We have both a responsibility and an opportunity to minimize environmental impact by influencing the way buildings are developed. TCC is a leader in making commercial real estate a more sustainable industry. With 35 LEED APs and more than 40 million square feet of LEED-certified projects completed, our company views sustainability as an intrinsic component of Class A development. At the same time, TCC is redefining and broadening sustainability to include economic impacts, wellness, social benefits, transportation and governance. The firm is committed to a comprehensive platform that captures the full benefits of a sustainable approach for both clients and the communities in which they build.
