Team Leaders

Good Team Leaders are Teammates First

We take a “We, Not I” approach to every project, leveraging cross-functional partnerships across our organization and understanding when and where to partner externally to strengthen not only the outcome for our clients but our relationships along the way.


Our Hearts are Always in the Right Place

Our passion for helping clients achieve their short- and long-term goals is rivaled only by our passion for helping those in need. We're a construction company that cares about our community.

Our Difference Makes Us Stronger

When a wide variety of cultures, backgrounds and opinions interconnect in a true teamwork environment, a broad spectrum of ideas and solutions emerge. 

Our History

More Than 150 Years of Learning, Building and Growing – To Meet the Needs of Our Clients

In 1864, Irish immigrant Timothy McCarthy began a small business building barns and farmhouses in Ann Arbor, Michigan. One hundred and fifty years later, we’re a top commercial builder, but we owe our growth to our clients and partners.

There’s Something Different Here

You feel it when we shake hands and look you in the eye. You see it in our organized, tidy jobsites. It’s ingrained in the way we think, plan and execute and it explains why we take responsibility for issues and seek excellence in all we do — throughout every stage of the project.
