KYLE, Texas — ARCO/Murray recently completed construction of a 96,000-square-foot, build-to-suit laundry facility for linen and uniform rental company Alsco here, the national construction company reports. 

The new mixed plant will service 7,500 customers in the greater Austin area. Plant operations began on Sept. 4 with a team of 150 employees.

The facility includes a new 9,000-square-foot office, 6,500-square-foot mechanical room and a 9,000-square-foot second-level mezzanine. The exterior walls are concrete tilt construction with an interior clear height of 28 feet. 

ARCO/Murray says the equipment was provided by a mix of vendors, including washroom equipment by Milnor and Ellis; rail by Ryco and Kannegiesser ETECH; soil counting by Automation Dynamics; finishing equipment from JENSEN, Leonard Automatics and Tingue; and dryers from Ellis. Ludell and Norchem supplied the mechanical room equipment. 

The project was completed and turned over to Alsco 10 days ahead of the contracted completion date. ARCO/Murray’s Justin Hearld was the project manager with David Rogers serving as the superintendent.
