What We Do
McCarthy Makes Construction Project Management and Facility Management Successful
services used to achieve success include:
budget, timeline, and guidance or all development tasks
– including work we perform and related work performed by others.
and building review
for suitability, feasibility, and cost of development
technical investigation and analysis
for development consisting of surveys and civil engineering
analysis, environmental investigation, soil exploration and
analysis, as well analysis of specific building components such
as masonry, windows and doors, and roofs for value and long term
variation and special use permissions
In years past attorneys performed this task, but slowly and at an unnecessarily high cost. We now obtain these permissions, and integrate the services of highly specialized attorneys for focused tasks when required. Savings of 50-80% are realized.
All zoning approvals sought to date have been obtained.

and experienced in your project type. A close working

increases quality, and reduces and manages costs.

assistance and analysis before
the design starts. Build in the optimal cost effective solution
from the start, rather than later “value engineering” a

building every day can know this.
proprietary “ground up costing” system establishes workable
costs in the preliminary design stage, and maintain them through
project completion. These are real concrete costs, not paper
Cost Segregation Analysis Segregation of the costs of the parts of a building allows depreciation of these parts over 3,5,7 or 15 years instead of the 39 years normally required for a commercial building. This increases tax deductions and therefore cash flow. This is an IRS approved technique with a proven track record. We use the detailed engineering approach from actual cost records, which is the most rigorous of the six methods recognized by the IRS. For buildings we build, we already have the engineering knowledge and cost records, which helps efficiency and accuracy. We can also perform a cost segregation study for a building built by others, or for an acquired property for which no construction work was performed. Multi-year look backs are also possible.

We build the project using our
own forces and the services of a select list of experienced
subcontractors. We are not a “paper” general contractor. We
still perform a significant portion of the work with our own
forces and have multiple projects underway at all times. Our
stable work force produces an excellent safety record.
Component Useful life Analysis This analysis identifies each building component, its useful life, and a cost for replacement to establish real world multi-year capital budgets. Maintenance and capital replacements can then be scheduled to maximize the facility's useful life while minimizing cost.
Where We Assist Others:
estate leasing and acquisition.
We provide no real estate leasing or acquisition
ourselves, but can work with your real estate professional, or a professional we recommend, to
optimize the future constructability of the project. In addition
to the building analysis described above, we can write and
provide tenant work letters and riders to the letter of intent
for items relevant to construction and development, so value is
optimized and future problems minimized.
We provide no
financing ourselves, but can provide construction technical
assistance to those who do. We can work with your finance
company and provide costing, work descriptions, and technical
documents that can speed the loan commitment and closing. For
some project types, we can provide references of the most
experienced and effective specialized finance companies.
What Method of Delivery is Right for You?
select the level of services right for your project.
For some client needs,
such as a new building or a new business venture, all of these
services are required to optimize value and insure project
other client needs, such as renovation of an existing owned
property, more limited services may be required - and project
management delivery may be most
effective. For yet smaller projects, such as minor remodeling
within an existing facility - design and construction
management services only may be
required. We will
help identify and provide the services and delivery system most effective for
