Cashman Equipment Company made its move to Henderson official by breaking ground on a new corporate headquarters at 3300 St. Rose Parkway in Henderson, Nev., July 12.

The seven building campus will be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold-certified by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and is scheduled for completion in late 2008.

The LEED Gold certification is one of the highest designations a project receives for sustainability. The sustainability, or environmental consciousness, is rated on a point system by the USGBC and is based on how efficiently a building uses energy, water, and materials, as well as how low the impact of the facility is on the surrounding environment.

The new headquarters will use a geothermal, energy-savings system to heat and cool all seven buildings. A 450-ft. well beneath the property will use the earth’s own constant temperature, meaning the facility will use 45 percent less energy than a standard structure of the same size. Cashman’s conservation efforts will not be limited to energy, however; its new facilities also will conserve 20 percent more water through efficient irrigation, retention ponds, and low-flow fixtures throughout the buildings.

“Progress is a vital part of any business, but progress without regard for the future is short-sighted. We believe LEED sustainability is a responsibility to our customers, employees, and the environment,” said MaryKaye Cashman, chairman and CEO of Cashman Equipment.

Cashman began planning for the new headquarters more than a year ago with SH Architecture, a local company with a history of working on sustainable designs, and Burke & Associates, a fixture in the green building industry.

The company publicized its intentions to relocate last November, citing a need for more space at its current location on East Craig Road in North Las Vegas.

Cashman Equipment reviewed a number of options before purchasing the Henderson property last year for $28.6 million.
