Owens & Minor


ARCO provided core and shell building design, design assistance on the interior improvements, and construction services for a 213,000 SF filling facility, distribution center, and class A office & warehouse office.

The ARCO Team was challenged to develop a plan to accommodate a complex packaging & shipping conveyor system, while constructing the facility through the winter in 4 months total time.

ARCO produced original construction packages to easily coordinate future changes/add-ons requested by Owens & Minor to allow for a compliant packaging unit to meet FDA Hospital Acceptance & Occupancy Date. The building was designed to accommodate and support the high volume storage and packing operation utilizing automated conveyor equipment. Creative construction sequencing and the use of temporary construction measures allowed the building ship product by February.

The building area included 200,000 SF of warehouse and distribution, and 13,000 SF of Class A office and call center. A 10,000 SF Mezzanine space was constructed above the main office space.
