McCarthy Architecture News

McCarthy Architecture was founded on the principle that clear and concise communication is the most important factor in the success of our professional relationships. The design and construction process is a complex undertaking that requires a coordinated and focused effort from all participants. At all stages of a project’s evolution, from schematic design to construction administration, our customers, consultants, suppliers, and contractors require up-to-date and complete information. Project meeting minutes, cost estimates, field reports, drawings, and 3D renderings are a few of the tools that we use toward that end.

Grayson-Collin Electric Cooperative Progress

Over the last several weeks, construction has rapidly moved along at Grayson-Collin Electric Cooperative's new headquarters in Van Alstyne.  At the office building, all exterior walls have been framed and both sheathing and stone/brick veneer are being installed.  In addition, the hardened area has been completed, and other interior walls are being framed throughout the facility.  At the warehouse building, exterior work is almost complete and interior finish-out is taking place.  Similarly, the maintenance building is rapidly approaching completion, with primarily interior work remaining.

On the Boards: Fire Wheel Bible Fellowship

Client: Fire Wheel Bible Fellowship
Status: Construction Documentation

McCarthy Architecture is working closely with Firewheel Bible Fellowship to restore and improve an abandoned and unfinished structure that has long been an eyesore for their community. McCarthy Architecture used computer modeling to produce renderings and animations that assisted with the Fellowship's capitol campaign and has also allowed us to visually convey project concepts and ideas to the client so they can understand proposed spaces their relationship to the rest of the program as well as have a better idea of how the finished project will look and feel. As the Construction Documents near completion, we are preparing to break ground soon.

On the Boards: Dallas Parks and Recreation Department

Client: Dallas Parks and Recreation Department
Status: Construction

McCarthy Architecture was selected to assist the City of Dallas Parks and Recreation Department renovate an aging and out dated recreational facility in Ridgewood Park. The City of Dallas desired to utilize the interior space more efficiently, make the facility accessible for the entire community and bring more life into the dated 60’s era structure on a very strict bond budget.

The interior has been reprogrammed to meet the expanded requirements outlined by the City to allow for the most efficient functionality. Materials have been selected for minimal maintenance and durability in this high traffic environment. When complete, Ridgewood Recreational Center will have new offices, a workout room, classrooms, as well as a renovated meeting room, lobby, commercial grade kitchen and accessible restrooms. The addition and refinement of these amenities ensure that the community will enjoy the facility for several years.
