Conco Receives Pollution Prevention Awards - The Conco CompaniesConco’s Martinez facility was honored by Central Contra Costa Sanitary District with an annual Pollution Prevention Award. The award recognizes local businesses that go above and beyond in their pollution prevention and environmental protection practices.

Some of the practices that Conco has adopted in our Martinez facility include using recycled water to wash trucks, pretreating water before it enters the storm drain through an innovative sand-oil interceptor and installation of a new sawdust collector, and installing solar panels and LED lights to reduce the electrical usage of the facility.

We at Conco are honored to receive this award and are committed to reducing the impact of our facilities on the environment. As technologies evolve, it is our goal to continue to invest in projects like these that make not only good business sense but also generate positive environmental results.


We are proud to report that a few years after The Conco Companies expanded our pumping services in the San Diego area; we have experienced a rapid growth in business. Moreover we attribute much of our San Diego success to the hiring of Eric Brogren, who brings to Conco more than 25 years of experience in the area’s construction industry.

Eric started his career as a pump operator and went on to spend the last several years in pumping sales for the San Diego market. Since bringing Eric on board in February of 2014, Conco has opened a permanent yard in Escondido that houses our fleet of concrete pumps and operators and we are expanding operations.  With the addition of several new pumping contracts already on our schedule for 2017, we are increasing our resources to ensure optimal services to meet the needs of our customers.

One of our new projects includes the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project which will extend Trolley service from the Santa Fe Depot in Downtown San Diego to the University City community. The light rail project is being constructed by the Mid-Coast Transit Constructors (MCTC), which is a fully integrated joint venture of Stacy and Witbeck, Herzog and Skanska. The group was awarded a $921.8 million construction manager/general contractor contract from the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG). Conco Pumping is providing concrete pumping services under the direction of Malcolm Drilling, Condon-Johnson and Skanska.

The Mid-Coast Trolley will serve major activity centers such as Old Town, the University of California San Diego (UCSD), and Westfield UTC and is intended to improve travel options for residents, commuters, and visitors to jobs, schools, and our medical and retail centers. The project is expected to be completed in 2021.

At The Conco Companies, we are one of the leading concrete contractors in the Western U.S. and offer a wide range of quality services and products. Our experience includes providing services for commercial, educational, parking and other construction development as well as public works projects. We serve California, Washington State, Oregon, Colorado and Nevada.


Another new project for The Conco Companies is providing concrete pumps for the Miramar Water Treatment Plant in the City of San Diego. The Miramar Water Treatment Plant was originally constructed in 1962 and provides drinking water to an estimated 500,000 customers in the northern section of San Diego. The approximately $89 million project was started in June 2016 and is expected to be completed by May 2020.

Shimmick is the general contractor for the Miramar Clearwell Improvement Project, which is located on the plant site and includes multiple scopes of work such as the replacement of the Clearwells #1 and #2 built in 1959 and 1974 respectively. The clearwells provide storage of treated water prior to distribution into the potable water supply system. The project started with the demolition of the existing clearwells and the associated piping and facilities, and includes the construction of new clearwells and piping, etc. The plant says the new clearwells will increase their storage capacity by approximately 58 million gallons.

The project also includes a new Chlorine Contact Chamber and an adjoining lift station as well as a new maintenance and operation building and a security guard shack. There will also be other upgrades to the site. Conco’s duties entail providing concrete pumping services for the project.

The Miramar Clearwell Improvements Project is considered to be a critical infrastructure improvement for the City of San Diego and will help to maintain a safe and reliable water supply to the community. Conco is proud to bring our expertise to such an important project. Please visit the project page on our website to see a portfolio of many of our other projects throughout the Western United States.

Conco’s mission is to be the best supplier of concrete services in the Western United States and to bring expertise, experience and quality to each project. We continue to upgrade and expand facilities to better serve the growing market for public works projects, commercial, parking structures, educational, and other construction development.
