Chris “Carsh” Carcia has been with SC Builders almost since the beginning, joining the team in 2001. He’s committed to success and progression: “What motivates me is waking up each day and being better than I was the day before. Doing it right even if no one knows the difference.”
“What I love about construction is that if someone needs something to live in, or work in, or they need to cross over something, or around something, or through something, I can build it.” We certainly want Chris in our zombie apocalypse survivor camp!
Some of his favorite SC projects include work for Sony Interactive Entertainment (PlayStation) HQ office TI and sound design studios in both San Mateo and Los Angeles, as well as the offices for game developer Naughty Dog in Santa Monica.
I’m proud of SC Builders because as a company we are the utmost professionals, and we care about the product we put out. Leadership will go the extra mile, no matter what: they care about the big picture. We do the right thing every time.
