The punch list was attacked and finished quickly to allow us to use the building efficiently. The turnover of the project was seamless, and was the smoothest transition we’ve had on a Stonecrest project.

ARCO Completes Project for Raving Fan in Republic, MO


ARCO Completes Project for Raving Fan in Republic, MO

ARCO Beverage Group was honored to construct Heart of America Beverage’s new Republic, MO distributorship! After initially enlisting an architect for traditional plan and specification delivery, and receiving budget costs far greater than they anticipated, Harwood Ferguson and the Heart of America Beverage team were amazed at our ability to design and build a better facility at a significantly lower cost. 

From the client

“We recently completed construction on a brand new 150,000 square foot distribution center, designed and built by ARCO. I really can’t say enough about ARCO’s performance on this project, and I would recommend them whole-heartedly to anyone considering a construction project of their own.

ARCO helped us to carefully think through countless decisions with which we would otherwise have struggled. Having completed many similar projects around the country, they were in a position to share with us what they have seen other distributors do, and more importantly, what has worked well and what has not. Now that we have moved in and are fully operational in our new facility, the value of these insights has come into full light. I am entirely confident that this facility is far more functional than it otherwise would have been without ARCO’s involvement.

Another tremendous asset ARCO brought to the table was their ability to control costs. In our case, we had previously engaged the services of an architectural firm to design our building, and had gone on to bid the project out to several general contractors. The projected costs were far higher than we had anticipated. Fortunately some distributor friends of ours suggested that we look into working with ARCO. As it turns out ARCO was able to bring the cost of the project down sharply, while still delivering all of the elements we wanted in our building. In fact, we prefer the design that ARCO came up with over what had previously been designed. In the end we not only saved a tremendous amount of money with ARCO (we actually finished under budget), but we also got the best possible building for our investment.

Timeliness was yet another strength ARCO display in this process. Given the tendency for large construction projects to run late, it is still amazing to me that this was not the case for us. Despite the normal delays that happen with every project, ARCO was able to complete our facility on schedule. For a business like ours that never stops running, this was incredibly valuable.

In short, ARCO was on time, under budget and highly professional. I would recommend them without hesitation, and would welcome questions from any of their prospective clients.”
