ARCO/Murray is a national design-build general contractor specializing in industrial construction, with a specific team focused on the corrugated industry. We work with companies who want to build, grow, or renovate/retool their facilities but without the headache that comes with a typical construction project. Established in 1992 on the core principle that the construction process should be enjoyable, ARCO has grown into a robust $7.4 billion enterprise with offices in 38 major markets across North America.
What we do:
From building expansions and renovations to custom build-to-suit facilities, we specialize in bringing complex projects to life. Our engineers, project managers, superintendents, architects, and designers have successfully completed over 5,500 design-build projects and have experience building box plants and sheet plants. We seamlessly integrate the strength and reach of a national builder with the personalized attention of a small company.
How we do it:
Our true design-build approach means we have the in-house resources to ensure the success of your project. From architecture and civil to structural, process mechanical, and MEP, our engineers understand the unique demands of corrugated box plants, sheet plants, sheet feeders, and folding carton facilities. Our design and construction teams work together to streamline the process and reduce iterations and back and forth. The unique combination of in-house resources, industry expertise, and experience ensures our clients receive an upfront budget commitment, streamlined communication through a single point of contact, and faster project delivery.
How you benefit:
We have an in-depth understanding of corrugated facilities and their unique requirements. Our design-build approach includes end-to-end project management, resulting in several key benefits:
Substantial time and schedule savings: ARCO’s internal design services allow for design, buyout, and construction to occur simultaneously, saving valuable time on the overall project schedule.
Early financial risk transfer: ARCO takes on the financial risk in a project’s earliest stages. As soon as our firm-price proposal is accepted, pricing is locked in.
Work with a single entity who is accountable and understands your business: We take ownership of design, construction, equipment vendor coordination, and municipality/regulatory communication—eliminating headaches, cost overruns, scope gaps, and finger-pointing.
From concept to completion, ARCO’s design-build process ensures you receive the most functional and cost-effective facility.
