The Conco Companies have recently opened a new office in Portland, OR. While not new to the area as we have performed services for Portland from our facilities in Kent, WA, this is our first actual office in the city. The need for the office made sense as we are working on several large projects throughout the city and having a more established presence allows us to better serve our current clients as well as future clients.
One of our new projects is the Modera Glisan, a 12-story mixed-use high-rise that will offer 291 residential units on the upper floors and retail and commercial space at ground level. The project also includes an underground parking garage for approximately 223 vehicles and parking for 445 bicycles. The exterior will be comprised of granite colored brick, metal panels in two colors, glass balcony railings and aluminum storefronts.
Conco will be responsible for providing concrete pumping, reinforcement, formwork, finishing, shotcrete, formwork, and construction trucking. As the job requires an aggressive schedule, we will need to use multiple placing booms.
Another one of our new Portland project is 14 & Glisan, a 16-story high-rise that when finished will have 230 residential units and approximately 4,285 square feet of ground floor retail space. The tower’s exterior includes pre-cast concrete panels, brick veneer, aluminum storefront glazing and a unitized window/wall system. It will also have three levels of below grade parking to accomodate 201 vehicles.
Conco’s duties include concrete pumping, reinforcement, formwork, shotcrete, and finishing as well as construction trucking services. During the course of the project, we will place 16,000 cubic yards of concrete and expect the job to take us approximately 10 months.
The Conco Companies are one of the foremost suppliers of concrete 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 region. We have regional offices serving California, Oregon, Nevada, Colorado and Washington.
