The Conco Companies is providing concrete services on the Alta Burnside project in downtown Portland, Oregon. During construction, services include concrete pumping, reinforcement, formwork, and shotcrete.
Located at 1638 W Burnside St, this 154,480 sq foot mixed-use building is being constructed by Pavilion Construction under the direction of Wood Partners. Alta Burnside includes 6,000 square feet of retail on the first floor, 138 residential units, and an underground parking garage. Add the wraparound terrace to its predominantly glass and brick walls, and you will see that this is an impressive building. Best of all, it is in a popular Portland neighborhood near the Providence Park Stadium.
Construction began in July 2018, and presented a unique challenge. The footprint of Alta Burnside was originally occupied by other buildings. Architect Ankrom Moisan had the unique challenge of designing a building to fit into this tight space. Conco, in turn, had to work very carefully with the excavation contractor to ensure scheduling constraints were met.
Conco worked with KPFF Consulting Engineers to select the correct concrete chemistry and specifications during the planning period. As commercial concrete contractors servicing Portland & Southern Washington, Conco is proud to have participated in this urban renewal project.
Conco is one of the foremost suppliers of concrete pumping services for the Western U.S. We got our start in 1959 in the Bay Area by offering clients the best value on a broad range of concrete services and products. Since that time, we have taken a leading role as top concrete contractors in the Western region. We have regional offices serving California, Oregon, Nevada, and Washington.
