The Conco Companies is providing concrete reinforcement and shotcrete placement services for the Westfield Valley Fair Podium and Garage Expansion Project in Santa Clara, CA. The project is being developed by the Century City based owner Westfield Design & Construction and is designed by JPRA Architects. The McCarthy Building Company is the general contractor and Desimone Consulting Engineers is the structural engineer. This is an extremely large project that consists of a multi-faceted open and covered mall expansion of in-line shop spaces for between 70 to 100 stores along with a 150,000 sq. ft. Bloomingdale’s. The project also includes 6-levels of below grade parking with 1,300 stalls and roof-top parking, which will add an additional 567,495 sq. ft. to the already existing structure. The project is located off Stevens Creek Blvd. and N. Winchester Blvd.
Conco’s responsibilities on the project include providing our reinforcement and shotcrete services. During the course of the project, we will provide 15,500,000 pounds of rebar and post tension reinforcement as well as 2,955 cubic yards of shotcrete. The challenges of the Westfield Valley Fair Expansion lie not only in the magnitude of the project but with the aggressive schedule and anticipated shortage of resources. Conco began work on the project in June of 2017 and we will complete our end of the job in July, 2018.
In total the entire Westfield Valley Fair Expansion will encompass 2.2 million square feet and cost an estimated $1.1 billion. Along with the new Bloomingdale’s, the mall will have a high-end theater, a new dining district in the open air promenade and more retail stores. The project is expected to be finished in 2019.
