While it is tempting for me to say that we have it all figured out since we are in such a mature market, I have been in the industry long enough to know that is not the case. Even in our area that has been using tilt-up for buildings for more than 50 years, the method is constantly evolving. It is always a challenge to meet the expectations of today's designers and develop creative ways to execute the design ideas that they generate. As we get better at constructing, they constantly challenge us with more difficult designs.
