The Rooms-to-Go concrete tilt-up project faced a number of unique challenges due to its size, the Florida heat, and a scarcity of water. In addition, the project required a crew of 60, working in all phases of the concrete construction process—placing foundations, forming and pouring slabs and panels, erecting panels, and patching—all at one time. The more than 40 main slab placements consumed an average of 600 yards of concrete per day, 6 days a week—a final total of more than 38,000 cubic yards of concrete.
