Project Update – Fidelity Bank RISE: A Beacon of Progress

Rachel Hauber

It’s been an exciting week in downtown Wichita as our tower crane at the Fidelity Bank Car Park arrived! Conco crews prepared the base several weeks ago that contains 16 tons of rebar and 220 yards of concrete. The crane stands 160 feet tall with the jib and counter-jib at 320 feet long. The American and Wichita flags will be hung within the coming weeks, but check out the custom Conco sign that lights up at night. This is the first tower crane in Wichita since the construction of the Hyatt over 20 years ago and we’re thrilled to use it in our partnership with Fidelity Bank!
