Re: moving existing tilt-ups

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Brian:
We had a tilt-up project in which the user, COSTCO, wanted to expand the
space. The contractor suggested moving three or four 30 ft.wide tilt-up
panels to the new exterior wall line. The roof glulam beams were shored
up, a temporary wood framed wall was erected, the existing walls were
busted loose at the foundations and unbolted at the roof, and lifted
into there new position. It was easily done. However, the contractor was
a tilt-up expert, and had done this kind of thing before.
	Good luck, Jim
