ARCO/Murray recently began construction on an 82,750 square-foot healthcare laundry build-out for Handcraft Services in High Point, North Carolina. The project includes 75,250 square-feet of production space including mechanical room, maintenance shop, and soil/clean docks, and 7,500 square-feet of office including an employee break room and production restrooms. Construction began in mid-March and will finish at the end of August. This is the third time HandCraft Services has partnered with ARCO/Murray to build a new laundry facility.
The shell building was under construction when ARCO/Murray started the project. By coordinating the laundry design with the building developer, ARCO was able to compress the project schedule and reduce the overall construction costs. Design changes included additional roof loading in lieu of floor supports for the rail system, coordinating floor trenches and pits with the floor slab design, natural gas and electrical upgrades, and improvements to lighting, spot cooling and plant ventilation. ARCO/Murray is providing a complete design/build solution including architectural and engineering design, permitting, and all construction work to convert the existing building into a new healthcare laundry. This includes equipment rigging, installation and final utility connections.
Dylan Scarpato is serving as project manager and Nate Smith is the project superintendent.
