ARCO Beverage Group Completes Facility for High Country Beverage


ARCO Beverage Group recently completed construction of a 134,462 SF beverage distribution facility with office and truck maintenance garage for High Country Beverage. Located in Johnstown, Colorado, this new facility features a 77,907 SF controlled temperature warehouse, 18,793 SF draught cooler, 7,660 SF enclosed back-in loading area, and a 3,740 SF truck maintenance facility. As the new headquarters for High Country Beverage the building also includes a 26,332 SF two-story office and hospitality suite. 

Utilizing ARCO Beverage Group’s design/build process, High Country Beverage was able to reduce costs, reduce risk, and ultimately have their new headquarters quicker than if they had used the traditional method of construction. The end product is stunning, and High Country couldn’t be happier to call this their new home.

ARCO Beverage Group Completes New Facility for RMC Distributing


ARCO Beverage Group is proud to have recently completed construction on a new beer distributorship for RMC Distributing! When RMC began contemplating a more efficient operation, they first envisioned the consolidation of their two facilities in Southeastern Colorado to one new building. After 12 months of due diligence and consultation, ARCO helped RMC settle on a more cost-effective project in the ideal location. Together, ARCO and RMC determined the best solution would be to purchase and renovate an existing 134,000 square foot warehouse/office and add 32,630 square feet of additional corporate office, back-in loading and dunnage canopy space. The newly finished warehouse includes a large draught cooler, POS area, and repack area. The office finishes feature executive space on the second floor, a 4,100 square foot hospitality room with focal bar & outdoor patio with fire pit, and a new fitness room for RMC associates. The exposed structure, polished concrete, grand staircase and glass sectional door have resulted in a statement making space for the company to thrive and grow. Owner, Mike Pfalmer, remarked that the difference maker in partnering with ARCO was the tremendous benefit of working with a single point of contact throughout the process.


“Due to ARCO being a design and build organization, the project moved very smoothly and allowed for beneficial cross talk between all stakeholders. ARCO’s experience genuinely helped RMC work through design challenges that could have otherwise resulted in budget blows, delays or simply an unsatisfactory result. Their teamwork concept and constant communication gave us all a sense of inclusion and a deeper understanding of the project…”


In addition to a successful construction project, the team dynamic between ARCO and RMC is one that has produced a valuable professional partnership as well as great personal friendships.


“To just say that I recommend ARCO as a design/build contractor falls short of the mark. The experience we had with ARCO extends beyond simply construction, to a true long term partnership that will undoubtedly see future projects with RMC. ARCO is indeed best in class and I wholeheartedly recommend them for any construction projects you may have. It has been my sincere pleasure doing business with ARCO, but I also gained long lasting friendships during this build as well.”
