A GROWING INDUSTRIAL MARKET

Despite continuing market challenges, the construction industry, and especially industrial development, continues to see dramatic growth. While the onset of heightened demand coincided with the beginning of the pandemic, according to reports from CBRE and other industry experts, growth is not expected to slow down anytime soon.

Industrial construction volumes are at an all-time high, as absorption rates follow suit and end-users, especially major e-commerce players, continue to drive demand for logistics and distribution space. Tenant demand is expected to continue to outpace supply in 2022, as developers continue to invest in industrial assets, with more than half being speculative developments.

As the number one builder of distribution and warehouse space in the U.S., ARCO has completed hundreds of industrial projects coast to coast. With more than 75% of annual revenue attributed to repeat clientele, now more than ever, our developer and end-user clients are counting on ARCO’s experience and expertise as they expand their distribution networks in Ohio and nationwide.

BUDGET
6% less total cost

ARCO’s extensive preconstruction services address the crucial elements of a project in its earliest stages, allowing for decisions to be made with full knowledge of their impact on cost, schedule, and scope. Our unique design-build process removes the risk of overspending on design and construction by providing clients with a firm price proposal and yields an average overall delivery speed 33% faster than that of traditional plan-and-spec construction.

Additionally, ARCO’s design-build approach is unique in that we spend time up front completing preliminary design and soliciting subcontractor feedback to provide a firm, lump sum proposal for our best solution. This is done before any design dollars are spent, transferring the financial risk of the construction project away from the client and entirely to ARCO.
