First Step - Preparing the Panels' Forms

 

Prior to the tilt-up process beginning, the floor slab is poured to create the floor, where the tilt-up panels will be created.
The first step in creating the tilt-up panels is to draw lines on the floor slab where the panels will be formed and poured.

Once the lines have been drawn, workers place brackets to outline where the tilt-up panels' outside boundaries, windows and door openings will be.

Ensuring the exact placement of the forms is critical to the success of the project. The tilt-up panels must be sized and positioned in precisely the right dimensions and location.

Once assembled, the tilt-up panel forms create a jigsaw puzzle pattern on the floor slab. But the random appearance to the forms' placement is deceiving; each form is positioned precisely to allow the crews to tilt them into their final spot in the coming days.

Rebar is placed in the completed forms. Rebar is a critical component of the tilt-up construction process. The rebar strengthens the tilt-up panels, making them safer to lift into a standing position and more durable once in place.

Workers also position embeds and inserts into the tilt-up panels so they will become part of the tilt-up panels once the pouring takes place.

With the wood forms securely constructed and the rebar and embeds / inserts in place, the tilt-up panels in the photo above are ready to be poured with concrete.
