Joining ARC’s team of facilities evaluators in 2022 is Carol Orona, a passionate and innovative architectural designer who specializes in “green,” high-performance and passive-solar construction. She has advanced knowledge in building science, design, and construction leading to structures that surpass international energy codes and incorporate water conservation and healthy indoor environments. Structures like these use up to 50 percent less energy (“net zero” with solar) and up to 40 percent less water than standard construction.

Ms. Orona’s leadership and innovation gained outstanding national recognition when Home Innovation Research Labs named her a National Green Building Standard Legacy Green Partner of Excellence. At the time she received this prestigious honor in the growing field of “green building,” she was one of only 11 builders in the United States to hold the distinction.

From 2006 through 2021, Ms. Orona wore two hats – as leader of both the innovation & sustainability division and the sales & marketing department – at a home-building company in Albuquerque. Before that, she spent 10 years running her own residential design firm.

A longtime resident of New Mexico, having been born and raised in the state, Ms. Orona has served for more than
20 years as a board member and officer of the Loma del Rey Neighborhood Association, a nonprofit organization representing 1,000 households in the District 7 Coalition of Neighborhoods of the City of Albuquerque.
