Our extensive portfolio is diverse in the kinds of projects we have done.  Conco’s concrete services have been enlisted for projects in healthcare, education, industry, residential, and parking as well as entertainment.  We had the privilege to be involved with the building of the renowned Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, CA. a few years ago.

Nokia Theater Concrete Construction

The Nokia Theater is part of L.A. Live, a complex of retail, entertainment, and sports development that has contributed to the revival of L.A.’s downtown area.  Located in the South Park district of downtown and adjacent to the Staples Center, the complex also contains the ESPN studios and ESPN Zone restaurant/arcade complex, The Grammy Museum, Club Nokia, and the AEG Building.

Primary developer of the enormous project was the Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) and the total cost of the project was $2.5 billion. The project contractor on the Nokia Theater and several of the other components was the Clark Construction Group; architect was RTKL Associates, Inc. and ELS Architecture & Urban Design.  Engineer was John A. Martin & Associates, Inc.

Conco’s contribution was to build the two-story below-grade parking structure that provides the structural support for the complex.  One of the several awards the project received for design and construction elements included the Excellence in Concrete Award from the American Concrete Institute – Southern California Chapter.

The 7,100-seat Nokia Theater opened its doors for the first event on October 18, 2007 with a concert from the Eagles and the Dixie Chicks.  In the several years since opening, the theater has become a popular venue for many events including the home of the Primetime Emmy Awards until at least 2018.  It has also hosted the American Music Awards and the ESPYs as well as several finale shows for American Idol.  The former Los Angeles Mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa, said at the time, “Without a doubt, Nokia Theatre…is the cherry on top of the major successes we’re witnessing in downtown.”

Conco is a leading supplier of concrete services for the Western United States. We have built our reputation in the Los Angeles area with superior concrete formwork, reinforcing, place and finish, shotcrete and other ancillary services that benefit from our vast experience.  Our concrete services include commercial, educational, parking and other construction development as well as public works projects and highways.

Several years ago Conco provided concrete services for United Spiral Pipe to help build a new state-of-the-art spiral welded pipe manufacturing plant in Pittsburg, Calif.   United Spiral Pipe LLC (USP) is a joint venture of United States Steel Corporation and two South Korean firms, the steelmaker Posco and SeAH, a spiral steel pipe manufacturer.

Concrete Pumping - United Spiral Pipe

The USP facility broke ground in February, 2008 and started commercial production in January, 2010.  It is estimated that over 320,000 hours of building and construction trade labor was used in the project.  The plant is one of the most advanced and efficient spiral pipe mills in North America to-date with an overall cost of $130 million.  It was constructed to LEED standards and exceeds California’s Title 24 lighting requirements.  The architect and engineer on the project was the Continental Design And Management Group.

USP is a great addition to the city of Pittsburg as well as the whole Bay Area community.  When the plant first opened, it provided 120 new, full-time manufacturing jobs.  That was a good step in the right direction for an area that they had been losing manufacturing jobs.

The size of the new facility is enormous.  The rectangular shaped building is 35 ft. tall, more than six city blocks long, and approximately a block and a half wide.  According to the USP website the “new plant will have world-class pipe making and coating facilities and be capable of producing 300,000 net tons of API specification line pipe per year in outside diameters ranging from 24 inches to 64 inches.”  The massive steel pipes are used to transport oil and natural gas for the expanding North America pipe market.

Washington Square, BellevueBellevue, WA has consistently been rated as one of the top places in the country to live, work, and to raise a family.  The vibrant community offers a first-class school district, a wide-range of outdoor activities, and entertainment venues as well as great restaurants and retails stores.

Conco was pleased to provide concrete services for the Washington Square high-rise condominium project.  It was the first stage of a large development complex that is being built in the heart of downtown Bellevue.  The two 22-story condo towers were completed in 2008 and have a total of 377 residential units.  Built as a model of urban living, the development boasts an attractively landscaped courtyard, tree-lined walkways, and a convenient dog park.  Amenities include concierge services, night doorman, spa, massage rooms, and a fitness center.

The complete 10.5-acre project is referred to as the “Superblock” and is a mixed-use neighborhood.  A second phase of construction is still on-going and is expected to be finished sometime in 2014 or early 2015.  When the development is complete, it will include a total of five high-rise towers of residential condos and townhouses, office space, and a hotel.  There will also be 160,000 sq. ft. of ground-level retail space.

The project was developed by Wasatch Development Associates and the architect was the firm of COLLINSWOERMAN who are known for their designs of sustainable communities and mixed-use properties.  The engineer was DCI Engineers who are headquartered in Bellevue.  The condos offer a pedestrian friendly lifestyle with nearby shopping, business district, and entertainment.  The Bellevue Square Mall, Lincoln Square Cinemas, and the Tateuchi Center for performing arts are conveniently located just down the block from Washington Square.

For over 50 years, Conco has been providing premium concrete services and is one of the most trusted concrete contractors in Seattle.  We partner with clients on every project from the pre-construction stage right through to final completion to maximize efficiency and ensure goals and budgets are met.  Our concrete services include commercial, educational, parking and other construction development as well as public works projects.
