Village at Totem Lake Rendering - Conco Companies

The Conco Companies is providing a full range of concrete services on “Building C,” a part of the Village at Totem Lake redevelopment project in Kirkland, WA. The development company is CenterCal Properties LLC, who describes the project as “a lifestyle center with a village feel.” The General Contractor is Venture GC, the architect is GBD Architects and the structural engineer is DCI Engineers. Building C, a turnkey concrete package, is Phase II of the project: a 265,000 square foot building that will offer street-level retail and restaurant space as well as upper-level residential units.

Conco’s job responsibilities include providing concrete pumping, reinforcement, formwork, and finishing services along with professional construction hauling services. We started work this August and expect to be finished in about 10 months. One particular challenge of the project is that the construction site is right next to an active shopping mall. Therefore, we are carefully planning before we bring in the multiple placing booms the job requires.

The redevelopment project is a welcomed improvement to the area as the original Totem Lake Mall, built in 1973, was outdated and in varying states of neglect and vacancies. In fact, a Puget Sound Business Journal article from 2015 noted that the original Totem Lake Mall could be considered “the most tired-looking big property in Kirkland.”

The Village at Totem Lake development is expected to be finished by the end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019 and will include a park, retail shops, restaurants, 850 high-end apartments, and a state-of-the-art luxury movie theater. The mall already has commitments from two tenants, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, both of which are located in Phase I and are scheduled to open in the fall of 2017.

The Conco Companies are a leading supplier of concrete services for the Western U.S. We got our start in the Bay Area in 1959 by offering clients the best value on a wide range of concrete services and products. Since that time, we have taken a leading role as one of the top concrete contractors in the region. We have four regional offices serving California, Nevada, Washington, Oregon and Colorado.


Tacoma Convention Center Hotel Rendering - Conco Companies

The Conco Companies will begin work on the new Tacoma Convention Center Hotel in August and we expect our part of the project to take approximately 17 months to complete. The $20 million mixed-use high-rise is located on a Tacoma City-owned site that adjoins the Greater Tacoma Trade and Convention Center and will include condominium and retail space in addition to a 300-room Marriott Hotel. The development company is Yareton Investment & Management LLC and the General Contractor is Absher. Ankrom Moisan Architects, Inc. is the architect and the structural engineer is PCS Structural Solutions.

Conco’s range of services will include concrete pumping, reinforcement, formwork, shotcrete, and finishing. Since the new hotel connects to the existing Convention Center and is an active site, one of our challenges involves safely and efficiently setting up the several placing booms that are required for the job. Our crew will also use a self-climbing core form system provided by FCI that allows us to increase productivity and meet tight timelines.

As the project will be the largest one in the city, Conco was selected for the job due to our extensive portfolio and experience with very large projects as well as our ability to handle an aggressive schedule. Moreover one of our first projects in the Northwest was for the Tacoma Marriott Hotel in 2004, which is located across the street from the new job site.

Designed to enhance the conference amenities currently available in the city, the new Convention Center Hotel includes a 10,000 sq. ft. grand ballroom as well as 9,000 sq. ft. of other function rooms within the hotel. A grand promenade will connect the new building to the Tacoma Convention Center and offers regional views of the area including Mt. Rainer. Scheduled to open in the summer of 2019, the tower will be the second tallest building in the city.

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, Oregon, Colorado, and Nevada.


Update on 970 Denny

The Conco Companies is providing a wide range of concrete services for 970 Denny, a 40-story apartment building currently under construction in the South Lake Union neighborhood in Seattle, Washington. To date, we recently completed placing the Level 20 deck.

970 Denny Update - The Conco Companies

As of June 16, 2017, core and columns are being placed concurrent with deck (i.e., levels 19-20). We are operating on a five-day deck cycle, with 11 consecutive five-day cycles completed. We anticipate completing Level 40 by mid-November, R1 by Thanksgiving and topping out at R4 the first week of January 2018. Total concrete placed to date is just over 24K.

Along with placing each deck floor, we are concurrently constructing the core and columns with 386 steel fiber-reinforced concrete (SFRC) coupling beams to ensure the utmost safety in the quake-prone area. Our crew is busy executing five-day deck cycles and has already completed 11 consecutive cycles. Maintaining this schedule, we anticipate we will complete Level 40 by mid-November, R1 by Thanksgiving, and topping out the project at R4 by the first week in January, 2018.

The project is being developed by the Holland Partner Group and the general contractor is Holland Construction. The architect, Weber Thompson, describes the mixed-use project as a juxtaposing of a “modern, sleek and sculpted 440’ tall tower with a crisp podium structure that is carefully proportioned to blend with nearby industrial age warehouse structures.” Scheduled for completion by the summer of 2018, the building expects to receive LEED Silver certification.  

Update on Southport on Lake Washington

Another project Conco has been working on in nearby Renton, WA is the Southport on Lake Washington parking structure. This is our biggest Northwest project to date and we have already placed more than 40,000 cubic yards of concrete, which is just a little over half of the total amount of concrete we will use to complete the project.

Update - Southport on Lake Washington - The Conco Companies

We have placed over 40,000cy of concrete, and are just over 50% complete with total yardage poured on this project. To help reduce noise pollution in a residential area, we are using the Putzmeister 14000E high pressure trailer pump.

Furthermore, as the project is in the middle of a residential neighborhood, Conco is using our Putzmeister 14000E high pressure electric pump station to help reduce noise pollution. We are also using the efficient, lightweight Titan #6 pole shores for the high-bay decks. This is only the second project in the Northwest area that has used the Titan system for high shoring conditions. The structure’s design also includes 24-foot tall, single lift, round architectural columns.

We are proud to report that the Southport jobsite has been recognized by both the project owners and the GC for exceptional cleanliness and organization. Conco is also pleased to report that we have implemented our “top down and bottom up” innovative safety procedures that have resulted in a 6-month, injury-free 2017.

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. We serve California, Washington State, Oregon, Colorado and Nevada.

The Conco Companies is providing concrete services for the parking structure and office space at Southport on Lake Washington adjacent to the Hyatt Regency Lake Washington at Southport hotel. Situated on the south shore of Lake Washington, the waterfront property is a mixed-use development that will consist of the three, 9-story buildings totaling 728,769 square feet of Class “A” office space and the 347-room hotel. The new construction is in addition to the 383-units of luxury, multifamily housing that was completed in 2008.

Conco Companies - Southport Parking and Office Space on Lake WashingtonOff-site road improvements and utility work began in January of 2015, and construction started in January 2016. Office space will be available for occupancy in 2018. The project is being developed by the Washington based company, SECO Development, INC. Project’s architect is ZGF Architects LLP, a design firm that focuses on architecture, interior design, and urban design. The general contractor is Exxel Pacific, a leading West Coast commercial construction company.

The parking structure for the hotel and office towers will provide approximately 2,120 structured parking spaces to give the complex a parking ratio of 2.7/1,000 usable square feet. Each of the buildings will have dedicated access to the parking structure from the podium lobbies.

The Southport development is in Renton, Washington, and is strategically positioned between Seattle and Bellevue as well as centrally located to the area’s largest high-tech employers in Greater Seattle. It offers direct access to Interstate 405, and is minutes away from the I-5, I-90 and SR-900. Furthermore, the Seattle International Airport is just a quick 10-minute drive. Once the project is complete, it will feature four restaurants and first floor retail space and is within walking distance of an additional 31 restaurants and 43 retail shops.
