McKinstry Expands Arizona Market Presence

Steve Frost joins McKinstry as Southwest Regional Operations Director; Energy & Technical Services team strengthened with new hires and promotions

PHOENIX (Dec. 18, 2018) — McKinstry hired Steve Frost to lead the company’s operations in Arizona, Nevada and the greater Southwest Region. Frost delivers a unique mix of energy performance contracting expertise and the ability to look long-term at capital budget and facility condition needs to drive value for clients across all building lifecycle stages. He is a seasoned construction and energy services executive with more than 30 years of experience serving the Phoenix market.

“McKinstry is in an ideal position to work with clients in a way that maximizes immediate and long-term value across their facility assets,” said Frost. “The company takes a holistic, integrated approach that starts by assessing facility and asset condition, identifying both current and future needs. The collaborative approach enables clients to better prioritize capital improvements and maintenance expenditures during budget planning. The process centers on actionable data, which stays up to date as a living resource, going well beyond static reports that do nothing but sit on the shelf. That ability to deliver action and long-term value is what attracted me to McKinstry.”

McKinstry is a national leader in construction, mechanical contracting and energy services. The company established its Phoenix office as its Southwest Region hub in 2012 to better serve clients spanning K-12 school districts, higher education and universities, municipalities, healthcare and private industry. Multiple recent new hires and promotions have strengthened the Southwest Region team, including:

“McKinstry has worked with top universities, school districts, hospitals and private companies across Arizona and Nevada, demonstrating how energy projects can improve and adapt existing buildings to meet shifting occupant needs and expectations,” said Leslie Larocque, Vice President for Energy and Technical Services for McKinstry’s Mountain Regions. “We’re demonstrating our commitment to Arizona and the Southwest Region by deepening our bench of local expertise with a strong group of professionals that share McKinstry’s focus on cutting waste throughout the built environment.”
