Get to know ARCO DBI.
Our goal is the same today as it was when we founded the company 29 years ago—to be the very best design/build contractor in the industry. Since 1992, ARCO has grown from a single office in St. Louis to an industry leader with 29 offices and hundreds of associates from coast to coast. With more than 4,000 successful projects in 450 cities in our portfolio, we have developed the industry specific expertise it takes to provide the best, most cost effective, single source solutions. ARCO offers the strength and presence of a national builder with the personalized attention of a small company.
Leading this group has been the most rewarding challenge; together we share the same passion and goal of turning our customers into Raving Fans."Robert Steigerwald | CEO
We make the construction process enjoyable for associates and customers.
We strive to create "Raving Fan" customers.
- Treat people fairly and do the right thing.
- Understand our customer’s business and solve their problems.
- Be positive, upbeat and have fun.
- Create opportunities for individual financial success based on merit.
Life is all about balance.
At ARCO, our associates are our greatest asset and we treat them that way. Our work hard, play hard culture is not only award-winning, it’s a vital part of our success. ARCO is dedicated to creating a workplace in which associates feel valued and empowered to succeed.
Being a leader in the design/build construction industry is hard work, but we make sure it’s also a lot of fun. From a quick round of ping pong, to a group happy hour, to giving back to the community through philanthropic efforts, we believe part of supporting each other is spending quality time together.
Our sabbatical program.
Part of attracting and retaining the best talent in the design/build construction industry is treating them like they are the best talent. Our sabbatical program is designed to reward our associates for all of their hard work and dedication. For every five years of employment, they receive a 30-day sabbatical in addition to their vacation time for the year. We also provide a travel stipend to ensure their experience is as enjoyable and inspiring as possible.
We believe in making a difference together.
Each year, ARCO Charity Trust (A.C.T.) hosts a golf outing benefiting Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Northern Delaware and Susquehanna Valley. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses. We look forward to helping Make-A-Wish grant even more wishes to these amazing, strong children!
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
An extremely important annual holiday tradition for us is raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Each year, we come together to see how much of a donation we can contribute as a group. We are proud to support such an incredible cause that provides care, treatment, and research for children with life-threatening diseases.
Award winning culture.
ARCO is proud to have been recognized for our commitment to a fantastic workplace culture, a quality design/build process and outstanding growth.
