conctrucción "tilt-up"
Explanation:
....about the use of ‘tilt-up’ construction on the project, in which the concrete walls are formed on-site, then tilted up into place. The method is more cost effective than other, more traditional methods.

Concrete tilt-up The process of pouring concrete into forms on the ground, allowing the forms to harden and then raising the material to a vertical position to form walls.

Cada TECH-PANEL está compuesto de dos hojas de malla de alambre galvanizado hunidas por suportes de alambre también galvanizado. Es centro es de poliuretano. Despues de una simple instalación el TECH-PANEL es cubierto por cada uno de sus lados con concreto. El concreto se aplica manualmente, con maquinaria o usando el sistema TILT-UP de construcción.

tilt up = (aquí)inclinar hacia arriba, subir (muros de fachada)

My sugesstion is to footnote "tilt-up". For the time being there´s no standard translation.

Good luck.

CONSTRUCCIÓN BASCULANTE


Explanation:
I found a reference to "tilt-up" = "basculante". I don't believe the word "inclinada" (though some colleagues may suggest it)would be right for your context.

Hope it fits:-)
