Welcome Jon & John!

By | News | No Comments

ARCO Design/Build NE would like to welcome John Neal and Jon Zuk to the team. Both will be leading major projects as the newest PMs. Welcome aboard, we are excited to have you!

 

John Neal

Earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management at Boise State University

I chose ARCO because of the unique atmosphere geared towards growing relationships not only within the company’s internal network but with everyone whom the company works with.  This “work hard play hard” atmosphere is something I truly see being successful in not only starting, but keeping relationships and has been a moto I have lived by my whole life. I also chose ARCO because of the opportunity to run your own projects in what could be less then a year. This says a lot about a companies trust in its employees as well as the employees opportunity to expedite growth within the company.

I look forward to having the opportunity to take on a vast amount of responsibility right from the beginning and a chance to grow at the pace I set. With past companies I have been handcuffed so to speak and forced to follow a strict growth process on the company’s own timeline which I felt was just a little too slow for what I want to accomplish. I look forward to gaining irreplaceable knowledge of the Design/Build world which to date I have had little experience in.

Jon Zuk

I received my M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Penn State.

I chose ARCO because it embraces a unique and exciting company structure that rewards hard work and success and provides an environment of entrepreneurship and career growth.

I look forward to the opportunity to learn from the very talented people that I am surrounded by so I can become the best project manager I can be.

Project Spotlight-Exeter Bordentown

By | News | No Comments

This 213,000 SF Facility sits within a Three (3) – Building Campus on Bordentown-Hedding Road, NJ.  Initially designed as a Spec Warehouse, Exeter has recently leased the full-building to Owens & Minor (A pharmaceutical supply company).  The building’s façade glorifies the traditional color scheme of Exeter Property Group – Analytical Gray, Wool skein, and Torchlight.  The building is now a conditioned space with 10 RTU’s spaced throughout the warehouse, and the original lighting scheme has been replaced with high-bay LED lights.  The roof system consists of fully adhered R-30 insulation meeting the current energy code, with perimeter wall insulation (floor to deck).  A hydraulically calculated ESFR fire sprinkler system meeting NFPA Standards is provided, with a 2,000 Amp Electrical service supporting the facility.  There are currently Twenty-eight dock positions with 35,000# mechanical levelers, dock seals, dock lights, and smart chock dock system.  Floor joint caulking is included throughout the warehouse, and an epoxy floor for 25 battery charge stations is included for the tenant. Currently, there is a small 2,500 SF warehouse office to occupy Owens & Minor until a 8,000 SF Two-story main office space is building in the Spring of 2017!

Projects Underway- NFI QPSI

By | News | No Comments

NFI-QPSI BTS
The NFI QPSI BTS project in Florence, NJ is a 342,720SF facility for packaging and distribution for QPSI. The building is being constructed with 37,320 SF of mezzanine in the end bays for future office expansion, as well as over 8,000 SF of curtain wall to give the building a very unique entrance feature. Over 3 miles of underground conduit has been installed for QPSI’s current and future electrical needs throughout the building. The electric service to the building is primary power, and the infrastructure is in place for up to a 6,000A service. The building is a fully conditioned warehouse and has been constructed with an additional 5 pound load factored into the roof structure for future solar. The floor is a 6” slab with dowel baskets and joint filler at every control joint in the facility. QPSI was fortunate enough to receive funding from the GROW NJ program, and with that, the project is prevailing rate and complies with all NJEDA requirements.

The ARCO DBNE team is proud to recognize our 2016  summer interns!   Our interns have been working diligently with our project managers gaining experience in project management, construction scheduling, cost estimating, subcontractor coordination, design review and proposal coordination.  They have become an integral part of the design/build process.

Here at ARCO, we provide a challenging and rewarding atmosphere for highly motivated individuals, looking to go above and beyond. If you are interested in employment opportunities with ARCO, visit our career page!

  • What is something we can learn from you? Ultimately I am here to learn from all of you, but if you would like to polish up your midrange jump shot I might be your guy.
  • Why you are happy to bleed ARCO blue: I have been following ARCO ever since my freshman year when Jim Wyatt came to speak in one of our professional development classes. I was intrigued by the design/build process and wanted to be a part of it because it seemed like the best way to learn all facets of the construction process.
