The McCarthy Team in Omaha

One of the nation’s largest commercial construction companies, McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., continues to build upon its Omaha presence to support the needs of Nebraska and western Iowa by opening an office located at 14217 Dayton Circle, Suite 8.  The full-service Omaha office broadens the national builder’s geographic reach and increases its ability to build mutually beneficial relationships across the region.

Since 2001, the higher education and healthcare building leader has completed more than $450 million of projects in Nebraska. McCarthy has completed dozens of projects for CHI Health, most recently the $22 million, 80,000-square-foot Creighton University Medical Center University Campus, which is the first and only freestanding Emergency Department in Nebraska.

“McCarthy is a trusted partner who truly believes in taking care of its clients,” said Josh Olson, division manager, CHI Health Planning, Design & Construction. “We know they will deliver the same high standard of care in building this medical center for our community as we do in providing healthcare and education.”

In recent years, McCarthy has expanded in the K-12 market with the award of several high-profile projects with Omaha Public Schools, including the $29 million, 162,616-square-foot renovation and addition project at the Beveridge Magnet School for Global Studies and the Arts, a $6.5 million renovation and addition of Sunny Slope Elementary School and $26.5 million of additions and renovations to Norris Middle School.

“Expanding McCarthy’s services in Omaha solidifies our commitment to delivering exceptional building solutions for our clients in Nebraska and Western Iowa,” said Omaha Project Director Ryan Sawall. “McCarthy currently has more than 30 employees working on several healthcare and education projects in the local area, and we look forward to continuing to build on this experience while also expanding into other markets bringing our industry leading national expertise to the pharmaceutical, food, manufacturing and other highly technical markets in Nebraska and Iowa.”
