Tilt-Werks® was originally designed and utilized as an internal software application. The concept for Tilt-Werks® is to provide an automated way to design tilt-up projects and produce structural drawings from design data input. This system has been utilized for more than two decades on over 400 tilt-up buildings. The decision to bring this concept to the web was done not only to provide a cost effective way for structural engineers to design and share building projects, but to enhance the productivity and efficiency of all parties involved in a tilt-up construction project. The Tilt-Werks® application features a user interface that allows designers, contractors and material providers alike to experience the benefits of online project collaboration.
The technology of Tilt-Werks® is unique in the tilt-up industry. This online resource allows all parties involved in a tilt-up project to benefit from increased design and construction efficiency. Tilt-Werks® provides a design and communication resource for structural engineers, designers, architects, contractors, material manufacturers, fabricators and material suppliers to increase their profit margins on every tilt-up construction project and to alleviate miscommunication about project enhancements or changes. Tilt-Werks® speeds the process from concept to completion of a tilt-up project and allows the project to be built more efficiently.
The Tilt-Werks® collaborative technology has been created by a team of tilt-up industry experts. The functionality of the system comes from the Tilt-Up Design Systems, LLC (TDS) teams' experience in the industry. Tilt-Werks® has been utilized in the design of more than 400 buildings just as a proprietary application. Bringing this technology to market enables the industry as a whole to utilize a system that has been created through over 10 years of user experience and more than 30,000,000 square feet of building construction.
Our experts at TDS developed a sophisticated user interface to link all of the parties involved in tilt-up construction, allowing for faster communication about project details and transfer of material lists to potential suppliers, thus expediting the project construction.
