OTTAWA, Canada, January 23, 2011 — Shawn Hickey, President of SiteCast will lead a three-hour seminar on tilt-up at this year's World of Concrete, January 23-27 in Las Vegas. World of Concrete is an annual international event dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction industries.
Shawn is a sought after advisor of tilt-up construction and frequently lectures on the topic throughout the United States and Canada.
Tilt-up is a construction technique whereby reinforced concrete panels are cast on-site then tilted into position. These panels become the load-bearing structural components and eliminate the need for perimeter columns. Its benefits are many, including speed of construction, reduced cost of ownership and energy efficiency.
