In his final year in the NBA, during the 1986–87 season, Carr formed Carr Construction in Portland. The construction company undertakes the fabrication and erection of structural steel for industrial and commercial buildings, including hospitals, schools, parking structures, and high-tech industrial projects.
In its more than 35 years in business, Carr Construction has led and collaborated on a bevy of projects, including the OHSU Tram in Portland, Paul Allen’s Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle, and Providence Park stadium, home to the Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns professional soccer clubs.

Carr Construction has been paramount to the growth of the city of Portland over the last three decades, and its owner is proud of the work it’s done in the city where his NBA career ended, and his business career skyrocketed.

“I’ve been extensively involved with this area…and have seen it grow,” said Carr.
“We have had a lot of investment in the north Portland area, and it’s had a boom in construction lately, raising property values. It’s been great to have been a small part of that.”
