When our country was just forming, courthouses and other justice buildings were often placed in the center of the communities they served. Many of these ornate buildings were set atop a hill or made as the focal point of a town square, doubling as a place where legal cases were heard and grand festivals and special events were held.

Today's prison construction and courthouse construction projects are less of a “community center” but they serve many new functions; housing city halls, police stations and other municipal offices. McCarthy has been building projects like these for decades, gaining experience to put our teams at the forefront of the latest trends.

From preconstruction through delivery and beyond, we can partner with you to make today’s courts and correctional centers both sophisticated and attractive. Inherent in correctional facility construction - or any other project - is our commitment to Quality Without Question. It’s our promise to clients to build a more secure and technologically advanced correctional facility that keeps up with evolving regulations and helps you achieve your long- and short-term strategic goals.
