ARCO COMPLETES NEW ENGLAND DISTRIBUTION FACILITY WITHIN SIX-MONTH SCHEDULE
ARCO’s New England office recently completed a 234,000 SF distribution facility for repeat client, Griffin Industrial Realty. Located in Windsor, Connecticut, the new facility will serve as an auto component distribution center for Ford Motor Company.
Despite an accelerated schedule of just six months, ARCO delivered the project on time and on budget thanks to our tried and true design/build methodology and team of industry experts. Our dedication to due diligence allowed for design and construction processes to overlap, as well as potentially unforeseen issues to be addressed early on. ARCO’s New England team is proud to have provided Griffin Industrial Realty with a superior facility for their client, as well as the very best customer experience.
From the Client:
“Our company is a commercial real estate developer that has earned a reputation in our industry for providing a high-quality building. We create a basis of design specification and solicit competitive bids on the building that we are proposing to construct. We rely on the contractors that we invite to provide us with the most cost-effective way to arrive at our goal. ARCO’s proposal left no unanswered questions. It not only was the most competitive, it was the most detailed which provided an immediate comfort level of knowing exactly what we were going to get. The building that we needed to construct also had a very aggressive schedule as our client, Ford Motor Company, required occupancy within 6 months from the start of construction. This meant producing project drawings and working through many tenant requirements, requiring the ARCO team to provide prompt information. Their attention to detail and knowledge allowed us to minimize the upfront work and deliver a building on time. In an ever challenging construction industry, the ARCO team performed second to none, and I would highly recommend them for any project.”
