You won’t find MCL employees on a job site without Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Our hard hats, safety vests, safety glasses, bright shirts, and steel-toed boots may look like a uniform but, to us, it’s much more than that. This gear prevents injury and helps ensure that every employee leaves a job site in the same or better condition than when they arrived.

For many people, Carlisle’s choice would have stifled his career

At MCL Construction, Nancy Benson, 64, has been that woman for nearly 30 years.
Jim Meyers was good at figuring and, in his mind, the numbers weren't adding up at his construction job in the mid-1980s in Omaha.
Meyers was a construction estimator bringing in million dollar jobs in 1987 for Hicks Construction Co., and he had begun to question whether he could bring home bigger paychecks with larger numbers if he made the leap from employee to owner.
