ZERO UPFRONT COST DURING CONCEPTUAL DEVELOPMENT
Our expert proposal delivery method is based on zero investment preliminary design, resulting in the best solutions at the lowest overall total project cost.

EARLY FINANCIAL RISK TRANSFER
ARCO takes on the financial risk in a project’s earliest stages – as soon as our firm price proposal is accepted and a procurement letter of intent is executed. Pricing is locked in, and key materials are secured immediately.

SUBSTANTIAL TIME & SCHEDULE SAVINGS
Our internal design services allow for design, buyout, and construction to occur simultaneously, saving valuable time on the overall project schedule.
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
KANSAS CITY DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION TRENDS

Driven by rapid e-commerce growth, the Kansas City industrial construction market continues to see low vacancy rates and high demand. The shift to online shopping sparked by the pandemic has led to major demand for distribution and logistics space as both e-commerce and traditional retailers work to expand their distribution networks nationwide. Further, ongoing supply chain disruptions caused by overwhelmed ports have led to accelerated demand as end-users look to overcome the challenges of just-in-time production networks and mitigate further disruptions by stockpiling input materials and finished goods.

DELIVERY

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.
