Most high-rise towers follow a similar design pattern. The most common design is for the structure to have floors that stack over one another with virtually little deviation from one floor to the next. Look at any city skyline and you will see an abundance of buildings that fit this mold. The consistency of the floorplan allows for easier and less expensive engineering and construction due to the design pattern’s repetitive nature.

Lamp Lodge

The Conco Companies has reached the first milestone in the Lamp Lodge project, an 82-unit affordable housing community in downtown Los Angeles that will replace an existing Single-Room Occupancy building. Conco is providing concrete services including concrete pumping, formwork, shotcrete, place and finish, rebar, and excavation.

Lamp Lodge will be a 7-story building with a community room, laundry facility, second-floor courtyard, garden, and 16 parking spaces. Of the 82 units, one will be a manager’s apartment, and the rest will house homeless, special needs, and low-income residents. The 81 residential units will be priced for residents making only 30-35% of the area’s median income.

Lamp Lodge is designed by KFA Architecture and developed by Meta Housing Corporation, which specializes in affordable, mixed-income apartments and complexes, and public-funded projects that promote job opportunities to residents.

Conco was selected as the concrete services provider because the Lamp Lodge project requires fast-paced construction, and has a small footprint jobsite that requires precise logistics. The project utilizes over 2,500 cubic-yards of poured concrete for 22,000 square-feet of structural decks. Construction is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2022, and is one of several affordable housing projects Conco is proud to help build.

Conco is one of the foremost suppliers of concrete services for the Western U.S. We started in 1959 in the Bay Area by offering clients the best value on a broad range of concrete services and products. Since then, we have taken a leading role as top concrete contractors in the region. We have regional offices serving California, Oregon, Nevada, Colorado, and Washington.

Hillhurst

Since August 2020, The Conco Companies has been providing full concrete services for the new Cedar Sinai Medical Center on Hillhurst Avenue, in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. The services provided include shotcrete, concrete pumping, place and finish, rebar, and formwork. 

When completed, the medical center will cover an 11,000 square-feet footprint, and introduce a 3-story building for a total of 51,000 square feet of covered area—with three levels below-grade parking.

This project’s build is accompanied by logistical struggles that Conco is equipped to overcome. In particular, there is only one-sided access to the project site, with an excavation that is over 35-feet deep. The roadside access is also beset with overhead utility and electrical lines, making the incorporation of concrete and other construction materials into the project a feat. 

Conco and the general contractor, Pankow, strategized the work sequence for maximum effectiveness in a tiny footprint. Construction is expected to stay on course throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and be completed in May 2021.

The Conco Companies is in the Pre-Construction phase for Amani Apartments, a new apartment building that will be reserved for low- to very low-income households in Los Angeles. Conco will provide the affordable housing community a full range of structural concrete services, including pumping, excavation, formwork, shotcrete, and place and finish.

Developed by Wakeland Housing and managed by RD Olson Construction, the Amani Apartments is scheduled to finish construction by the second quarter of 2022. It will replace a vacant lot with a 5-story building of 54 affordable residential units. Conco will place over 1,000 cubic yards of concrete, with a total of 10,000 square feet of Slab-on-Grade, and a suspended deck.

Each residential unit will be a studio ranging from 393 to 424 square feet, with one unit being 875 square feet. The building features shotcrete columns and walls with board finish, and includes property management offices, community laundry facilities, a common room, an observation deck, and outdoor courtyards. 

The new affordable housing community will be located near the historic Victoria Park, at Pico and Crenshaw Boulevards. It is part of Proposition HHH, a $1.2 Billion bond that provides help and housing to homeless and low income residents across Los Angeles, and is one of several Los Angeles affordable housing projects that have chosen Conco for concrete services.

In late January 2021, The Conco Companies is scheduled to provide a full concrete services package for Chesterfield Apartments, an affordable housing community in south Los Angeles.

The residential units will be studios ranging from 400 to 415 square feet, and one will be a 836 square feet, 2-bedroom manager’s unit. Also featured in the building are a common area for onsite property management offices, bicycle storage room, community room, community laundry facilities, and outdoor landscaped areas. These amenities will enhance the living standard for low-income and homeless residents.

This project is developed by Wakeland Housing, managed by RD Olson Construction, and is part of the passed Proposition HHH, a $1.2 Billion bond that was designed to provide help and housing to homeless and low income residents across Los Angeles.
