GCS PNG Logomcnw_logo


GCS and MCNW have formed a joint venture to take advantage of the unique capabilities of each company. Together we have over 60 years’ experience in both public and private arenas. MCNW shares its specific experience in new construction, renovation, remodeling and repair together with our unique understanding of “Team/Design-Build,” having been a pioneering advocate of the process.

Our joint experience allows us to self-perform a majority of the work including project management, field supervision, concrete construction, exterior and interior wood framing, miscellaneous and structural steel, interior wood finishes, low voltage systems, including security systems, final punch list and close out procedures while coordinating all the civil, mechanical, plumbing and electrical requirements.


Diversified Construction Specialists

GCS/MCNW’s services cover the spectrum from repairs and maintenance to multi-million dollar new construction projects, and construction management to team-build solutions. This multifaceted structure benefits your own project two ways.

First, it helps us understand your concerns and speak your language, which we accomplish through direct and honest communication. We work closely with architect and owner alike to ensure everyone’s needs and concerns are addressed to satisfaction.

Secondly, our diversity enables us to look at your project from a number of perspectives many other contractors don’t even consider. These insights often result in structural and economic solutions that more accurately meet the specific goals set for your project.
