Conco Makes Progress with New Medical Center Amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic
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.
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.
