The recent completion of Cashman Equipment Company’s corporate headquarters was recognized with a dedication ceremony on site at 3300 St. Rose Parkway in Henderson. NV. More than three years of planning and one year of construction have culminated in the creation of the largest Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) designated industrial campus in the state of Nevada.
Cashman Equipment, the state’s Caterpillar dealership, hosted keynote speakers MaryKaye Cashman, the company’s chairman and CEO; Mike Pack, Cashman Equipment’s president and COO; James B. Gibson, Mayor of Henderson; Ron C. Hall, SH Architecture’s chairman; Kevin Burke, Burke & Associates’ president and CEO; and James Parker, Caterpillar’s vice president (Americas Division). The event also featured a ceremonial ribbon-cutting by Cashman and Pack.
Cashman Equipment receives points from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for those “green” elements, as well as for how the project affects the local region. During construction, 40% of all materials used came from the local region, and 818 tons, or 11 Cat D10 Track Type Tractors, of construction debris was diverted from local landfills and recycled.
Cashman Equipment will be among the first Caterpillar dealerships in the world to receive LEED certification. The official LEED Gold designation from the USGBC is expected in early summer 2009.
The 308,000 square foot campus enhances Cashman Equipment’s customer service through changes including, greater parts capacity, additional service bays, new component rebuild capabilities, and expanded training areas.
Founded in 1931 by James “Big Jim” Cashman, Cashman Equipment is a full service dealer, providing new and used equipment for sale and rental, as well as parts and service to construction, paving, mining, truck engine, and power system industries throughout Nevada and parts of California. Cashman is one of the largest privately-owned employers in the state. For more information, visit www.cashmanequipment.com.
