On October 26, 2023, the ACI So Cal Chapter hosted its prestigious Concrete Awards in Downtown LA, recognizing outstanding achievements in the field. Conco proudly received honors for two remarkable projects: the Mt. SAC Student Center and The Grand.

The Mt. SAC Student Center was specifically acknowledged for its excellence in the Low-Rise Building category. Notably, this project boasts a sophisticated foundation system strategically distributed across various elevations on two different levels. The cantilevered nonisometric roof slab required thousands of Square Feet of shoring to be installed, maintained, and removed.  However, once complete, the red roof capping the 18,000 Cubic Yards of concrete was quite iconic for this community college.  Designed to provide an inclusive and inviting atmosphere fostering student engagement, the first floor will feature a convenience store and additional study spaces for both individual and group use. Kudos to the entire team, including Tilden Coil, MHP Structural Engineers, CEMEX, and HPI Architects.

Meanwhile, The Grand-LA received accolades for its excellence in the High-Rise category. This ambitious project involved three substantial mat pours, totaling an impressive 25,500 cubic yards of concrete. The cumulative concrete poured thus far stands at a remarkable 83,201 cubic yards, covering foundations, structural slabs, columns, walls, and shotcrete. The mixed-use development includes a 39-story residential tower, a 20-story Equinox Hotel connected by a courtyard, and 176,000 square feet of retail space featuring shops, restaurants, and a movie theater complex. Developed through a public-private partnership and spearheaded by Related Companies, with design by renowned architect Frank Gehry (also responsible for the adjacent Disney Music Hall), The Grand project stands as a testament to collaborative excellence.

2019 ECA Awards- Conco

The Conco Companies is honored to announce and congratulate Doug Marquis of Conco Pumping on being awarded Engineering Contractors’ Association (ECA) Personal Safety Award.

At their annual installation of officers, the Engineering Contractors’ Association (ECA) awarded Doug Marquis of Conco Pumping with their Personal Safety Award.  Doug was recognized for his exceptional work in the construction field forwarding worker safety.  His achievements include working with equipment manufacturers to improve the safety of boom pump operators in 2018. He improved their safety by collaboratively developing systems to create tie off points when working on boom pumps. The tie-off points aid in fall prevention and related injuries.

In 2019, Doug further improved safety in the field of concrete pumping by developing two training programs. First, he developed a procedure for new and existing operators that guides and educates employees on proper concrete hose inspection before use. Second, he developed a 180 minute online safety course that reviews concrete boom pump operation and safety, as well as, hose inspection and cleaning procedures, illness and fall prevention. 

Since 1976, the ECA has helped Southern California construction professionals by providing leadership and continuing education for its members. 

We congratulate Doug on his ECA award and commend him for his commitment to safety and contributions to The Conco Companies.

2018 SCCA Atwood Award- Conco Pumping

Within the concrete construction industry there are several avenues for recognition for Los Angeles commercial concrete contractors, such as for the design, scope, or execution of a project. And while an award for outstanding concrete work on a restoration project is impressive, awards garnered for the safety of a project or overall operations are particularly important to the industry. One such award is the Albert H. Atwood Safety Achievement Award which seeks to recognize a significant contribution to safety and accident prevention by a company or individual of the Southern California Contractor’s Association (SCCA). For 2019, SCCA announced that the Conco Companies were selected as the winners of Atwood Safety Achievement Award.

Conco’s Innovations in Safety Practices

In order to be considered for the Albert H. Atwood Safety Achievement Award, candidates must submit an application to the award committee that outlines the safety issue they worked to address and the practices or initiatives the candidate employed to mitigate the issue, along with the impact of those efforts. As a prominent commercial concrete contractor offering a range of concrete services, Conco Pumping recognized a gap in safety measures with concrete pumping and belting technologies: there was a general absence of fall protection systems on concrete boom pumps, separate placing booms, and Telebelt mobile conveyors. Conco’s concrete pumping safety team worked diligently over the course of four years to address this significant and unnecessary safety risk by partnering with manufacturers to provide fall protection systems on its equipment.

Years of Work to Increase Safety

Conco’s concrete pumping safety team used a combination of approaches to shift the safety provisions of concrete pump and conveyor manufacturers. For new equipment, they ordered and purchased the technology with the contingency that fall protection systems would be provided with the delivered equipment, which was already a common practice in Europe for standard boom pump models. Conco also worked with engineers and manufacturers to develop and test new fall protection systems, and then required that they be installed on the concrete boom and placing pumps and conveyors they utilize. Conco has shared their work openly with the industry at large, leading to a increased adoption of these fall protection systems in the industry.

The Conco Companies’ mission is to be the best supplier of concrete services in the Western U.S. and to bring expertise and incomparable quality to each project. We continue to upgrade and expand our facilities to better serve the growing market for commercial, educational, parking structures, public works projects, and other development.
