Construction is complete for the Los Angeles County Administration Building, a $65.1 million facility in South Los Angeles. Built by McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., the project comprises a $55.5 million, four-story office building and a $9.6 million, six-story parking structure occupying one block of Vermont Avenue between 83rd and 84th streets.
With the final placement of a signed beam, McCarthy has completed construction of the steel structure for the Roy and Patricia Disney Cancer Center. Located at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, Calif., the $21.8 million facility will be the San Fernando Valley’s most comprehensive free-standing cancer center when it opens in summer 2009.
McCarthy was selected as a winner of an Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America 2008 Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering Award for the $203 million St. Joseph Hospital Patient Care Center in Orange. The award was presented on March 11 at the AGC’s 89th Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nev. The Patient Care Center was one of five projects receiving an award.
In observance of Daffodil Days, a national celebration of hope and healing for cancer patients, St. Joseph Hospital, McCarthy and TAYLOR teamed up to bring cancer patients a smile and hope in an event dedicated to raising awareness of cancer. The event was part of the McCarthy Heart Hats volunteer outreach program, led by the employees of McCarthy.
McCarthy has joined with Westcoast Roof Consulting of Costa Mesa to assemble a group of subcontractors and suppliers to help reroof the Laguna Beach Community Clinic (LBCC). Altogether, the group is expected to donate approximately $35,000 in construction materials and services to complete this project. LBCC provides a full scope of primary care services to the underserved in this area and is one of only two community clinics in south Orange County. Dr. Korey Jorgensen, a physician at LBCC for more than 35 years, is spearheading the building effort for the clinic.
