McCarthy Building Companies Inc., one of the nation’s oldest and largest privately held construction firms, has named Mark Mohning as director of design integration for its Las Vegas office. Mohning brings nearly two decades of diverse qualifications in both owner’s representation and commercial architecture to his new role and will be working with both the Virgin Hotels and Circa project teams.
“Our collaborative and integrated approach to the design phase is part of our commitment to quality,” said Jeff Wood executive vice president of operations for McCarthy Building Companies. “Having Mark bring his background as an architect and as an owner’s rep to our team further strengthens our capabilities and enhances our ability to ensure each client an exceptional experience from preconstruction through project completion.”
Mohning joins McCarthy after having previously served for four years as the owner’s rep for Station Casinos design and construction group where he oversaw projects from conception through construction completion including the $690 million remodel of the Palms Casino Resort where he served as project manager for the majority of the entire low-rise and the sprawling casino.
A licensed architect in the state of Nevada who formerly worked with KGA Architecture for a decade, Mohning has a track record of success and a commercial portfolio with vast experience in large- and small-scale hospitality, healthcare, gaming, high rise residential, entertainment, restaurant, education, detention, corporate headquarters, and public works.
“I’m looking forward to using my unique background as both a licensed architect and owner to bring extensive value to all phases of the project by strengthening the bridge between the general contractor, architect, and the owner,” said Mohning.
