Overview

Today’s projects are increasingly complex, requiring a fully collaborative team approach. To get the best results, clients are seeking architects and engineers who are creative and practical in equal measure. Whether a project is large or small, new construction or renovation, ARCOR is focused on client success and on creating buildings of enduring value. Our ability to deliver any or all of the required professional services under a single contract is a tremendous benefit for owners; offering a better coordinated, more efficient process from start to finish.

Offering fully integrated professional services for a broad range of clients and project types worldwide, ARCOR is recognized not only for design and construction excellence, but also for leadership in technology, process innovation, and sustainability. We work closely with each and every client to create buildings that provide exceptional value.

ARCOR provides planning, architecture, interior design, engineering, construction management, program management, and design-build of new buildings; as well as expansion, renovation and refurbishment of existing facilities for public and private sector clients.

ARCOR’s specialized consulting teams for asset management, site development, laboratory planning, commissioning, procurement, energy & power, and workplace strategy help determine the most appropriate design and construction options, improve operational efficiencies, and advance environmental goals. With our global network, we are able to deliver unparalleled resources, develop integrated programs and draw from a diverse pool of talent to design and execute any type of building.


Education

An explosion of new knowledge, sophisticated technology, an enrollment boom, and the need to connect with an increasingly diverse population are having a profound effect on how educational institutions shape their curricula and expand their campuses. Classrooms, laboratories, libraries, dormitories, athletic facilities, and other educational buildings are being re-thought and re-engineered from the ground up, creating spaces that promote a distinctive and engaging sense of community for students and faculty alike.

The challenges presented by academia are as unique as they are complex. Design and construction must reflect a sensitive balance between building issues and those involved with a broader campus or neighborhood environment.

Helping institutes of higher education of all sizes, ARCOR delivers safe, 21st century learning environments for academic growth and excellence. We design and build successful educational facility programs founded on the latest thinking in educational planning, understanding of clients’ communities, and experience in successful project delivery.

ARCOR offers cradle-to-grave services including programming, planning, architecture & engineering design, project management and construction management for public and private institutional clients.


Corporate Commercial & Retail

ARCOR approaches corporate, commercial, and retail building design without a predetermined vocabulary or a pre-existing agenda. We are committed to environmentally sensitive design and incorporate sustainability evaluations throughout our design process; constantly learning new technological tools that facilitate coordination and substantiate the impact of decisions. Our integrated approach to design allows our interior designers, architects, engineers, project managers and construction managers to work together to create advanced office and retail building environments.

With a real-world understanding of our clients’ requirements for financial success and assets with enduring market value; ARCOR works to develop design solutions that best meet their goals, align with the local market, and achieve the unique place-making qualities of each project with ultimate flexibility and highest efficiency for the users.

ARCOR projects include a diverse range and scale of building types; from high-rise offices to urban infill, retail space to mixed-use projects that are distinct, exuding a level of detail, materials, and finesse that enrich their environments. We design towers in cities, corporate headquarters on greenfield sites, infill buildings in brownfield developments, and adaptive reuse in existing structures. We plan for the possibilities of expansion and factor in exit strategies; and design and construct all facets of the retail sector, from new stores, restaurants, and mixed-use developments to tenant improvements, expansions, renovations, and re-branding/re-imaging programs.
