ARCO: Design and Build for the Community

October 30, 2023

ARCO has created a work hard, play hard mentality. With the fast-paced, challenging nature of their business, it’s important to celebrate the completion of projects with associates and customers. In the eyes of their clients, they aren’t just a vendor. They are a partner committed to their success. They build the facilities that keep America going. Being able to play a key role in providing significant, measurable value to the partners and communities that they do business in is so rewarding.

ARCO Design/Build is the leading design-build company in the United States. With national reach and local expertise, they’ve simplified industrial construction. With just one design-build construction team, you have one budget, one contract, a single source of accountability and one cohesive project — from design concept to completion of construction.  This design-build approach is what sets them apart from the competition. They offer coordinated building design and construction services, including design-build construction contractor services, architectural design, structural engineering, and concrete services. In these capacities, they deliver the strength, resources and construction expertise of an award-winning national design-build construction company, combined with the responsive personalized customer service you’d expect from your local construction firm. In truth, they are a customer service company that just happens to design and construct buildings. Their philosophy from inception has been that “they win when their clients win,” which contributes to why they are ranked by ENR as the #1 distribution and warehouse builder in the country, the #3 design-build firms in the country, and the #11 contracting firm in the country. 

Their company was founded on the idea of being dedicated to making the construction process enjoyable for their customers and associates. In 1995, ARCO Design/Build was established out of Atlanta, Georgia. They now have over 38 offices nationwide, including their Memphis office which opened in 2020 and is led by Vice President Joel Olson.

They are involved in several chamber organizations in the greater Memphis MSA along with several real estate and economic development organizations.  With the success that their Memphis office has already seen, though, they are relocating to a larger office space to accommodate the needs of an expanding team. This move presents exciting new opportunities to continue to grow with our clients in the years to come and they look forward to adding as much value as they can to the Greater Jackson Chamber and celebrating the wins of the community.
