The Conco Companies are proud to report that one of our recent projects is the Second Place Winner of the American Concrete Institute’s 2017 Excellence in Concrete Construction Awards in the High Rise category. One of only 12 winners internationally, the Premiere on Pine (formerly known as 815 Pine) is a 42-story tower that highlights the structural and technological advancements made in the concrete industry over the last several years.
This year’s winners were recognized at the “Celebrating Concrete Innovation and Excellence Across the Globe” Awards Gala that took place during the ACI Concrete Convention and Exposition. In addition to Conco serving as the concrete contractor for the Premiere on Pine’s project, the team included owner and developer, Holland Partner Group; architect, Weber Thompson Architects; general contractor, Holland construction Inc.; engineering firm, Cary Kopcznyski & Company; and Concrete Supplier, Stoneway Concrete.
The Premiere on Pine is constructed with high-strength concrete and reinforcing steel to create maximum floor space for the small site and is the first building in Seattle to have a specified concrete strength of 15,000 psi in its columns. This allows the high-strength columns to be smaller than those in similarly sized buildings. Another innovation was to place the concrete continuously through the slab penetrations, which eliminated the need for concrete puddling around the columns.
The building is the tallest residential tower in Seattle, WA and offers residents a range of amenities including a hotel-inspired rooftop sky lounge and five levels of above-grade parking and five-levels below. In addition the apartment units offer spectacular views of the Cascades, Puget Sound and downtown Seattle.
Conco was pleased to be selected for this unique, challenging project as well as to be a part of such an exceptional team. We are extremely honored to receive the ACI’s 2017 Excellence in Concrete Construction award.
