Trinity Management LLC (TMLLC) provides property management services to non-profit and for-profit developers of rental housing and commercial real estate throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. One of TMLLC’s precepts is a focus on sustainable living, which it believes is the keystone to a better future for individuals and communities. With a specialization in management of urban communities, TMLLC is revitalizing neighborhoods by enhancing the lives of residents and neighbors, strengthening local commerce, and fostering opportunities for positive growth. TMLLC demonstrates its commitment to sustainable living through attention to the maintenance of its portfolio, implementation of recycling programs, and education on energy awareness and efficiency for staff, commercial tenants, and residents.
To achieve the goals of the Better Buildings Challenge, TMLLC is developing a company-wide plan to identify, implement, and monitor energy reduction strategies across its portfolio. The plan will begin with assessing lighting alternatives and water saving devices. TMLLC will concurrently institute Green Capital Needs Assessments (GCNAs) for its entire portfolio. The GCNAs will be used as a guide to identify, analyze, and prioritize larger-scale energy reduction options for major building systems incorporating alternate efficient energy sources. CEO Kate Franco noted that promoting sustainable lifestyles is the best path forward for businesses and individuals: "Providing energy-efficient buildings and reducing our carbon footprint will benefit everyone by providing less costly systems and a better environment for generations to come."
