INDUSTRY TRENDS
CALIFORNIA DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION TRENDS

While demand for industrial and distribution space is not expected to match the record-setting highs seen over the past two years, vacancy rates are expected to remain low. Major players with financing ability will most likely remain active to keep up with steady consumer spending and in preparation for economic recovery. Demand will largely be driven by e-commerce, third-party logistics and parcel delivery, and large traditional retail users looking to expand their distribution networks nationwide.

As the nation’s largest builder of distribution and warehouse space, ARCO offers the experience and expertise needed for a seamless design and construction process. Our design-build delivery method addresses ongoing market challenges through integrated design and construction solutions that allow for early material procurement resulting in reduced risk and shorter project durations.

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.

Contact us today to learn more about how we can provide creative solutions and alternatives to make your construction project feasible, regardless of complexity or scale.
