Conco is providing a wide range of concrete services for The Asher, a 900,000 sq. ft. multi-family development. This includes concrete pumping, reinforcement, formwork, finishing, construction trucking as well as shotcrete services. Conco is pleased to be working with project developer Carmel Partners. The engineer, CKC Structural Engineers, was also recently recognized with the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute 2018 Honors Design and Construction Award for Tower 12 in Seattle. The Asher, situated on a 12.6 acre site, is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
The two, four-story buildings of The Asher will have a total of 632 open floor plan units in Fremont, CA. The wrapped style buildings will feature private patios and balconies with glass or custom wood railings in all units. Each building will also be paired with an above-grade parking structure, totaling 480,000 sq. ft. and 1,200 parking spaces. The South Garage will also feature an 18,000 sq. ft. roof deck on the sixth level, including a pool, bowling alley, and fitness room. The project’s unique shape and orientations includes several landscaped courtyards, effectively creating spaces for smaller communities within the larger development.
The long spans needed in the spacious amenity areas were accommodated by utilizing a concrete post-tensioned slab which was integrated into the light frame structure. This maximized flexibility of the space by minimizing the internal columns needed. The site also had soil issues which were ultimately solved using a shallow foundation system below the parking structure and a post-tension foundation below the residential structure. The two structures have significantly different weights and so it was necessary to balance these foundation systems to minimize differential settlement.
Conco’s goal is to be the top supplier of concrete services in the Western U.S. and to bring our expertise and professionalism to each project. We continue to upgrade and expand our facilities to better serve the growing market for commercial, industrial, educational, parking structure projects and other development. For the best value and quality, trust your project to one of the area’s leading lightweight concrete contractors.
