Putting Technology to Work for You

To execute a successful construction project takes more than just labor and materials. It takes effective communications and accurate, timely information to deliver great results. Our goal is always to provide up-to-the-minute project information that’s easy for the entire team to access, wherever and whenever it’s needed — starting in the design phase, through project close-out and for every milestone in between. That’s why we lead the industry in putting the most sophisticated technology solutions to work on every project. Not technology just for technology’s sake — but to help deliver quality, schedule and cost certainty you can count on.

The McCarthy Project Portal

When every team member has real-time access to the information they need, we can all work seamlessly together. This enhances collaboration and directly benefits your project’s bottom line. Our secure McCarthy Project Portal was designed in-house with this result in mind. An easy-to-use dashboard provides access to project-specific apps, custom reports and analytics, building information models, progress photos, team calendar and more, all at your fingertips, anytime, anywhere. From your board room, to the designer’s work room, right to the heart of your active jobsite.

A Customized Approach that Delivers Real Value

Construction projects today are more complex than ever — faster schedules, tighter budgets, and one-of-a-kind designs are all part of the process. Technology is integral in our commitment to deliver a successful outcome for you.

Our agile approach to technology is different from other contractors. As a builder, we listen closely to you to understand the requirements of your project first. Then, we bring you the most complete package of relevant technology tools combined with practical building know-how to help you achieve your unique goals.

To do this, we’re constantly monitoring technology trends, putting new tools to the test and sharing best practices to continuously improve client results. You’ll find us working directly with tech giants like Oracle and Microsoft, software developers like Autodesk and Bluebeam, and product manufacturers like virtual reality leader Occulus, all to make their products work even better for our clients and partners. And, you’ll find emerging newcomers turning to us for R&D input and feedback.

Our Tech Tools Provide Value by:

  • Improving communications
  • Enhancing collaboration
  • Streamlining decision-making
  • Delivering accurate pricing
  • Shortening schedules
  • Reducing changes in the field
  • Improving project safety and quality

The Virtual World Just Got Real

The process to make sure your project is completed with the highest quality at the best final cost often begins during the Design Phase in your project’s virtual model. Together with each client, design and trade partner, we use the most sophisticated Virtual Design Construction (VDC) technology across many applications to improve communication and project management, identify challenges before they become on-site issues and propose new solutions to improve your experience … and ultimately your results.​

Increasing Safety and Efficiency with Drones

The rapidly advancing technology of drone technology allows us to view our job sites from a whole new perspective. Our in-house drone experts utilize drones to expand our ability to monitor and improve the quality of our work, provide additional information to clients and team members and further enhance the safety of our team members. We’re now able to pilot drones to high floors of buildings for high definition quality checks, monitor and track material usage, conduct final safety sweeps before shutting down a job site for the day and much more. Drones allow us to work even more efficiently and effectively while maintaining our high standard of quality.
