ARCO Northwest’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 Seattle area 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.
