Out of curiosity, what is the typical panel thickness and what seismic zone
are you in? What is the ratio of wall to floor area?
I agree every contractor will have an entirely different perspective
depending on their expertise. My experience with tilt-up over three stories
is limited, with two story being far more typical. I am interested in the
experience of others.

I have not followed the entire Tilt-up thread, however I am currently
working on several Tilt-up projects of the 3 to 4 story variety with all
exterior load bearing walls. They appear to be as economical as other
systems. But that typically depends on the contractors perspective.
