McGough Construction Celebrates New Raleigh-Durham Operation

McGough Construction Celebrates New Raleigh Office

McGough, a nationally recognized general contractor in commercial construction, is pleased to announce the opening of its new Raleigh-Durham location. With a dedication to fostering relationships and building a vibrant local community, McGough's expansion marks a significant milestone in the company's commitment to making Raleigh-Durham their Southeastern Headquarters.

Led by a partnering-first approach and mastering complex project execution, McGough received increased client interest in their specialty sector experience including the life sciences, advanced manufacturing, pharmaceutical, lab, high-tech, federal, infrastructure and data center spaces.

With the move, McGough also brings a unique approach to construction, operating as a value-focused partner, rather than serving solely as a delivery agent on their projects. This approach to partnership has created thousands of successful experiences for customers across the nation for more than 65 years. Notable clients who benefitted from this approach include Takeda Pharmaceuticals, SkyWater Technology, Cargill, General Mills, 3M, Land O’ Lakes, and Abbott Laboratories.

Dave Rahe, Vice President of Tech, Life Sciences, and Strategic Growth, will lead the new operation, bringing with him a highly decorated team with local and nationwide construction experience.

“In expanding to Raleigh-Durham, more than anything, we are focused on developing authentic personal relationships.  This is a special place with an amazing community of talented people. We see a significant long-term opportunity to positively impact and enrich the region through partnerships and initiatives that give back to this community,” said Rahe. “Throughout McGough’s legacy of putting a focus on people and partnerships, we’ve been able to make tremendous strides in improving local communities where we operate as well as the customers we serve and the people who work with us.”

Rahe and the Raleigh team are already active in several North Carolina community and trade organizations including The North Carolina Life Sciences Organization, NCTech, ABC Carolinas, the Lean Construction Institute Carolinas CoP, The U.S. International Semiconductor Executive Summit, Raleigh Chamber of Commerce and local community organizations.

McGough is headquartered in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, with additional offices throughout Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Texas.

McGough’s Raleigh-Durham office is located at 711 Hillsborough St, Suite 200, Raleigh, NC 27603.
