ARCO Design/Build Completes Construction of Waller, Texas, Manufacturing and Oil Rig Test Complex

ARCO Design/Build recently completed construction of a new manufacturing and oil rig test site featuring two buildings in Waller, Texas. The facilities were built for Archway Properties and AFGlobal, a subsidiary of AFG Holdings, Inc., a provider of technology, services and fully integrated manufacturing capabilities to clients worldwide.

According to ARCO, this build to suit facility supports AFGlobal's upstream equipment expertise serving the energy sector. The new site consists of two buildings totaling 95,000 SF for manufacturing and testing oil drill rigs. The manufacturing building is serviced by fourteen overhead cranes and includes an employee welfare area, mezzanine offices, a fabrication shop, a parts storage area and twenty assembly bays. The testing building consists of a two-story office/shop for both employees and visitor viewing, six test bays with a dedicated electrical substation, a wash bay and a fluids/lubrication shop.

"It was a great experience to work with ARCO on the AFGlobal Campus located at the Waller Industrial Park. ARCO sets the bar high when it comes to design-build. We look forward to continuing to grow a great working relationship with Eric, John and the ARCO team," said Jason R. Smith, Business Development Director for Archway Properties.

"Archway Properties and AFGlobal were great partners throughout the project. We're blessed to have been a part of this collaborative team on this state-of-the-art facility and look forward to watching it contribute to the success and growth of AFGlobal's business." says Eric Safko, Vice President of ARCO Design/Build (ARCO).
