Brad Dannegger notes repeat, or earned through or Brad Dannegger, construction is more than just work, but instead something he has a passion for. “We love helping turn our customer’s vision into reality with the design, construction and completion of state-of-the-art projects,” he says. “There is nothing better than seeing the excitement on our customer’s face as we hand them the key to their new facility.” Dannegger is the vice president and partner in ARCO/Murray National Construction Co. Inc., a design/build construction company that has completed projects in more than 400 cities in 40 states and Canada. In 1995, Dannegger joined the ARCO/Murray family of companies, a St. Louis-based design/build firm. He later transferred to the company’s Florida office, where he focused on business development. “In 2003, I basically sat down with the team down there and said, ‘Chicago’s a huge market, and it’s my hometown,’” he recalls. “’Let’s open up an office for ARCO and show Chicago what the ARCO Advantage is all about.’” When Dannegger’s partners agreed, he opened the office in 2003. “We came to Chicago with no work, no relationships and no associates. However, we were confident that with our business philosophy of hiring the best and the brightest associates to join the ARCO/Murray team combined with our mantra of being a customer service company that happens to do design and construction would lead to success,” he says. “[We] have worked hard to develop relationships.” Doing Business Today, the ARCO/Murray Chicago office has a staff of 25 and has completed work across the nation. “We focus on the design/build projects of all types, including light industrial and commercial marketplaces,” Dannegger says, adding that 75 to 80 percent of the company’s work is repeat business or earned through referrals. ARCO/Murray has benefited, Dannegger says, from the parentage of ARCO. “It’s a name that’s well-known and respected throughout the industry and the country,” he says. “It helps open the door that much further.” In addition, ARCO/Murray has developed a strong talent base, “with members who have tremendous technical skills, can-do attitudes million+ • Average national sales: $325 e, Ill. • Headquarters: Oakbrook Terrac ionally • Employees: 25 locally, 225 nat cting • Service: Design/build general contra ra N ARCO/MurCoy Inational nstruction . c.
