Custom Concrete Tilt panel house ,Hawea Flat

Unlike most concrete tilt panel homes which have the panels pre made in a factory and then delivered to site .This home had all its panels made on site by us , using the future garage slab to form them on, this gave us much more flexibility with details and finishes to achieve the clients vision.
 This home has a mix of timber frame walls clad with cedar weatherboards and concrete rough cast panels , interior was a mix of standard gib , ply and smooth finish concrete walls which give it a slight industrial feel with predominatly timber floors which soften the upto 4.5meter high concrete panels in the living area.
For this job we used the nivana system which is a insulated  concrete panel 140mm concrete 50mm polystyrene 50mm concrete exterior.

 Tilt panels make an ideal low maintenance home with a stable indoor temperature due to the large mass of the walls  being able to store the heat produced internally from a wood burner etc and also through passive heating from the low angled winter sun .The walls will slowely release the heat as the room cool s providing a stable temperature ie no more coming home to a cold home.They also work to cool the house in the summer by absorbing the heat built up in the room again keeping a stable indoor temp.


  1. I have been reading up on the new construction tips for businesses and came across concrete tilt up panels. This is such a fantastic idea. Making the concrete and shipping it to the site is a much more effective technique for most projects.
