SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 2, 2015 – Angeles Garcia-Tapia, a McCarthy’s Building Companies, Inc. project executive in its Northern Pacific Division, was recently honored by the San Francisco Business Times as a 2015 Northern California Real Estate Woman of Influence. A two-time recipient of this award, Garcia-Tapia leads many of McCarthy’s largest hospital building projects throughout the Bay Area. She recently completed Kaiser Permanente’s $1 billion flagship hospital in Oakland, and she is currently overseeing Kaiser’s Specialty Medical Office Building & Cancer Center in Dublin and University of California San Francisco’s Parnassus Clinical Sciences Building and UC Hall Renovation.
“Angeles effectively manages highly complex projects and is well respected by project partners, owners and the communities in which she works,” said Frances Choun, McCarthy’s vice president. “Angeles is not only technically competent, but her passion to deliver successful projects to our clients and community is second to none. She is an advocate for our project teams as their fearless leader and ensures our teams are collaborating to deliver our projects on schedule, within budget and to the client’s highest expectation. She is a champion woman in construction and an inspiration to us all.”

She moved into positions of increasing scope and responsibility, eventually becoming McCarthy’s first female project manager in its Northern Pacific Division and subsequently the first female project executive.
In addition to her accomplishments, Garcia-Tapia is involved in a number of community initiatives. She participated in providing pro bono construction management services to build a tot-lot at Mosswood Park in Oakland, which included working directly with the neighborhood to facilitate design and fundraising efforts. Garcia-Tapia has also participated in programs such as Cypress Mandel Pre-Apprentice Program, mentoring through ACE Program and supporting McCarthy’s SLBE Subcontractors through their project mentor protégé program.
