Cutting-Edge Green Construction Enters Tampa Bay’s  Residential Real Estate Market

Palm Crest Place Uses Energy-efficient, 1-day Construction Method 

Bringing innovative and energy-efficient design into their new 16-home community, Palm Crest Place, located in Clearwater, FL, local construction company (Wytek Construction) and new community developer (Shanta Developers) will give homeowners the option of using tilt-wall construction as they custom build each of the homes.

A new way of building and used primarily in new construction commercial projects, tilt-wall construction is the ideal wall for the Florida climate. Historically used in commercial structures because of the time-saving during the build and the energy efficiency benefits after construction, it provides cost-savings for both construction firms and property owners. In Tampa Bay, in recent years, Raymond James and the Women's Center both opted for tilt-wall construction.

“Tilt-wall construction is a relatively new concept for the residential market but is the ideal wall for Florida homes,” said Natalie Scott, Realtor at Smith and Associates Real Estate. “The ‘tilt-walls’ are made from solid concrete and engineered to withstand hurricane-force winds of up to 150 mph. They are also heavily insulated, soundproof, termite-proof, and impervious to water because they are sealed like an aquarium, preventing water flow into the home,” she added.

The media and construction professionals are invited to witness the live demonstration of the tilt-up construction process as well as a Q&A session with Dan Wigh, President, Wytek Construction, and Ravi Patel of Shanta Developers.


Date: Friday, February 16, 2018

Time: 10 am - 12 pm with Q&A at 11 pm

Location: 2988 Breezy Meadows Drive, Clearwater, FL 33760

RSVP: Sarah Lesch, Playbook Public Relations 

(813) 727-4077

Mr. Wigh believes this is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in green building to learn how tilt-up construction can benefit residential communities throughout Florida. “Palm Crest Place is a community of homes that are built to the highest standards of energy-efficiency. Our approach to building is focused on sustainability, ensuring a more positive and long-term relationship with the environment. People will be amazed how quickly the home’s walls are created. This type of wall construction takes hours not days, and the end result is a home with some of the sturdiest, strongest walls on the market,” says Wigh.
