McAlvain provides its Owner’s full documentation for each pay application, full reporting and complete access to this information throughout the duration of our projects.
McAlvain has built a reputation of exceeding client expectations in regards to quality, budget and schedule. Our proven QA/QC program ensures that our projects are constructed per plans, specifications, and applicable codes while at the same time facilitating a high level of craftsmanship. This program has been successfully utilized on numerous projects totaling nearly a billion of dollars of work-in-place and involving interaction with multiple subcontractors, city and state agencies, building departments, A/E’s and clients. McAlvain takes great pride in our ability to fast-track our projects with extremely aggressive timelines based on our pre-planning efforts and execution of our unique preconstruction procedures.
Our project team recognizes the value of a viable safety program and take great pride in making sure all our employees, and our subcontractors’ employees, work in a safe environment every day. Our motto is, “SAFETY COMES FIRST” and starts at the highest level within our organization. Our project team has partnered with OSHA since 1998.
