DALLAS/FT WORTH - Originally founded in 1992 by Dick Arnoldy and Jeff Cook, ARCO/Murray is a national design build general contractor with over 25 years of experience building all types of facilities. In 2013, Jason McLaughlin established ARCO/Murray in Dallas, TX. Today the Dallas office has 35 employees, specializing in light industrial, manufacturing, cold storage and tenant improvements.



    From planning to execution, the ARCO/Murray team uses the industry’s most advanced methodology to bring their client’s visions to life. Having constructed more than 4,000+ projects in more than 48 states and Canada, they have developed a wealth of knowledge and industry specific expertise. “Our unique approach blends our exceptional team with precise planning and expert execution to deliver the very best client experience. Our promise is to make the construction process enjoyable and beneficial,” says McLaughlin.
    Bedrosians Tile & Stone knew ARCO/Murray was the right choice to construct their new warehouse, office and showroom in Farmers Branch, TX designed by Gensler.
    The new 114,000sf concrete tilt wall facility took the ARCO/Murray team nine short months to construct.
    The building acts as a blend between a warehouse and a retail showroom. The front half of the space houses tile displays and other tile products, while the back half of the space will house granite slab storage and display. The floor is diamond polished and features an average of 100 FC lighting levels throughout making it an enjoyable retail environment.
    There are three 5-ton bridge cranes spanning 250ft of the 550ft long building to move granite slabs around. The structure was designed to be able to easily expand the bridge cranes all the way across the building. The building also features an interior truck dock such that the slabs and other products can be easily loaded onto trucks by the bridge cranes above.
    Project Manager Paul Wagner and Superintendent Bill Beck oversaw the project. The project team maintained open lines of communication with the designer and owners to produce the finished product on time and on budget.
    The team spent a lot of time together evaluating costs and schedule impacts during the design of the facility. As a result, they were able to use real time cost/benefit analysis to enable the owner to create the most cost-effective solution for their long-term business strategy.
