W ith expertise and experience in general contracting, design/build, construction management and program management, McTech Corp. has exhibited its talents nationwide since its founding in 1997. The company, located at 8100 Grand Ave., has served federal, state, municipal, educational, industrial, commercial and health care clients, and now boasts annual billing of $150 million.

It has also formed McTech Foundation, whose mission is to support programs and initiatives to develop emerging busi-nesses and offer educational assistance to disadvantaged urban-core youth.
