DATE: November 2013

GENERAL CONTRACTOR: Wales McLelland
TILT-UP CONTRACTOR: Bach Construction
TILT-UP SUPPLIERRichform Construction Supply

SOME FACTS:
4 Story tilt; because the footprint of building was fairly small and there were three elevator cores all panels had to be built in casting beds off the slab.

WHAT IS NEW?
Richform T46-02 18″ Spreader Beam with Twin Shackles.  120,000 lb panel with 16 point T110.

270 ton crane.

WHAT IS EXCITING?
The 250,000 volt power lines in the background produce so much energy that the tilt up crew were getting mini shocks.  The crane had to be grounded and the boom was within 20’ of the power lines near this tilt-up project.
