A Leading Pittsburgh Construction Company
THE ARCO PITTSBURGH DESIGN-BUILD DIFFERENCE
Whether it’s a coat drive or an enterprise-wide fundraising campaign for cancer research, ARCO provides associates with easy and fun ways to support the Pittsburgh community. ARCO also encourages associates to get involved with the charities of their choice by offering five days of paid leave each year to perform volunteer work and through a dollar-for-dollar matching gift program.
Driven by rapid e-commerce growth, the Pittsburgh 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.
As the number one builder of distribution and warehouse space in the U.S., ARCO has completed hundreds of industrial projects coast to coast. With more than 75% of annual revenue attributed to repeat clientele, developer and end-user clients count on ARCO’s experience and expertise as they expand their distribution networks throughout the Northeast and nationwide.
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.
