Second Step - Pouring the Tiltwall Panels

 

Workers pour the cement into the forms in a manner very similar to the way floor slabs are poured.
Once the cement has been poured, workers trowel the panels for a smooth, consistent finish.

Workers use a variety of equipment, including power trowels, to make sure the panels are level and smooth. These panels will become the exterior (and sometimes interior) walls of the building, necessitating a consistent smoothness or texture on all the panels.

The process for building the forms and pouring the panels goes quickly. An experienced crew can take a large project from bare slab to completed panels in a matter of two weeks.
