ARCO PARTNERS WITH SCANNELL PROPERTIES ON MANUFACTURING FACILITY FOR PLANT PREFAB
ARCO’s Pacific Coast division is thrilled to partner with repeat developer client, Scannell Properties and end-user, Plant Prefab on a 270,000 SF manufacturing facility in Arvin, California! Once complete, the project will serve as Plant Prefab’s first automated facility and regional production hub for its patented, custom-prefabricated panelized and modular building components for multifamily developments and custom single-family homes.
In response to rising demand, the new production facility will greatly increase Plant Prefab’s capacity, producing an anticipated 900,000 SF of living space per year. Situated on 17 acres, the project will expand the company’s service reach to include the entire Western U.S. and will employ up to 440 people.
Additionally, the project reflects Plant Prefab’s commitment to sustainability, as it is being built to the company’s strict environmental standards to minimize energy and water use and to safeguard employee health. Sustainable features include energy-efficient lighting, appliances, and mechanical systems, high-performance windows, and water-efficient fixtures, as well as an extensive solar array that will offset energy consumption.
