SOME OF OUR
RAVING FANS

ARCO builds Raving Fans through high integrity, excellent standards for communication, comprehensive due diligence, superior craftsmanship, and the intent to become our clients' trusted advisers - now and for years to come. As a result, more than 75% of ARCO's annual revenue is attributed to repeat customers.
The project had a very aggressive construction schedule of 6 months, but by working through the design-build approach with ARCO, we were able to finish the project on time and on budget. Throughout the project, ARCO was consistently looking for different value engineering options to save us money. In fact, one of their recommendations saved us $1.5 million on the project.

INDUSTRY TRENDS

A GROWING KANSAS CITY COLD STORAGE CONSTRUCTION MARKET

With more perishable items moving through the supply chain in response to consumer preference changes and the rise of e-grocery, the need for cold storage facilities in strategic markets is on the rise. Kansas City is one of the largest and fastest growing cold storage logistics hubs in the country as its centralized location, low operating costs, infrastructure network, and available speculative space make it especially desirable for our developers and end-users alike. Kansas City offers easy access to five class 1 railroads and four major interstates making it possible to reach up to 85% of the U.S. population in just two days.

With millions of square feet in cold storage construction each year, ARCO’s team of experts understand the unique challenges a freezer/cooler facility presents. ARCO works closely with the design team to effectively analyze these components to reduce exposure and provide the best value to clients.

The traditional speculative development environment is seeing a shift towards outfitting facilities for specialized end-users such as those in the food & beverage industry. Shown here: a 167,565 SF speculative cold storage facility for BCB Development in Kansas City.

THE ARCO ADVANTAGE

ARCO’s project delivery method combines quality of design and construction, management of expense, and adherence to schedule into a single point of responsibility. As a result, our customers reap the benefit of total integration. Our team of design-build construction experts effectively gain an understanding of each client’s business and analyze the key components to reduce exposure and provide the best value to clients.

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.
