Indianapolis’ continued growth in the light industrial construction industry has necessitated the move to a new office location. The Indianapolis office was established as an extension of the award-winning national design-build firm ARCO.
“We’re extremely proud of our growth as a company that’s based in the Midwest but services clients nationally,” adds Ben Titus, CEO and President of ARCO Indianapolis. “Focusing on our design-build delivery has grown our business from a traditional industrial box builder to our delivery of pharmaceuticals, life sciences and manufacturing facilities. Today, we are the design-build contractor of choice in Indianapolis, and we are known across the nation as an industry leader.”
ARCO’s specialty in light industrial and commercial design-build construction projects supports a variety of industries including speculative development, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, distribution centers, and cold and dry storage facilities. ARCO’s Indianapolis office has seen steady growth due to the value of their design-build delivery method.
“Our growth has been reflective of us standing by our philosophy on the design-build approach and the value we want to give our customers,” said Landon Paddock, Vice President of ARCO Design/Build Indianapolis. “It’s been a testament to our steady growth. If we wanted to be a plan-spec-build contractor like others in the city, we could do larger volume, but at that point, we’d just be another general contractor. Instead, we want to always be a strategic member of the team that adds value to the process while bringing new solutions and perspectives to projects so that our clients’ needs are met.”
The growth of the Indianapolis office is the successful extension of ARCO’s national network of design-build offices named #7 on ENR’s 2019 list of design-build contractors. ENR recently ranked ARCO as the #1 builder of Distribution Centers and Warehouses in the nation.
“ARCO Design/Build has 26 offices, with Indianapolis being one of them. We are able to bring in a tremendous amount of knowledge from around the U.S, and that is a huge advantage to our clients and end-users. No other contractor in Indianapolis has quite the reach we do. We are able to leverage our national presence for our clients, while providing them the personalized attention of a small company,” said Paddock.
In 2020, ARCO Indianapolis was awarded and named the #3 Best Places to Work by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce in the large category. The team also moved into a new office space that features contemporary design and décor including a breakroom encouraging their motto of “Work Hard. Play Hard,” with beer taps and ping-pong tables available for associates.
“It’s nice to have a place to call home for our associates that allows us to work cohesively as a team, while giving us more room for growth as we continue to make our mark here in Indianapolis,” said Titus.
