Teaming Up for Tilt-Wall Construction at PEM-AIR

Our mission at A.O. Construction is to provide high-quality construction services on time and within budget, maintaining lasting relationships with clients, subcontractors, architects and consultants, many of which go back several years. Sometimes this even means teaming up with other industry leaders to produce the final product for our customer. 

Take a look at our latest project in Brooksville, where we are working on a tilt-wall construction for PEM-AIR. Tilt-up construction features a series of concrete panels that are tilted up into place, forming a building’s exterior wall. They are formed together using wood, rebar, and concrete and then shaped and cut to match the final designs before concrete is poured into the forms and finished. Once they’re ready, the walls are tilted vertically and set on the foundational footings. 

This week we’re teaming up with Davis Construction to erect the pre-engineered portion of this building and the structure was designed by Butler Manufacturing. In total, this building is 60,000 square feet with overhead crane systems to assist in the repair of airplanes.

The tilt walls we’re working on will attach to the metal structure.

Photos 1-4 below show interior columns, secondary roof members, and the roof.  You can see the tilt wall being braced while it is attached.

We began this project on April 3, and we should be at substantial completion in eight weeks!
