Project Update: Kansas Food Bank

Bill Ramsey

Our crews worked through the frigid temperatures this week to set the tilt-up panels for the Kansas Food Bank project! The project is challenging due to the integration of the structural steel and the tilt-up panels. The steel and panels must be erected in a specific sequence so that the structural integrity is protected. On Tuesday our drone operator was able to catch our teams in action as they placed several of the tilt-up panels. We are excited to see this project progress! The finished building will provide much needed space for the Kansas Food Bank as it continues its mission to provide food for those in need!






Ascension Via Christi: Blessing and Dedication

Bill Ramsey

Conco was honored to be part of the blessing and grand opening of the Ascension/Via Christi Project Renewal at St. Joseph this week. The community came together to celebrate many years of planning, fund raising, construction and training all focused on providing the best behavioral health care in the region. Conco played a significant role in several different aspects of the journey. Recognizing the importance of behavioral and mental health in our community we donated over $80,000 to Project Renewal. We also were the construction manager on two of the major projects; the Psychiatric Observation Unit at St. Joseph and the Behavioral Outpatient Clinic at the Clifton Building. Both projects will allow Ascension/Via Christi to better serve our community! We are thankful for partners like Ascension/Via Christi and the services they provide to our communities and our families!

Botanica Carousel

Work continues on the Botanica Carousel Project here in Wichita! Steel arrived on site early on January 21st and our crews immediately began putting it in the air. The building is octagonal in shape with a compression ring and the top and a tension ring around the perimeter. Our iron work crews have done a fantastic job to date on a tough and unique project! Think about it, how many buildings can you name that are shaped like a stop sign? Check out these pictures:
