Patty McCaffrey, LEED AP, BD+C
Patty is no stranger to the construction industry. She has 9 years of experience in construction, however, her passion lies on the Preconstruction side. Patty enjoys working in the early stages of a project to offer solutions to a client that may deliver a project better by some metric whether that be more energy efficient, faster, or more cost effective. She recalls that changing direction in the construction stage to take advantage of new solutions becomes more difficult and more costly than looking ahead towards them. Patty is fairly new to North Carolina but has enjoyed getting more involved in the community and local industry. She is a member of the Professional Construction Estimators Association (PCEA). She has also become active in the Raleigh Talkmasters Toastmasters group. While not at work, Patty has a home studio that keeps her busy. She creates fused glass pieces while paying careful attention to the effects achieved by varying time, temperature and material.
