Cumulus Tower Project - The Conco Companies

On July 14th, Conco successfully completed over 40,000 square feet of finished slab work for the Cumulus Tower after pouring over 8,000 cubic yards of concrete for the project. This large scale project was first proposed in 2015 and architectural firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz, known for its long history in the residential market, designed this 30-story residential tower. Cumulus Tower will be the first tower in this area of Los Angeles and will be a cornerstone feature of a larger complex that will also include open spaces, offices, and 100,000 square feet of retail, with plans to include a supermarket in the retail space.

Cumulus Tower and the surrounding complex is located in the West Adams neighborhood of Los Angeles and will create 1,210 new apartments. This exciting new development seeks to promote public transit as it provides more housing and retail stores next to new metro rail stations. The Cumulus Tower is located across from the La Cienega / Jefferson station on the Expo light rail line which opened in 2012.

Conco was selected for this large project based on its reputation as the best value in concrete services and its commitment to delivering exceptional quality construction on schedule and budget. This experience was particularly important for the Cumulus Tower as the project requires a fast schedule, that started in June 2018 and will wrap up July 2019. During this timeframe, Conco is providing a range of concrete services including structural concrete forming, structural concrete placement and finishing, pumping, and structural shotcrete services for the project.

The Conco Companies mission is to be the best supplier of concrete services in the Western U.S. and to bring expertise and incomparable quality to each project. We continue to upgrade and expand our facilities to better serve the growing market for commercial, educational, parking structures, public works projects, and other development.

The Conco Companies was awarded structural concrete services for the Riverside County East County Detention Center (ECDC) located in Indio, California. The 516,000 sq. ft. project is a replacement and expansion to the existing Indio Jail Facility and is being constructed in two phases. Phase one consists of a three-story administration and support building and includes an extension of the existing below-grade tunnel. Phase two is a four-story structure consisting of two housing units with 1,626-beds and mezzanine levels. The general contractor for the $330 million project is Clark Construction and the architect is HOK. Saiful Bouquet serves as the project’s structural engineer. The ECDC is expected to be completed in December 2017.

Indio Detention Center - Conco Commercial Concrete

Conco’s responsibilities include supplying and performing services totaling 55,000 cubic yards of concrete, of which thus far, we have completed approximately 14,200 CY. The four-level housing units are stacked in two separate “pods” and will be constructed of cast-in-place concrete as will the support building. Conco is also utilizing our pumps to pour piles 60’ below ground level for Becho, another trade partner.

One of the project’s unique challenges is that the temperatures in Indio average 89°F and summer highs can reach 120°F. To address this problem, we have a full-time safety manager on site and all Conco employees and Conco subcontracted employees are adhering to the full ACI’s (American Concrete Institute) Hot Weather Concreting procedures.

Aesthetically pleasing, the modern detention center will replace an overpopulated, 353-bed jail facility that was built in the 1950s. HOK has incorporated sustainable, energy-saving designs into the facility, which is targeting LEED Silver certification. The goal of the new Center’s design is to provide non-institutional, humane environments and maximizes the access to natural light, fresh air and shared spaces.

The Conco Companies is one of the leading concrete contractors in the Western U.S. and offer a wide range of quality services and products. While we tackle projects both big and small, our experience includes providing the complete concrete package for the Levi’s Stadium along with other notable projects. We serve California, Washington State, Oregon, Colorado, and Nevada.
