Our Green Mission & Initiatives

Doing what's right for our buildings and our residents also means being environmentally conscious and committed to a higher standard of care. We believe in preserving the integrity of historical structures and staying true to a property's character and signature details. But to truly be green we commit to investing in energy efficient upgrades while making every attempt to minimize the environmental impact of our work. This green philosophy guides us every day. And with new building projects and adaptive re-use projects on the horizon we are continually researching and incorporating state-of-the-art sustainable technologies, practices and materials that will raise the bar. This higher standard is what every resident can expect from Dominion Properties.

Environmental Impact Initiative

We believe in the history of our city, and while some structures may have become worn and weathered over the years or parcels have been ignored, Dominion Properties promises to positively impact neighborhoods by breathing new life into old buildings and in-fill spaces. We want to transform these pockets of our city and find new uses for vacant properties. This is how we can make the best use of our environmental resources and reduce our carbon footprint.

Environmental Technology Initiative

New technologies are powerful "green" tools. New construction projects, such as Sage on Jackson, provide the opportunity to be true stewards of sustainability with geothermal wells, innovative building structures and flooring systems as well as the ability to design efficient spaces. But, technology also allows us to upgrade the efficiency of existing buildings with new windows and doors, ultra high efficiency boilers, zone valves and insulation. We invest in this technology to extend the life of our buildings, ultimately improving life for our residents.

Environmental Resources Management Initiative

Our environment is precious, so we are committed to reducing our carbon foot print and conserving our resources—light, heat, water and energy. We make choices that benefit our residents and we 'pay it forward' by educating them on the benefits and savings. Our residents receive their water bills so they can understand the building's consumption and help us identify areas of concern. We invest in systems that efficiently heat older buildings and install sensors and timers to manage light levels throughout the day. These and other examples show you we spend a lot of our own energy making sure our buildings use the least amount of resources possible. In doing so, we become better stewards of our planet.
