The LA Business Journal‘s Commercial Real Estate Awards recently recognized two of The Conco Companies projects as “Gold Winners” in the categories for Best Sustainable Project and Best Multi-family Project. The entire Conco team is proud to have had the opportunity to provide high-quality concrete services for these smartly designed, award-winning projects.
Both of the distinguished projects are prime examples of our industry’s commitment to sustainability and will serve our communities for many years to come. We wish to congratulate the projects’ owners and developers, architects, and general contractors on the awards. Additionally Conco extends a special thanks to Swinerton Builders, Clark Construction, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, and Handel Architects who made these projects possible and for selecting Conco to provide concrete services for these projects.
Gold Winner: Best Sustainable Project
The LA Federal Courthouse won the Gold Award in the category for Best Sustainable Project. Referred to as “The Cube,” the 11-story, 631,000 sq. ft. courthouse was designed and built to earn LEED Platinum certification. The new building is equipped with high efficiency systems including a 1,200-ton central utility plant with a 130-ton heat recovery chiller and a 250 KW roof-mounted photovoltaic array of solar panels. In addition the courthouse features a large skylight that offers natural light and exterior “pleats” to maximize daylight penetration and minimize solar thermal gains.
Gold Winner: Best Multi-family Project
The Ten Thousand Apartment Tower won the Gold Award for the Best Multi-family Project. The 40-story, luxury residential tower has already become an iconic architectural landmark in the L.A. skyline with its uniquely angled rooftop and angular, glass sheathed façade. Composed of four crystalline quadrants, the façade’s multiple panes of glass are slightly angled away from one another to refract sunlight during the day and transform the tower into an illuminated beacon at night. The tower received LEED Gold certification and offers an on-site garage and 75,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor amenities.
We are honored to be recipients of the LA Business Journal‘s Commercial Real Estate Awards and wholeheartedly thank the construction community for the continuous support and trust they have placed in The Conco Companies. Finally we wish to congratulate our LA Federal Courthouse and Ten Thousand Apartment Tower teams for their hard work and commitment to these projects. These awards are for all of you – Great job!
