ARCO/Murray Receives General Contractor of the Year Award at RE Journals 2024 Illinois Real Estate Awards

ARCO/Murray is proud to have been named the 2024 General Contractor of the Year in the Industrial Category at the RE Journals 2024 Illinois Real Estate Awards. As a Top 3 U.S. Design-Builder (ENR), we pride ourselves on offering clients the best experience through our diverse portfolio and unique capabilities to build even the most complex facilities.

This recognition is a result of over two decades of investment and growth in the Chicagoland area, driven by ARCO/Murray’s exceptional associates, who employ their expertise, tenacity, and creativity on and off the jobsite. We take pride in fostering a culture that values active collaboration, entrepreneurship, charitable giving, and fun, aligning with our core purpose: to make the construction process enjoyable for associates and clients alike.

Executive Vice President Joe Rook provided remarks at the awards ceremony, expressing ARCO/Murray’s gratitude and honor in receiving this prestigious award and extending our heartfelt thanks to our team, clients, and partners for their continued support and trust.

Project Manager of the Year: Colin Flynn

In addition to the General Contractor of the Year award, ARCO/Murray is celebrating Colin Flynn, who was named Project Manager of the Year at the event. Over the past six years, Colin has become a senior member of ARCO/Murray’s Tenant Solutions team, overseeing the onboarding and training programs and leading several key projects including the recent $40 million buildout of the North Austin Center – a first-of-its-kind, professional-level complex for sports, education, and wellness – and The Terminal – a 3x ‘Redevelopment of the Year’ recipient and historic adaptive reuse project.

Colin’s leadership and dedication have been instrumental in the success of many of our projects. His ability to manage teams and deliver results is a testament to his hard work and commitment. We applaud Colin for this well-deserved recognition.

Client Achievement: North Austin Center

ARCO/Murray is also thrilled to congratulate Intentional Sports, Grace + Peach Church and By the Hand Club for Kids on the recognition of North Austin Center, which was named Community Project of the Year. We are proud to have been a part of this unique indoor and outdoor facility that revitalized a once-vacant area in Chicago, providing a hub for sports, education, wellness and community engagement while fostering a strong and inclusive foundation for local families.
