Collin College Holds Dedication Ceremony for New McCarthy Construction Safety Lab

ALLEN, TX — Collin College recently held a dedication ceremony for its new construction safety lab, sponsored by McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. McCarthy is announcing its five-year sponsorship of the safety lab at Collin College’s Technical Campus in Allen, Texas. The safety lab will offer hands-on educational opportunities to students in the construction management program.

The construction management program is a “two plus two,” where students earn an associate degree after their first two years with the option to continue to pursue a bachelor’s degree. The lab will serve to build a pipeline of talent for the construction industry and offer construction students real-world learning opportunities. McCarthy will provide guest lectures and demonstrations at the lab, as well as programs taught by female leaders from McCarthy’s Partnership for Women, a national resource group focused on supporting women in the industry.

McCarthy has been recognized by the Association of General Contractors as the safest large contractor in the country and emphasizes the importance of safety for its employees and trade partners, leading the industry in safety by implementing new measures and technologies including digitizing equipment checks, heat sensing technology, the use of drones in potentially dangerous situations, and mental health initiatives.
