Project Size: 28,000 Sqft Auditorium, Classroom and Parking Building
The Conco Companies is contributing various concrete services to the Arts Complex building at Cathedral High School in Los Angeles. The 350-seat theater will provide the opportunity for students to further explore and develop their interests in the arts before college. The new auditorium features an exposed concrete thrust stage, a type of stage the extends into the audience with seating around three sides of the stage. This unique design required careful planning and precise execution to create the stage and surrounding seatings’ flooring. Conco worked to carefully plan the dimensions of the areas onsite and execution of the different stages in setting, pouring and perfecting the concrete of these fundamental pieces of the auditorium.
Conco began working on the project in September 2017 and responsibilities include providing concrete formwork, concrete pumping, concrete finishing and shotcrete services for the project. Conco was selected for this project among a select groups of contractors due to their vast array of concrete services, particularly formwork, pumping, shotcrete as well as cast in place vertical and horizontal concrete construction. With difficult project constraints such as a compact construction site next to the school’s playing fields that make planning and on-time execution essential, Conco’s vast experience and concrete services made them the leading candidate for the project. Conco’s work on the project is expected to be completed in April 2018.
