ARCO Culture

This industry can demand long hours so it’s important that all of our associates take time to have fun. Here are just a few examples of how we enjoy a healthy work-life balance.

Sabbatical Program

One of the most unique and rewarding perks of working at ARCO Design/Build Northeast is the Sabbatical Program. For every 5-years of employment you receive a 30-day sabbatical in addition to your vacation time for the year. The company also provides a travel stipend. This has opened the door for our employees to experience some once-in-a-lifetime trips.

ARCO Charity Trust

Each year, the office sets a goal of volunteer hours we would like to reach as a team. Giving back to the community is important to our team and we have fun participating and lending a hand where we can.


In celebration of surpassing any yearly goals, the ARCO team will get to spend a weekend away enjoying their hard work. Previous years included trips to Key West and Chesapeake. We like to have a little fun for a job well done!

Client Appreciation

Each time we start a new project, we pick a day to throw a barbeque for the subcontractors and workers on site. Together, we enjoy lunch prepared by ARCO’s finest to thank the subs for their extraordinary efforts.

Every year we hold our annual Elite Project Partners Awards. This event gives our Project Managers and Superintendents the opportunity to recognize the outstanding subcontractors we work with throughout the year. The night is a celebration complete with food, drinks and laughs. Most importantly, it’s a chance for us to thank our subcontractors and give everyone an opportunity to mingle outside of a jobsite.
