It’s a busy time of the year for many people. Some are back in the swing of the school year. Others are back at work but wishing they were still on their relaxing summer vacation. It’s back to meetings, cooler weather and a packed schedule.
We’re keeping busy here at PierTech Systems, too. Just last week, we had the opportunity to attend and exhibit at the 2019 Tilt-Up Convention and Expo in Atlanta. Held at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, the annual event attracts contractors, architects, engineers, developers, manufacturers, suppliers and more from the tilt-up concrete industry. In addition to an array of exhibitors, it features networking, education, demos, awards, certification and updates on new research and technologies within the field.
At this unique event, we got to highlight why the PierTech approach to tilt-up construction puts us at a level above our competitors. Unlike other companies, we utilize our patented Tilt-Up, Insta-Brace Anchor, a unique design consisting of three helix plates welded to a 1 ½” square bar shaft. This shaft is stronger than the steel often used by other manufacturers and enables stronger buildings to be constructed much more quickly and easily. When the project is complete, the Insta-Brace Anchor can be removed and even reused down the line.
Another thing separates us from other tilt-up construction companies is our use of helical pier technology. Though it’s been around for many years, utilizing it in tilt-up construction applications is unique to PierTech. Not only is helical piering cost-effective, it doesn’t require much – if any – concrete and can be performed in situations with limited access. Other benefits of using helical pier technology in tilt-up construction applications include simple and quick installation, elimination of curing times, territorial protection and on-site training from our experienced and certified staff.
