Lifting Los Angeles to New Heights

On Monday, February 29, 2016, the Conco Companies topped off the core of the Wilshire Grand Center building in downtown Los Angeles.  With over 150,000 cubic yards of concrete poured, and an intensely dedicated crew peaking to over 160 men and women on site, the Conco team has finally reached the milestone to lead the way for the interior finishes.    Read more…

Breaking the Guinness World Record for the Largest Continuous Mat Pour

Starting at 4:47 p.m. on Saturday, February 15, 2014, Conco broke the Guinness World Record for the largest continuous mat pour in 18 ½ hours (1 ½ hours under the projected time).  To verify the event, there was an official Guinness World Records adjudicator on-site.  The mat pour was for the new Wilshire Grand Center that is being constructed in downtown Los Angeles and is slated to become the tallest building in the U.S. west of the Mississippi.  Read more…

Conco’s Thermal Control Plan of the Wilshire Grand Mat Foundation Pour Proves Successful

Conco’s Equipment Met the Tough Challenges of the Wilshire Grand Pour With Flying Colors

To successfully complete the world’s largest continuous mat pour, one of the biggest challenges Conco faced was to find ways to unload 120 – 150 truckloads of concrete per hour. With the need to unload so many trucks in such a short period of time, Conco’s plan called for thirteen points of placement in the mat foundation.  However, only two sides of the project were accessible from the street.  Read more…

Record Setting Event Accomplished Without Injury

While Conco is justifiably proud of breaking the World record for the largest continuous mat pour, we are even more proud of doing it safely.  Our commitment to safety began with the vision from Conco’s Southern California General Manager, Rick Parker.  Five months prior to the pour, he invited John Messing, Conco’s Safety Director, to participate in the planning meetings for the Grand Pour.  Rick has learned from his years of experience that projects go more smoothly when the safety department is involved early-on to ensure that safety is built into the overall work plan.  Read more…
