Heavy lifting has begun on the Edward Jones North Campus in St. Louis, as construction of the 9-story office building, 4-story training center and multi-purpose room, which began in early January 2008, shifts into high gear.
George Washington Carver School of Arts and Science in Sacramento Breaks Traditional School “Box” Design Model
Sacramento college-prep high school students (grades 9-12) attended their first day of classes at the George Washington Carver School of Arts and Science, the newest addition to the Sacramento Unified School District (SCUSD), located at 10101 Systems Parkway, on February 19, 2008. The 45,808-square-foot, eight-building charter school facility is situated on 13 acres and serves a maximum of 500 students. Constructed by McCarthy, the high school represents a mounting trend to revitalize small public high schools in the region. The facility was developed by Regent Development, Inc. and designed by HMR Architects.
With McCarthy’s focus on green building construction and reinforcing sustainable principles in its projects, it makes perfect sense that Nora Calato, McCarthy’s Southwest Region training manager, serve as the 2008 president of Arizona’s chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
McCarthy recently broke ground on the KDC office complex for the new Headquarters for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) in Richardson. The scope of this 1,050,000-square-foot project will include a 15- and a seven-story office tower, as well as a 3,500-car parking structure.
