Dayton Superior® Corporation and Tilt-Up Design Systems, LLC Announce Technology Sponsorship
HEATHROW, Florida – Dayton Superior Corporation has reached an agreement with Tilt-Up Design Systems, LLC (TDS) to become a Technology Sponsor of TDS and Tilt-Werks®, their web-based tilt-up design and construction software. The sponsorship gives Dayton Superior the ability to communicate, through Tilt-Werks, with the tilt-up community in real-time about their projects, from material estimates to lifting and bracing requirements, resulting in a faster, more streamlined design and construction process.
“We are very excited to become a sponsor of the Tilt-Werks technology. Projects developed using Tilt-Werks will have immediate access to our tilt-up services, starting with preconstruction and continuing all the way to tilt-up lifting and bracing engineering,” said Rick Lindstrom, Director of Engineering for Dayton Superior.
As a part of the technology sponsorship, TDS developed a proprietary interface with Tilt-Werks for Dayton Superior’s lifting and bracing engineering software. This interface allows specific aspects of projects designed/detailed in Tilt-Werks to be shared with Dayton Superior. These projects can then proceed directly to lifting and bracing engineering, completely bypassing the panel data entry process. This reduces the turnaround time required to complete this phase of the project.
Joe Steinbicker, President of Tilt-Up Design Systems, LLC, stated, “One of the many advantages of the tilt-up method of construction is speed. Tilt-Werks is a fully integrated technology that further expedites the design and construction process for tilt-up projects from preliminary design to integration with industry suppliers, such as Dayton Superior. We are thrilled to have Dayton Superior as a Technology Sponsor.”
While at the TDS website, www.Tilt-Werks.com, visitors and subscribers can link to the Dayton Superior website, www.DaytonSuperior.com, to access information about their tilt-up products, procedures, best practices, and technology that benefits the entire industry.

ABOUT TILT-UP DESIGN SYSTEMS AND TILT-WERKS®
Tilt-Up Design Systems, LLC (TDS) was founded by a group of structural engineers with more than 35 years of experience in the tilt-up industry. The company’s proprietary web based software, Tilt-Werks®, is a sophisticated tilt-up application used to develop a complete tilt-up project design and construction package including the Building Information Modeling (BIM) data. Building geometry and engineering data are input via the user friendly interface. As data is entered, Tilt-Werks builds the tilt-up walls on screen, allowing the designer to visually verify the accuracy of the input and interactively make additions and changes. Using this information, Tilt-Werks then automatically generates complete panel design/detail drawings, engineering calculations, reinforcing steel drawings, reinforcing bar cut lists, material and product quantity takeoffs, cost estimates and exportable data files for use with other drawing, design and estimating tools.
