Seattle commercial concrete contractors, The Conco Companies, is working with Kirkland Developers, Kirkland Construction Group, and OTAK Architects to bring an immense and exciting new project to The Waterfront Vancouver development.
An Evolution by the Riverside
The waterfront district in downtown Vancouver, Washington has taken many shapes during its lifetime. Once a hub of lumber mills and shipping depots in the 19th century, then a set of shipyards in the early and mid-20th century that produced ships for World Wars I and II, and lastly the home to a paper mill that closed in the 1990s – this industrial area next to Columbia River has undergone many iterations. None, however, have been quite as dramatic a shift as the district’s newest conception: The Waterfront Vancouver. The Waterfront Vancouver is a massive redevelopment and revitalization project that has turned this industrial area into a bustling mixed-use development that includes residential, commercial, and retail space.
Among the many new buildings rising along the river are Hotel Indigo and Kirkland Tower, the largest project to date in the development. The $100 million project includes not only the four-star, eight-story hotel and the 12-story residential tower with condominiums, but also 17,000 square feet of retail space and multiple high-end dining facilities. Hotel Indigo boasts luxe amenities such as concierge services, valet, dry cleaning, and a dog-washing station while Kirkland Tower will feature one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos, whose residents can also utilize the amenities of the hotel.
Comprehensive Concrete Services for a Large-Scale Project
To begin construction on the project, the Conco Companies provided a 33,357 square foot concrete mat foundation that ranged in thickness from four feet to just under six feet and was designed to contend with the high water table at the waterfront. In addition to the foundation, Conco will also provide two concrete stair cores and an elevator core, as well as the decks. With the target top-out date of mid-October 2019, Conco is completing one deck pour every 4-5 days, with each deck up to the eighth level requiring three pours to finish. Altogether, Conco will have provided the concrete pumping and finishing, concrete reinforcement, concrete formwork, and shotcrete services for the massive project.
