HOUSTON — McCarthy Cos. has completed Phase I of an expansion project for the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. The project revamped the Glassell School of Art, essentially doubling its size to 40,000 square feet and enabling the school to now serve more than 7,000 students per year. The school links to two gallery buildings and a sculpture garden as part of the redevelopment of a 14-acre portion of the campus. McCarthy self-performed certain aspects of construction, including the casting of 177 unique concrete panels.
