The Conco Companies is providing a full range of concrete services for the Hanover Waverly Project in Oakland, CA. The mixed-use project is being developed by the Houston-based owner, the Hanover R.S. Limited Partnership and designed by TCA Architects. The general contractor on the project is Hanover and the structural engineer is SCA Consulting Engineers.
The 7-story Hanover Waverly will offer 224 apartments as well as 22,000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail. TCA’s contemporary style building follows the curved lot line and highlights the building’s important location at the corner of Valdez Street and 27th Street. The project also has a below grade parking structure with 226 parking stalls. The building’s exterior is comprised of high quality materials including stone, brick, glass, metal wall panels and cement plaster. In addition the numerous changes of plane, balconies and other projections add visual interest throughout the faces of the building.
For the project, Conco’s responsibilities included providing concrete pumping, reinforcement, shotcrete, formwork, and finishing services. We placed around 17,600 cubic yards of concrete and shotcrete as well as provided 4,000,000 pounds of rebar and post tension reinforcement. Conco’s crews began working on the project in April of 2017 and the job was completed in January of 2018. We also worked on the Hanover Uptown, which is just down the street.
According to TCA, the building follows the Broadway-Valdez Design Guidelines. The Waverly’s design breaks the building up mid-block and the variations in color, material and line help to highlight the break between the north and south halves of the building. Residents of the building will have many amenities such as a fitness room, bike parking, dog grooming and clubhouse. There will also be three courtyards at the second level of the building.
Conco’s 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.
