McDonald York has steadily grown from a small general contracting company begun in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1910 into one of the Triangle's most experienced and respected providers of construction services. We oversee projects ranging from small interior renovations to some of the most recognizable architectural landmarks throughout the Triangle.
We approach each project with a cooperative mind-set, working with clients, architects, and subcontractors toward the common goal - successful project delivery. From the very beginning a client is assigned a MYBC Client Executive, or advocate, whose job is to look out for the clients best interests. The Client Executive serves as the main point of contact between the client and team, and always errs on the side of "over communication". We believe in sharing information and making sure that all parties involvedÂ have all the information they need to be successful.
On the surface, the differences between the company of the early 1900's and the McDonald York of today are vast. However, there are key deep-seated elements that remain at our core - values and principles, talent and hard work - that account for the reason McDonald York has the skilled personnel, clientele, and reputation it does today.In fact, McDonald York's reputation has become one of our most important assets. That reputation is - and continues to be - founded on the integrity of our employees. Conducting business with a strong sense of ethics and fairness is paramount to our continued success. We hold our work and employees up to the highest moral, ethical and professional standards, because doing what is fair just never gets old.
McDonald York strives to deliver quality construction to each and every client. We follow a Quality Management Program with specific quality-based procedures. We avoid the "inspecting then rejection" mode of operation by directing quality management to the project team including our subcontractors and tradesmen responsible for performing the work. McDonald York's quality process is a practical way of working and a better way of managing that helps avoid costly delays and claims.
McDonald York understands that construction means more than simply following drawings and making sure a building is up to code. It is about making the client's and architect's visions come to life. This means that details are as important as the bigger picture - the way a joint fits together, the careful installation of materials to showcase their beauty, the tweak of building systems to ensure maximum operational efficiency.
Our founders saw the vast potential to elevate construction services when they began McDonald York Building Company. Today, this potential translates into providing unique, client-centered services throughout the Triangle region.
We believe in the necessity of becoming an active member of the client's project team - a readily available, reliable and knowledgeable partner. As we look to the future, we see the continued refinement of our MYWay® approach where the concepts of Trust-Based Teams, Early Collaboration and Sustainability really take root.
