20 PROJECTS UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN 2020
Utilizing a tried and true design/build methodology, we proudly brought our clients’ visions to life on projects across industry types coast to coast in 2020. From a processing facility with state-of-the-art automated technology for the nation’s largest pizza chain to project-saving value engineering solutions for a senior living facility, ARCO took on even the most complex projects, providing clients with cost-saving solutions and the very best customer experience. We attribute this year of superbly built facilities to the expertise of our staff, our ability to fully comprehend project scope and a steadfast dedication to safety, quality, value, and schedule.
Below are just 20 of the projects ARCO worked on in 2020. From distribution and food grade facilities to state-of-the-art senior living and everything in-between, ARCO is proud to have worked on these projects for our Raving Fans!
59,870 SF Cold Storage & Processing Facility | Katy, Texas
If you’ve ever tried Domino’s handmade pan pizza, you know why we are so thrilled to partner with them as they continue to build their supply chain in Katy, Texas and deliver even more buttery crust to homes nationwide.

198,000 SF, 5-Story Independent Senior Living Facility | Cary, North Carolina
Before ARCO got involved, Shelbourne Healthcare nearly cancelled this 198,000 SF, 5-Story Independent Senior Living project due to an unworkable proforma from a 37% pricing increase from design development to construction documents with the original contractor. The ARCO Living Group team brought the project back to life by engaging a new architect and structural engineer to redesign the building to the owner and operator’s needs, reducing the budget by over $8.5M. We look forward to the successful completion of this project in 2021!
CONFIDENTIAL E-COMMERCE CLIENT
5 Million+ SF | Multiple Locations
As e-commerce continued to grow at a staggering rate in 2020, the demand for logistics real estate followed suit.

Online retailers led the way in the fight for last mile delivery space as they rapidly expanded their infrastructure in order to meet consumers’ next-day delivery expectations. With 13 projects under construction in 2020 and more beginning in 2021, we are proud to partner with this confidential e-commerce client as they continue to grow their business.
