Tilt-Up Construction Highlights Large California Project

Fresno County officials believe work on a very large industrial project shows the economy is moving in the right direction. Construction workers get into a certain rhythm when it's time to tilt up a 90,000 pound wall. The "tilt-up" process of moving concrete walls into place happens at a brisk pace which is why the work on industrial warehouses are getting done in relatively quick fashion. "What's so nice is we can lift 30-40 panels a day. So what happens is you drive by one day and don't see anything. You drive by a couple of days later and all of a sudden there's an instant building there," said Ray Nitti a Nitti Graycor general manager.
