Apartment Tower Topped Out by Conco in Downtown Vancouver
In May 2020, The Conco Companies topped out Angelo Tower, which is part of a project that produced multiple low-income housing units in the Vancouver community. Also contributing to the project were Robertson & Olsen Construction, Wilson Architects PLLC, and KGA Consulting Engineers.
Conco was selected to contribute to the concrete portion of the project because of our expertise in:
- Concrete pumping
- Horizontal elevated-deck formwork
- Vertical cast-in-place formwork
- Reinforcing supply & fabrication
The project scope included pouring Slab on Grade (SOG), three elevated decks, and three elevated Slab on Metal Decks (SOMDs). This totaled to a project size of 150,000 SF. The challenges of this project included pouring multiple mat foundations, and placing round architectural columns for a high-end appearance.
Conco began the project in November 2019 and adjusted our process accordingly to COVID-19 guidelines. The Angelo Project is one of the first projects we worked on during the pandemic, and one of many that will be completed quickly and safely.
