The Conco Companies is providing a full range of concrete services on the Gateway Village Project in Santa Clara, CA for the Palo Alto based owner/developer Essex Property Trust, Inc. The project is designed by BDE Architecture and the general contractor is ZCON Builders. The structural engineer is FBA Structural Engineers. The 840,563 sq. ft. project includes a 476-unit apartment building and parking garage wrap. The 6-story building is designed to wrap around a 5-story parking garage with a basement along with an additional 3 to 4 story residential component that surrounds the entire residential units. The parking garage will accommodate 776 vehicles. The Gateway Village Project is located at the corner of Lawrence Expressway and El Camino Real.
Our responsibilities include providing concrete pumping, reinforcement, formwork, finishing, and shotcrete services. For the project, we expect to place 29,900 cubic yards of concrete as well as shotcrete. We are also providing 4,500,000 pounds of rebar and post tension reinforcement. Conco crews began work in March 2017 and we expect to complete the job in February 2018.
Along with the residential component to the Gateway Village Project, the 12.6-acre site will also include 108,600 sq. ft. of retail and commercial development. It will offer small courtyards, plazas and open spaces as well as a beautifully landscaped central garden and public plaza that includes a performance area, food kiosks and eating areas, and children’s play areas. Lush, landscaped pedestrian paths will link retail shops as well as residential housing and provide a safe separation from vehicle traffic. The apartment residences are set back from the retail area to ensure privacy and quiet.
The Conco Companies’ mission is to be the best supplier of concrete services in the Western United States and to bring expertise, experience and quality to each project. 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.
