ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — National design and construction firm ARCO/Murray recently completed a 14,400-square-foot, build-to-suit healthcare laundry facility for Mosaic Life Care located here, the company reports.
ARCO/Murray provided a complete design-build solution, including laundry facility layout, architectural and engineering design, permitting, construction, and final equipment connections.
Mosaic started the project using a traditional plan-and-spec approach using local designers and general contractors.
However, after initial pricing was higher than expected, Mosaic partnered with ARCO/Murray to develop a project solution that met the original budget requirements, according to the company.
Construction began in July 2017 and was completed in just under 7 months.
The new laundry includes a central dock, an 800-square-foot mechanical room, office area and production space. Loomis Brothers Equipment Co. provided Milnor washroom and Chicago Dryer finishing equipment. Kannegiesser ETECH provided the rail system.
ARCO/Murray’s Max Potvin was project manager, and John Holdmeyer served as project superintendent.
