Conco Drone Highlights

Bill Ramsey



The Conco Drone Program continues to grow and expand. Our team is finding new and innovative ways to use our drone to enhance our operations. While on many job sites they also capture unique photos from the air of our projects. Check out these pictures of current and recently completed projects:




Project Update: Viega ProPress II Metal Fittings Expansion

Rachel Hauber


It’s been a busy month so far at our Viega project in McPherson! It’s not every day we have a 900 ton crane on site like we did last week to set all of the rooftop units on the ProPress II building. The crane was so large it took 26 truckloads to haul the parts in to assemble it and once complete it could be seen from 5 miles away!

Our crews are making great progress and should have the building enclosed by next week. We’ve been fortunate to have good December weather that helped us in completing Viega Avenue, the main entrance to the Viega complex. We are looking forward to planning an additional logistics building and will keep you updated on our progress!


Project Kickoff: Central Community Church Chapel

Rachel Hauber

Our crews started work on the Chapel at Central Community Church last week! This project is the first phase of the future Central Landing community planned for the church. Conco has worked with SPT Architecture and the church for many months to plan and design this project and everyone is excited to see demolition begin and construction to follow. By this time next year the church will have a new chapel venue to celebrate weddings and special events!


Project Kickoff: Botanica Carousel

Rachel Hauber

We are thrilled to share we recently celebrated the groundbreaking for the Botanica Carousel project! Many of you may remember the historic carousel that used to be a fan favorite at Joyland. Its owner generously donated the merry-go-round, which is one of only five remaining Allan Herschell Carousels in the world, and it will be housed in a pavilion within the Botanica grounds. We will keep you updated as work progresses on this special project!


Project Spotlight: Uptown Landing

Rachel Hauber

We are excited to share that the Uptown Landing project recently completed and is now in the leasing phase. The project was a great success and utilized all of Conco’s self-peforming trades at some point in the project. We are currently finishing out the Vora Restaurant space on the corner and expect to be starting some other tenant improvements in the first floor commercial space soon!


Project Update: William Newton Memorial Hospital Phase I

Rachel Hauber


It’s been a little over a month since we celebrated the groundbreaking of the William Newton Memorial Hospital Surgical Expansion in Winfield. Our crews have been hard at work since and have begun demolition work in offices on the 2nd floor and will begin reconstructing the space for a new pharmacy. Outside, our dirtwork crews have begun excavation for the new Central Storage addition. We’re thrilled to have started this new project and will keep you updated as work progresses!


Project Update: ICM Cooling Tower Concrete

Rachel Hauber


Our crews continue work on concrete footings and foundations for the ICM expansion in Colwich, Kansas. The expansion includes work for the bio-fuels refinery which will be one of the few refineries built in recent years. Most of our work should be finished in the next few months so stay tuned and we’ll be back with more pictures once we’re complete!


Project Spotlight: Cowley College Sumner Campus Technology & Innovation Center

Rachel Hauber


We are so excited to share the completion of the Technology and Innovation Center at Cowley College’s new Sumner Campus! This campus has been a long-time goal for the school and we’re honored to be a part of helping them bring higher education to the Wellington Community. The Technology and Innovation Center is a pre-engineered metal building that houses classrooms and an IT Lab. Just to the north of it is the Short General Education Center we are working on that will open in the fall of 2019 where the campus’ bookstore, community center room and administrative offices will be.



Project Update: Winfield Rotary Stage and Island Park

Rachel Hauber


Back in May we first shared that we had broke ground on the Winfield Rotary Stage and Island Park. It’s now been a little over a month and look at the amazing progress our talented crews have made! Our guys are continuing work on the stone walls at the pavilion and they recently finished erecting the structure, which features 2×8 tongue and groove decking over curved structural beams.


Conco was asked to partner with the Winfield Rotary to make this project become a reality. We’ll share more pictures once the project is finished and keep everyone in the loop regarding concerts and events. Our work in Winfield and Cowley County dates back to the 1970s. We’re proud of our history in the region and are excited to add this project to the list!


Project Kickoff: WAA Terminal Deconstruction

Rachel Hauber

Our crews recently started the process of deconstructing the old terminal building at Dwight D. Eisenhower Airport. This project will be unique because it is a mix of deconstruction, demolition, addition and renovation. The first phase includes rerouting hydronic piping, relocating a 15 foot tall Magic Flight Sculpture and relocating the airport’s main data room to another facility. Work is underway and we will keep everyone updated on our progress!
