About TCA and the Achievement Awards
The annual Achievement Awards competition is a year-round opportunity for any TCA member company to participate. Each year, the submittal process closes at the end of June to allow for the evaluation and award process that culminates with public announcement of the recipients during the TCA’s Convention in the fall.  To find out more about this program, the requirements and TCA membership in general, interested persons can visit the awards submission section of the TCA website or contact Mitch Bloomquist, managing director of the TCA.

About the TCA
TCA was founded in 1986 to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast tilt-up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S., combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
