The Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) welcomed its first Chinese member, Shanghai Open Steel Structure Company Ltd., and the start of introductory relations of tilt-up construction designs and methods to one of the world’s largest construction markets.
“Shanghai Open Steel Structure Company joins a rapidly expanding list of international firms looking to the TCA for education, support and professional networking,” states Jim Baty, TCA technical director.
TCA managing director, Mitch Bloomquist, adds, “The purpose of the TCA is to represent the global expansion of tilt-up construction and to partner burgeoning markets with the experience of the many mature markets.”
Through this new affiliation, the TCA will begin working to introduce the many technologies unique to the tilt-up industry that TCA membership represents to the Chinese market through the interests and efforts of Shanghai Open Steel Structure Co.
