Great Bay Distributors Completes St. Petersburg Distributorship


ARCO Beverage Group recently completed construction of a 267,787 square foot beverage distribution facility and office for Great Bay Distributors. Located in St. Petersburg, Florida, the building is home to a 1.5 Megawatt Solar System, the largest privately owned rooftop solar system in the state. This $2.6 million system will reduce the company’s electric costs by as much as 40%, and is predicted to cut carbon dioxide emissions by over 43,000 tons. As the new headquarters, the distributorship also comes equipped with an outstanding hospitality room, sign shop, maintenance building, truck wash area, and fuel island.

When ARCO began conceptual design, the owners had yet to decide on the look of the front entry for their new building. After a visit to the ARCO headquarters, they chose to emulate the two-story glass front façade. This insulated tilt-up concrete structure also includes a 143,000 square foot controlled environment warehouse with a 30’ clear cross dock area.

The final product is an amazing representation of Great Bay’s rich history and bright future. ARCO is honored to have been a part of the process – from concept to completion.
