Achievement Awards

The 26th annual TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award announcements are fast approaching at the upcoming TCA Convention and Expo! The awards were created by the Tilt-Up Concrete Association so that projects using site-cast Tilt-Up concrete construction have an opportunity to be recognized for achievement in design, advancements in technology, and for truly unique techniques. Those in the industry pride themselves on the speed, quality, and effectiveness of Tilt-Up construction and the TCA recognizes the top projects in the industry each year. Fitzgerald Formliners was fortunate to have worked on such a project with Lithko Contracting in 2014 on The New Belgium Brewery Distribution Center in Asheville, North Carolina. Lithko utilized our Vac-U-Form Single Use Styrene form liner in Fluted Plank Pattern #16938. Will you be joining us at the Tilt-Up Convention and Expo in Denver, CO coming up October 10-12, 2016? We will have a booth set up, as well as participating in the Solutions Sandbox outdoor demonstration! Will you be at the 2016 Tilt-Up Convention and Expo?  Have a question or suggestion?
