Top executive: Randy Highland, president, California Region

The largest commercial builder in Orange County, McCarthy Building Companies has a reputation for constructing projects that lead the way in sustainability, including net-zero-energy buildings. The firm has invested in new training for all of its more than 400 LEED-certified professionals and recently was awarded LEED Gold Certification for its Soka Performing Arts Center project, adding to the firm’s list of more than 10 LEED Gold projects. McCarthy also has calculated its own carbon footprint and is working to cut it by 5 percent through a number of approaches, including mandated recycling and encouraging carpooling and public transportation by its staff and subcontractors.

“At McCarthy, we believe that the choices we make today will leave a legacy for future generations and that protecting our environment begins at home,” says Randy Highland, president of the California Region for McCarthy Building Companies. “This is why we have established a green philosophy that not only permeates throughout our own organization but also extends into our communities through the projects that we build.”
