As the proud recipient of the 2019 Multi-Family Builder of the Year Pillars Award, McShane Construction Company was built on the values of honesty, integrity and partnership. Thirty-five years later, these values still guide the company as they transform their clients’ visions into reality.
The firm was awarded their first multi-family project in 1998 and has gone on to build over 20,000 units. They have expanded their portfolio to include luxury, market rate, affordable and mixed-income residences, supportive housing, independent, assisted-living and memory care senior living facilities and off-campus student housing residences.
Recently recognized as the fourth largest multi-family contractor in the nation by Multifamily Executive magazine, the McShane organization is known as a premier multi-family general contractor in the United States, serving clients in 33 states from their offices in Chicago, Phoenix, Irvine, Auburn and Madison.
McShane believes in exceeding the expectations of their clients by delivering high-quality projects and building relationships that last. This is exhibited by the fact that 75% of their projects are performed for repeat clients. The firm also strives to add value to the communities in which they build. This is done not only by delivering projects that enhance the community, but also by engaging the community and local businesses.
McShane takes advantage of every opportunity to employ residents of the local neighborhood by working with community groups to offer opportunities to residents to participate in the construction of their projects. Additionally, they are committed to involving minority business enterprises (MBE) and women business enterprises (WBE) and regularly exceed hiring goals. McShane’s culture extends beyond the walls of their office and into every jobsite and community they work in.
McShane Construction has enjoyed several achievements over the last three years, including profitable growth, new geographic markets and an evolution of our rich company culture. Since 2016, overall revenue has grown 69% while revenue from the multi-family sector has increased by 78%. During this same time period, our workforce has increased 42%. Many of these successes can be directly attributed to the long-standing relationships we build with our clients, communities and subcontractor base.
As McShane has experienced responsible growth over the last few years, the firm has maintained concentration on company culture that is rooted in the principles of honesty, integrity and ethical conduct. In order to achieve this, we’ve continued to improve our focus on our most important asset: our employees.
Employee growth and well-being have been paramount to the success of the organization. All McShane employees receive regular coaching, training, mentoring and project experience to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to advance their careers in construction.
Many of our company leaders joined McShane as interns or new grads and developed their entire careers with the company. We provide benefits that address the needs of all employees, including our student loan assistance program and 100% paid parental leave. McShane’s approach to professional development and well-being is evidenced by our voluntary turnover rate of 7.2%, considerably lower than the industry average of 26.4%
