OHL’s acquisition interest in Arellano Construction allowed them to establish and expand its presence in the healthcare, commercial and institutional markets in the US. As a family-owned and operated company for over four decades, OHL-Arellano has built a reputation as a trustworthy and client-focused partner. This service oriented approach, coupled with OHL’s 100+ years of building complex, technically challenging projects throughout the world and the ability to offer financing options, provides a truly unique combination to the Florida construction market.
OHL Building is comprised of the former companies: The Tower Group, Stride Contractors, and Betancourt Castellon Associates (BCA) which were acquired by OHL USA. These acquisitions began in 2008 with the Tower Group and Stride Contractors in 2009, a team who has continued providing construction management services as a General Contractor under the name OHL Building.
Notable projects include the Florida Turnpike design-build Service Plazas and the Airport Link Miami, FL.
The final acquisition in 2010 was Betancourt Castellon Associates, who has been in South Florida since 1981. The BCA staff has continued to provide services to Miami-Dade County Public Schools since 1989 under the name of OHL Building. The team has delivered 30+, cost-effective, quality construction projects.
Miami-Dade Public Schools is the fourth largest school district in the United States. This construction team accomplished the first LEED School in Miami-Dade County, achieving LEED Gold Certification. M-DCPS Project: YYY-1 Terra Environmental Research Institute.
