Nina Otero Community School (NOCS) will be a successful build for Santa Fe Public Schools in large part because of McCarthy NM. The McCarthy NOCS team brings their "A" game daily. Always willing to assist, solve issues immediately, and never stop being an advocate for the owner. The McCarthy NOCS team is professional, thorough and team players. Santa Fe Public Schools is confident NOCS school construction is in good hands and will be complete for fall occupation.
