Multifamily developer and general contractor, BECO LLC produced a central hub for living and thriving in Suffolk, VA. Designed by Housing Studio Architects, 3800 Acqua Apartments hosts several restaurants, entertainment, and retail spaces along with 291 apartment units and leasing spaces. This premier mixed-use project offers residents a resort-quality pool, dog park, clubhouse, fitness center, and more. Plus the town of Suffolk can also enjoy the easily walkable and safe shopping center on Aqua’s first floor.
Burt Cutright, BECO Owner, “BECO is extremely proud and excited to bring our vision of a community-centric, mixed-use development to Suffolk. Not only paving the way for an elevated live, work., play experience in the area, but also setting the start for future growth in the market.”
This was our first project with BECO, initiated by a formal proposal for Arch-Fab to provide a comprehensive turnkey solution for the complete canopy and awning scope of work.
The new multi-family project location was 1,400 miles away from Arch-Fab’s headquarters and the expected delivery was in the middle of winter.
In order to be an ideal partner for BECO on this project and future projects outside of Texas, Arch-Fab obtained DOT licensure, making 3800 Acqua Apartments our first DOT certified project. This enabled Arch-Fab to have more flexibility to maintain schedules and ensure product quality during transportation. Professional project management and carefully-planned logistics resulted in a successful project completed on time and under budget.
Following the successful 3800 Acqua project, we teamed up with BECO again on Royal Sails, a multi-family development also in Suffolk, VA. AS BECO continues to innovate and grow in new markets, Arch-Fab is ready to continue expanding this mutually-beneficial partnership.
“Partnering with BECO on 3800 Acqua, a stunning mixed-use development 1,400 miles away from our Fort Worth headquarters, exemplifies Arch-Fab’s ability to provide turnkey end-to-end architectural metal solutions,” explains Philip Klement, VP of Preconstruction. “Our team embraced unique challenges and greatly appreciated the professionalism of the BECO team. We look forward to our next venture together.”
