Build Different

Our focus today is constructing projects to include new healthy sustainable building technologies.

Our Story

MC Building started 40 years ago with a simple vision in mind. Provide the value to homeowners that they need and that they deserve. Now after 40 years and a new generation taking over, MC Building has expanded its horizons to building with modern times in mind. The new times have called for new methods to build the homes and these new methods are being endorsed by many companies interested in supplying MC Building with their products.

With these companies on board, MC Building has been able to make a name for itself by giving homeowners the eco-friendly homes that come loaded with features. Based out of Darien, MC Building has made its way around the Chicagoland area building homes in various neighborhoods and various styles of home. No two MC Building homes will ever be built the same as no two people will live the same lifestyle that these homes are created for.

Why We’re Different

MC Building is not a cookie-cutter home builder. We go above and beyond to provide our customers with the best value for their buck as well as building the home with a modern twist. All of MC Building’s homes include healthy building products that improve not only the quality of the home but the home owner’s quality of life. We use these products in ways that people have never seen before.

How many homes have you been in that utilize healthy building products that make a noticeable difference in the owner’s life? Our products go from infrared saunas all the way to your coffee maker in the morning to behind the scenes with our ventilation systems to breathe healthy air all day long all the way to outside on the roof with our solar panels to cut your electricity cost. This is the MC Building difference, Custom Built with a Healthy Tilt.
