In the dynamic world of construction, innovation is the cornerstone of progress. This innovation was fully displayed at the Tilt-Up Concrete Association’s (TCA) 2023 Annual Convention in Tampa, Florida. The convention served as a gathering point for a diverse spectrum of industry professionals, including contractors, architects, engineers, developers, suppliers, manufacturers, and students, all united by their interest in the transformative potential of tilt-up construction.

The TCA’s Annual Convention is a platform for those passionate about tilt-up construction to share insights, collaborate on groundbreaking ideas, and explore the latest advancements in the field. Over three days, attendees had the opportunity to immerse themselves in a wealth of educational content, networking opportunities, live demonstrations, tours, awards ceremonies, and entertainment. BBM Structural is a frontrunner in tilt-up construction, and we enjoyed being at this year’s event. Our booth was a focal point, showcasing our extensive expertise in tilt-up construction by having a video presentation highlighting the vast array of projects BBM has designed using the tilt-up building model.
