DALLAS – (By Dale King) – Just over a year ago, Arch-Con Construction, a design-build general construction company created in Houston nearly two decades ago, opened a new office in Dallas. And during that time, the firm has completed a number of projects, begun even more, quadrupled its employee base and promoted leadership from within, said founder and CEO Michael G. Scheurich.
“I saw no better first location to expand than Dallas,” said Scheurich, who kicked off his construction career in the Big D. “It has been a great fit for us and we are thoroughly enjoying this dynamic market.”
Scheurich founded Arch-Con in Houston in 2000, but his vision has always been to expand. “I initially established Arch-Con as a resource for the local commercial market in the areas of office and industrial design-build construction,” he said “Along the way, the business expanded into the markets of retail, medical, corporate interiors, hospitality and community construction.”
“Arch-Con is more than just a typical contractor,” the founder noted. “Design is more than just a step along the way to completing a project. Designers and our construction team collaborate throughout the development process. This atmosphere of teamwork ensures that ‘big-picture’ design principles and day-to-day construction management decisions are aligned to maximize quality and efficiency.”
“Arch-Con’s distinct and separate divisions set us apart as well,” he said. “Our independent divisions act as individual business units that specialize in their respective markets.”
The company serves real estate developers, building owners, architects, brokers and tenants.
Since it moved to North Texas, Arch-Con has completed 624,000 square feet of industrial projects with 2 million square feet of industrial, retail and hospitality currently under construction or about to break ground.
These ventures include:
- Park 20 Distribution Center – This recently completed, 468,000-square-foot industrial project for Huntington Industrial Partners is a tilt-wall, cross-dock distribution center with a 32-foot clear height on a 36-acre site in Lancaster, Texas. The architect is Meinhardt & Associates Architects, P.L.L.C.
- Prologis Park Trinity Boulevard – This project was recently completed for developer Prologis. It is a 156,000-square-foot, tilt-wall, rear load industrial warehouse designed by Meinhardt & Associates.
- I-20 Commerce Center – Under construction, this nearly 1 million-square-foot, speculative tilt-wall storage facility designed by Powers Brown Architects and developed by Copeland Commercial was recognized as a “Best New Industrial Project” finalist for D CEO’s Commercial Real Estate Awards 2017.
- Frisco Ranch – This specialty Asian retail center in the heart of Frisco’s retail hub will have more than 88,100 square feet of retail and restaurant space and will be anchored by a 99 Ranch Market and Daiso Japan.
- Hines Parkside Las Colinas Self Storage – Currently under construction, this project totals 95,178 square feet and consists of six buildings containing 649 storage units. Five structures are single-story with drive-up storage units and one is a 79,678-square-foot climate-controlled facility.
At the management level, Arch-Con’s Senior Vice President Robert Martin was recently promoted from vice president of the company’s Office and Industrial Divisions in Dallas to lead the entire Dallas office. Martin has more than 20 years of construction management experience, all in North Texas, and has completed more than $350 million in work.
“We have had a strong year establishing a solid foundation,” he said. “I look forward to continuing to build our team and the company here in Dallas.”
Raised in Beaumont, Texas, Scheurich received his undergraduate degree in Construction Science at Texas A&M. He began his career in the Dallas-Fort Worth area with projects like The Ball Park at Arlington and Doctors Hospital Medical Tower.
After settling in Houston, he earned his Master of Business Administration degree from the University of St. Thomas.
