The highly competitive California market demands the most innovative overall solution for success.

Because we utilize a design-build method that focuses on comprehensive due diligence, ARCO can act aggressively and serve as a partner to clients from project concept to completion. Having successfully constructed highly challenging projects for some of our largest clients, the ARCO Pacific Coast team is expertly capable of providing value-engineered solutions for a variety of facility and site-specific challenges such as those outlined in the following case study.

MARKET CHANGES OVERCOME WITH DESIGN-BUILD RETROFIT SOLUTIONS
As material and equipment pricing throughout the construction industry continues to rise at an unpredictable pace and supply chain interruptions remain, many companies that have seen consumer behavior-driven success and an increase in revenue are unable to add new facilities or expand existing assets.
By choosing to retrofit an existing facility, California owners can reap the benefits of design-build, firm lump sum construction pricing regardless of market volatility. ARCO is able to complete preliminary design during the proposal process, and the owner benefits now more than ever from the speed at which design-build delivery moves.
Our work in the proposal phase enables us to move quickly through the design and buyout phases to secure material pricing once a project is awarded. In normal circumstances, this is extremely beneficial for owners, but is now critical to overcome supply and demand disruptions.
ARCO’s extensive retrofit expertise in the California market, as well as nationwide, spans all industry types, including cold storage and food processing, hazardous storage, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, and cleanroom and laboratories.

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.
ARCO is recognized by Engineering News-Record as the #1 largest domestic builder of distribution and warehouse facilities in the United States, having built 47.4 million square feet worth $1.7 billion of industrial space for clients nationwide in 2020 alone.
