Built to Last

When planning a construction or renovation project, you’re striving to meet the needs of facility users today and into the future. Understanding your unique long-term goals and achieving them in the final project is at the foundation of our approach on every project. Our attention to exceptional quality during all steps of our process makes sure your project is built to exceed expectations. And, we do it right the first time to maximize your investment.

Quality Without Question

You expect a quality building from your commercial contractor and rightly so. To closely align with your business goals, planning for quality starts early during the Design Phase, then continues throughout Construction, and well past completion.

Just like Safety, rigorous attention to quality is embedded into our culture. It’s just the way we work. First, we make sure all McCarthy employees and trade partners have the training and tools to take individual responsibility for quality and to produce superior results. Then, we use the most sophisticated Virtual Design & Construction technology together with a streamlined mix of Lean, ISO, Commissioning, Six Sigma and QA/QC processes to offer a truly comprehensive approach — all focused on identifying and eliminating potential issues before they become a costly reality.

Value to You

Our integrated approach to quality results in owners enjoying a highly satisfactory client experience and real value to all team members. Here's how:

For Owners: Value through clear design documents resulting in lower bids, integrated construction quality activities eliminating rework, earlier completion schedules, tested and verified system and assembly performance eliminating operational issues and ultimately reducing operating costs.

For Architects and Engineers: Value through clear design documents reducing requests for information and eliminating change orders, an integrated punch-list process, and reduced efforts on your part to have to review and approve project components.

For Trade Partners: Value through clear understanding of quality expectations, a provided means to achieve these through mock-up construction and testing, streamlined work-flow and elimination of the end-of-project issues you typically encounter.

For End-Users: Value through a project that meets your needs without delays or nuisance issues, positive impressions of the project and your productive use of your investment.

Protecting Your Investment

You’re making a significant investment in your construction project. You should expect your commercial construction company to take the steps necessary to protect and enhance this investment. Every McCarthy project in America has put the following initiatives into place to proactively plan and build for quality:

  • Building Enclosure Coordination Program
  • Water Infiltration Prevention Program
  • Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing Coordination Program
  • Site Specific Quality Planning
  • Quality Incident Reporting

I was very impressed when McCarthy staff approached me about a quality issue followed by a great solution before I could even ask questions. Most contractors I know make me find the problems and then try to avoid fixing the situation but that is not the case with the McCarthy team I had the privilege to work with.

Advancing Quality Across the Industry

As design and construction requirements become more complex, McCarthy has taken the lead to form an industry group to ensure quality remains at the forefront. The Construction Quality Executives Council, comprised of quality executives from America’s leading construction firms, is focused on advancing the art and science of quality in the built environment.
