High Rise Second Place Winner for the Premiere on Pine
The residential tower, Premiere on Pine (formerly known as 815 Pine) is a Second Place Winner of the American Concrete Institute’s 2017 Excellence in Concrete Construction Awards in the High Rise category. This is quite an honor as there were only 12 winners from around the world. The winners were recognized at the “Celebrating Concrete Innovation and Excellence Across the Globe” Awards Gala during the ACI Concrete Convention and Exposition. Recipients of the award for the Premiere on Pine’s project include its owner and developer, Holland Partner Group; architect, Weber Thompson Architects; engineering firm, Cary Kopcznyski & Company; general contractor, Holland construction Inc.; and concrete contractor, The Conco Companies.
The tower’s use of high-strength concrete and reinforcing steel created maximum floor space for the small site and is the first building in Seattle to have a specified concrete strength of 15,000 psi in its columns. Along with showcasing the technological advancements in the concrete industry over the last couple of decades, it allowed the high-strength columns to be smaller than those found in similarly sized projects. Conco is extremely honored to receive the award from the ACI. We are proud to have been selected for this innovative project and to have been a part of this exceptional team.
