At The Conco Companies, we pride ourselves on finding solutions that meet and in some cases exceed the challenging demands of our projects. One example is 970 Denny, a 44-story apartment building under construction in the South Lake Union neighborhood in Seattle, Washington. The redevelopment project is from the Holland Partner Group and Holland Construction is serving as the General Contractor.
Up until now, Conco had been pleased to construct a complete floor on a 5-day cycle using a single shift such as we did on the 815 Pine project, another 40 story residential tower in downtown Seattle. Now we are proud to report that on the 970 Denny, we successfully achieve a 4-day cycle with a single shift and without working Saturdays! The 970 Denny project has 6 levels of below-ground parking and rises 44 floors above the street. We achieved the 4-day cycle on levels 26,27 and 30 to 35, for a total of 8 floors.
As Gerard McGlynn, Holland Constructions’ Regional General Superintendent, notes it was only a few years ago that 6-day and 5-day deck cycles were barely achievable and typically required overtime and weekend work. He wholeheartedly commended the entire 970 team for proving that “with planning, collaboration among subcontractors and hard work this elusive 4-day cycle is achievable within a work week.”
McGlynn also instructed the 970 team to plot out the new hourly 4-day deck cycle poster. At the next subcontractor meeting; the old and now outdated 5-day cycle will ceremoniously be torn down and replaced with the new 4-day cycle. With this pace, we anticipate topping out at R4 the first week in January, 2018.
Conco has built a reputation for delivering projects on time and on budget. Often, we are selected as much for our premium concrete services as for our ability to accelerate the construction process and get the job done regardless of the challenges. By working closely with general contractors and owners, Conco strives to find solutions that meet the unique demands of each of our projects.
Conco is one of the leading concrete contractors in the Western U.S. and offers a wide range of quality services and products. We continue to upgrade and expand facilities to better serve the growing market for public works projects, commercial, parking structures, educational, and other construction development.
