Sustainability: Beyond The Building Site

Interest in sustainable practices has been growing rapidly for more than a decade. Companies across various industries have launched Green initiatives to improve their environmental performance and respond to the concerns of their employees, customers, and local communities. We are committed to following the tenets of Green building before, during, and after each project. TRC is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council – the national leader in Green building programs and education.

We Build 'Green'

We apply Green practices in our daily work efforts with energy efficient offices, a corporate recycling program, management of vehicles for fuel economy, and ENERGY STAR® compliant office equipment.

Benefits of building green include:

  • Environmental: Enhance and protect ecosystems and biodiversity, improve air and water quality, reduce solid waste, and conserve natural resources
  • Economic: Lower operating costs, increase asset value and profits, increase employee productivity and satisfaction, and optimize life-cycle economic performance
  • Health & Community: Enrich air, thermal, and acoustic environments, further occupant comfort and health, minimize strain on local infrastructure, and contribute to overall quality of life
