About McCarthy

McCarthy. Our Difference is Building.®

How has McCarthy grown to become one of America's premier builders? Here are just a few of the many ways, which all add up to an answer as simple as it is profound. It's just different here. And our difference is building.

True builders.

Because we are builders who understand every aspect of your project, we have greater control over the entire construction process—from project/risk management to cost/quality controls. We thrive on the challenge of working 'hands-on' and owning responsibility for the most complex and challenging of projects, both large and small. So we can deliver the best final cost, every time.

From preconstruction through completion.

Key Differentiators

Count on us to handle every aspect of your project, including preconstruction, self-perform services, project management, risk management, safety and legal services. We have in-house experts in conceptual estimating, alternative building systems, phasing/procurement strategies and much more. All to ensure you get the most from every construction dollar.

We're here for you.

For 150 years, McCarthy has been financially sound, never defaulting on a payment or performance bond. Respected by major surety companies throughout North America, McCarthy decreases your risk in an economically uncertain world—where contractor defaults are on the rise.

Customer Centric and 100% employee owned.

McCarthy employees have a vested interest in every project's success...and your complete satisfaction. There's a unique sense of pride here that only an owner can have. As we say, it's just different here. And it shows in our customer satisfaction ratings and repeat business.

Where quality and safety meet.

Quality and safety are the foundation of who we are, and one leads to the other. A safe site is a clean site, which builds both quality and pride. And a quality project eliminates rework, reducing the risk of injury. Our leadership in quality and safety stands alone: For example, we've led in healthcare construction for as long as rankings have been kept. And we've earned our industry's premier safety award, the Willis/AGC Construction Safety Excellence Award. So it should come as no surprise that our experience modification rate is one of the lowest in our industry.

Here, technology drives innovation.

Key Differentiators

More than a hands-on builder, we embrace the most forward-thinking technologies as well, including VDC, Integrated Project Delivery, Sustainable Construction and Lean Building.

Local and national.

All building may be 'local,' but it often takes national resources to help overcome the greatest challenges. We combine industry-wide expertise with the very best local talent to create more certainty for owners and subs alike. By doing so, we also help ensure worker safety, while earning the respect (and repeat business) of every owner. Perhaps most of all, we give back to the communities we serve, and call home. This is the true difference we make.
