Building Responsibly

Paying it Forward

At McCourt, we are dedicated to building responsibly and giving back.

Building Communities
Improving the communities in which we live and work is a McCourt commitment. We frequently donate equipment, materials, and personnel free of charge or below-cost for community improvements. Recent projects include:

  • Habitat for Humanity in Whitman, MA
  • Home expansion for needy children in Brockton, MA
  • Grammar school playground in Hingham, Ma
  • Church playground in North Andover, MA

Cleaning Our Cities
On May 14th, 1984, Richard McCourt was featured alongside Mayor Raymond Flynn on the front page of the Metro Section of the Boston Sunday Globe. McCourt Construction had partnered with laborers’ Local 223 and community residents to cleanup several Boston neighborhoods. McCourt donated 8 dump trucks, 16 front end loaders, 12 pickups and encouraged its employees – from management to field laborers – to participate. Mayor Flynn praised the effort for showing “a commitment to the people in this neighborhood and to the people in this city.” A full text of the article can be accessed here.

Since then McCourt Construction has made a habit of supporting efforts to clean and maintain our urban areas. Recent examples include:

  • Cleaner Greener Quincy – Quincy, MA
  • Braintree Beautification Day – Braintree, MA
  • DCR Park Serve Day – Boston, MA


The Dorchester Vietnam Veterans MemorialRecognizing Our Nation’s Heroes

McCourt recognizes and appreciates the contributions of our nation’s veterans. On several occasions, McCourt has organized volunteer personnel and labor, and donated equipment and materials to erect memorials to these heroes. Prominent examples include the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorials in Cambridge, Somerville and Dorchester, MA.

Training Tomorrows Contractors TodayTraining Tomorrow’s Contractors Today

McCourt Construction is actively involved in supporting the education of tomorrow’s engineers and contractors. McCourt Construction has endowed a scholarship through The Utility Contractors of New England (UCANE) in the memory of our third-generation CEO, the late Frank McCourt. In addition, the McCourt family recently established a permanently endowed scholarship at Boston College. And, every year McCourt Construction employs a lucky group of co-op students from the Wentworth Institute of Technology and Northeastern University for on-the-job training in engineering and construction roles.
