SANTEE, Calif. - Feb. 17, 2020 - PRLog -- This week construction began on the retaining wall for RiverView at Town Center, a new Taylor Morrison homes community (formerly a William Lyon community) in Santee, California. Fast Tilt Retaining Wall was contracted to construct the wall using their patented wall system, which utilizes a patented tilt-up construction technology to build walls up to 40% faster than conventional masonry walls.

"The speed at which we can build these walls was definitely a factor in selecting Fast Tilt," said Russ Baumgartner, President of Fast Tilt Retaining Wall. "Our technology allows us to build the walls at the same time or even before the footings, and then we just lift each panel into place with the crane. It's a painless and fast process, and very economical." After the footings are complete, Baumgartner estimates that the 400-foot length of wall will be erected in just over a day.

The tilt-up construction method also gives the wall system another advantage; because the walls are built flat on the ground, it's easy to add decorative elements to add beauty and distinction to the wall that are impossible to achieve using other methods. At RiverView at Town Center, the wall will be customized to complement a decorative sidewalk next to the nearby San Diego River.

The firm has an open invitation to architects, engineers, contractors and developers to view the wall construction in action and ask questions about the wall's capabilities and design potential. The walk-through will be scheduled for the primary day for crane operation on February 24, 2020. Additional updates will be published as the project progresses.

About Fast Tilt Retaining Wall
Fast Tilt Retaining Wall is an award-winning retaining wall system that utilizes tilt-up construction methods to create walls quickly, economically and with unlimited design potential. Fast Tilt walls can be used as soil retention barriers, levees, seawalls, fences, channels or deep foundations.

The Fast Tilt Retaining Wall system cuts construction time by up to 40% over traditional masonry or cast-in-place systems. Walls are constructed horizontally before being lifted into place, allowing for customized finishes including exposed aggregate, polished, stamped and mosaic.
