Transcontinental Printing Facility
McCarthy's commerical contractors constructed this 338,000-square-foot single-story building with a mezzanine newspaper printing facility.
This is the first industrial facility in the State of California to achieve LEED Silver Certification. The Project Team achieved LEED Silver status by diverting more than 95 percent of total construction waste and surpassing LEED credit requirements for using recycled content and materials. In addition, the facility's energy efficiency resulted in 17 percent more energy savings than required by California State Title 24 and earned a rebate from the "Savings by Design" program.
