Construction of the NFL Media Building Gets Underway with the Conco Companies
By 2020-21, Los Angelinos will have access to a large portion of its newest multi-use development project in the Inglewood neighborhood of the city: Hollywood Park. Since its conception, the expansive 300-acre campus has brought together the city’s best designers, developers, and commercial concrete contractors in Los Angeles. Now, Hollywood Park continues to add world-class amenities to its site and boasts an impressive array of attractions. Once completed, the development will have a total of 2,500 homes, 500,000 square feet of retail space, a 6,000 seat concert venue, over 900,000 square feet of office space, 300 hotel rooms, 25 acres of parks, 12 miles of walkable paths, and the new LA Stadium for the Rams and Chargers with 70,000 seats.
Stylish, Class A Office Space
The most recent project to begin construction in the ambitious development is the NFL Media Building. This eight-story high rise tower commenced construction in summer of 2019 and will include a connected two-story studio support facility and an adjacent studio structure to become the headquarters of the West Coast NFL Operations and Media. Slated to welcome tenants in summer of 2021, the project will provide 434,000 square feet of office space, 220,000 square feet of which will be available to lease for companies outside of NFL Operations and Media. Given the large scale and fast timeline of the project, the general contractors Pankow Builders selected the Conco Companies to provide commercial concrete contractor services.
Reliable, Quality Concrete Services
Conco was chosen for their ability to meet the project’s unique requirements, particularly the large amount of quality concrete finishing on a very accelerated schedule. Conco began work on the project in July 2019 and is expected to finish in September 2020. Within this fast turnaround, Conco will provide concrete pumping, placement, and finishing on all slab on grade and structural decks, including a studio level with stringently high tolerances for floor flatness and floor levelness.
Meeting Strict Standards
Floor flatness and floor levelness are indicated by an F-number, which is a quantitative way to indicate the flatness and levelness of a concrete floor. The F-number is an important metric for floors with random traffic patterns, as with the studio level of the NFL Media Building. For both measures, a high F-number is desired, and in particular, a high F-number for floor flatness is a result of a skilled concrete finisher working the surface of the concrete to achieve a flat floor. Conco’s reputation for quality concrete work ensures that the strict standards for the NFL Media Building will be met, while still keeping the project on time and on budget.
A significant part of this project is the local hire requirements. On June 26, 2019, The Conco Companies partnered with Pankow Builders, America’s Job Center and the Southern California Unions-Carpenters and Laborers among other entities at a Jobs Information & Resource Fair in Inglewood. Together we introduced local residents to the construction industry and the upcoming job opportunities.
Local residents were informed of the various projects. They were also informed of the different trades we work with at Conco as well as the process of becoming employed.
Superintendent Carlos Ambriz, Project Manager Nestor Miranda, Dispatcher Michael Calderon, and office Manager Dora Veronica were in attendance.
