Advancing Green Building Construction

High performance. Sustainable. Green. For McCarthy, each of these concepts goes hand-in-hand with being a better builder—taking care of every community we serve. Setting new standards for green building construction. Promoting buildings that are environmentally responsible places to do business. And, operating our own company in the same way.

As a green construction company—one of the top 20 in the nation, McCarthy strives to meet community and national standards in high performance building. Creating innovative structures that blend form with function, in harmony with the environment. Through leadership in the greater green movement, with the U.S. Green Building Council, McCarthy employees are active participants in the green dialogue. In addition, our in-house green training program ensures all McCarthy builders are at the forefront of this ever-changing industry.

We believe the choices we make are not just for today...not just for us, or our clients. The choices we make will leave a legacy for those who will follow us and create new footprints on this earth. Our advanced green building construction systems and services do just that.

Our Green Projects

Viable, Sustainable Building Solutions

Today, many talk about green building construction as if it were a new idea. At McCarthy, our focus has always been on high performance. More than a decade ago, our McCarthy Green Team formalized our in-house green knowledge network to further capture these best practices for green construction management. Today, McCarthy employs over 400 LEED Accredited Professionals—each one actively pursuing and applying high performance and LEED construction principles to help McCarthy make a significant environmental difference.

Our commitment to green building construction revolves around four basic principles:

  1. Weave sustainability into the fabric of all company operations to reduce our carbon footprint
  2. Encourage all clients and partners to incorporate sustainable design and construction methods regardless of project goals
  3. Bring viable, green building construction solutions to the table
  4. Educate and train our employees in sustainable construction best practices and provide the tools for them to lead the way
