Tilt-Up Concrete Design Experts

Recognized as industry leaders in tilt-up concrete design and construction, the LJB team has pioneered many design advancements during the past 50 years—including multi-story wall panels, cast-in architectural finishes and progressive collapse avoidance. And, LJB has won more Tilt-Up Concrete Association Achievement Awards than any other design firm.

Deep Design-Build Roots

From the day we took on our first structural project, we have worked closely with construction partners. That means we understand how our designs and details impact field production and construction cost. Our long history using the design-build method includes more than 3,000 design-build projects.

Engineering & Steel Detailing

LJB implements the steel detailing process concurrently with the development of structural design drawings to compress construction schedules. This carefully integrated process can shave up to two months off the steel fabrication schedule and greatly improve quality.
