Indiana-based Pepper Construction says it has promoted Calvin Young to manage the company’s High Performance construction, a move the company says bolsters its full suite of integrated construction services.
“High Performance construction goes beyond sustainability to consider how a building influences the performance of the occupants and how efficiently it operates throughout its lifecycle,” Pepper Indiana president Mike McCann said in a statement. “We believe this is the future of construction and we are excited to have a local resource dedicated to high performance and sustainability who can work hand-in-hand with our company’s national experts.”
Pepper says Young has more than eight years of project management experience, including four years with the company.

During that time, he’s focused primarily on interior renovation projects where Pepper has been engaged early to assist the owner and design team to create collaborative solutions. His involvement in LEED Gold and Silver-certified projects like a recent Indianapolis CBRE Group office build-out led Calvin to develop a strong interest in sustainable and high performance construction. Calvin’s desire to find tangible solutions to reduce construction’s impact on the environment and fulfill a need in the state drew his interest to the position.
In the new role, he will work closely with Susan Heinking, Pepper’s vice-president of sustainable and high performance construction.
“Calvin’s ability to dig into the details and proactively develop solutions collaboratively with the design team and approaching each project from the owner’s perspective to achieve the best value for our clients will serve him well as he brings a new level of expertise in High Performance and Sustainable construction to our Indiana team,” Heinking said. “I look forward to partnering with him to bring fresh, impactful ideas to the benefit of our clients.”
