Lowell McCarty founded McCARTY ASSOCIATES
in 1963 with just two employees. The original name of the
company was McCarty Engineering and its office was located
in the basement of Lowells home in Peebles, Ohio.
In 1967, the company was moved
to an office on the second floor of a building on East Main
Street in Hillsboro, Ohio. As the company continued to grow,
it took two more moves before in 1980, it made a home on the
second floor of the building where it is currently located
at 213 North High Street. It has since expanded its operations
to occupy both the first and second floors.
acquired an interest in the firm of Gale Helms Associates,
Inc., located in Washington Court House, Ohio, in 1984. In
1990, in order to better reflect the diversity of the firm
by offering architecture, engineering, and surveying services,
the name was changed from McCarty Engineering to McCARTY
ASSOCIATES. In 1991, Gale Helms Associates, Inc.,
was merged with McCARTY ASSOCIATES and is
now operated as a branch office to serve clientele in the
Fayette and surrounding Counties.
In 2007, a branch office was opened in Loveland
to serve our growing business in the Cincinnati area.
