The Challenge 

Arco ampm is a popular convenience store chain on the west coast, first originating in Southern California. Barghausen was contracted by our customer, BP West Coast Products, LLC, for this particular Arco ampm project in Bellingham, WA. 

The project itself consisted of a rebrand from Shell to ARCO ampm. This included:

  • Removal of a 1,200-square ft. convenience store located under the existing canopy 
  • Removal of an 800-square ft. car wash 
  • Construction of an approximately 3,200-saure ft. ampm store in the backcourt of a 3/4 acre site 
  • Addition of two islands where the canopy store was removed

Our team was faced with several unique challenges for the Arco ampm project in Bellingham. As previously mentioned, the project called for the removal of an under canopy store. In particular, the site was challenging from a grade standpoint since the canopy was to remain and two additional islands and a new store were constructed in the back court.
