McCree Furthers Commitment to Go Green

ORLANDO, Fla. (June 6, 2008) – In keeping with a company-wide initiative launched in January, McCree General Contractors & Architects announces another step forward in their comprehensive plan to go green.

By the end of the year, McCree has set a goal to qualify each project manager, architect and executive level construction employee in Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, or LEED, accreditation.

Michael Waldrop, Vice President of Construction and part owner of McCree, recently earned his LEED endorsement. Waldrop is the second McCree professional to achieve this official recognition.

This qualification, recognized by the United States Green Building Council, promotes design and construction practices geared towards reducing energy usage and promoting healthier environments and introduces a renewed commitment by McCree to emphasize and implement green practices.

Tom Griffin, AIA, Vice President of Architecture and part owner of McCree, received his accreditation in late 2007. Together, they represent the company’s allegiance to constructing a staff of LEED-qualified professionals.

“In doing this, not only are we leaving a green footprint on the Central Florida community, we are also supporting a personal, corporate comprehensive commitment to go green. More importantly, this will help guarantee that we’re meeting environmental goals in both design and construction.”

Currently in its 82nd year, McCree, Inc. provides concept to completion design-build services for numerous project types and serves as Central Florida’s oldest design-build firm. With more than 1,000 clients, McCree is a truly integrated design-builder employing architects, engineers, and contractors all under one roof.
