The Conco Companies are providing the structural concrete services for Riverside County’s East County Detention Center (ECDC) located in Indio, California. The 516,000 sq. ft. project is a replacement and expansion to the existing Indio Jail Facility and is being constructed in two phases. The project consists of a three-story support building with a connecting tunnel to a four-story structure containing two housing units and mezzanine levels.
Conco’s responsibilities include supplying and performing services totaling 55,000 cubic yards of concrete. The four-level housing units are stacked in two separate “pods” and will be constructed of cast-in-place concrete as will the support building. We are also utilizing our pumps to pour piles 60’ below ground-level for Becho, another trade partner. Final completion of the project is expected in December, 2017.
One of the project’s unique challenges is that the temperatures in Indio average 89°F and summer highs can reach 120°F. Crew safety becomes even more critical in this environment. We will have a full-time safety manager on site and the 100+ Conco employees and Conco subcontracted employees are adhering to ACI’s Hot Weather Concreting procedures.
