The Conco Companies began construction on the new 100,000 SF Mt. San Antonio College (SAC) Student Center on December 10, 2020. The original center opened in 1953 on a much smaller campus and needs to be expanded and updated for Mt. SAC’s current needs. Conco is providing a multitude of concrete services including but not limited to formwork, shoring, pumping, and rebar fabrication. Working alongside Conco are the general contractor Tilden-Coil (CM), HPI Architecture, and MHP Structural Engineers.
Conco came out on top of a competitive bid process. Our approach varied drastically from that of CM. Our understanding of how to sequence the footings and tie the second-level elevated slabs into the slab on grade at level 2 were key factors in meeting an aggressive schedule. Since then we’ve proven our efforts, and have been requested for opinions on future projects that the CM is undertaking.
When open, the Mt. SAC Student Center will welcome students into an inclusive and comfortable environment that fosters student engagement. The first floor will have a convenience store and added study spots for individual students and groups. The second floor will feature a multi-cultural center, student club kitchen, and an updated room for Associated Student meetings. On all three floors will be event space and conference rooms.
Planned for substantial completion by December 22, 2021, Conco is excited to provide a much-needed space to support education and build a stronger future.
