For the last seven years, Corcoran Management has been a pioneer in the New England multifamily scene when it comes to promoting and executing "energy efficiency" at our apartment communities. The past few decades have seen increased education and the ever-growing importance of sustainability and the protection of the environment and ozone. Whether it’s the construction of a new luxurious apartment community or the revitalization of an older community, Corcoran’s construction and renovation practices are focused on using recyclable materials, producing minimal pollutants, and using energy-star approved appliances.
John Corcoran, our Energy-Efficiency Manager, has been working hard these last few years to increase Corcoran’s sustainable footprint in the multifamily industry. Canterbury Towers, an affordable based apartment community in Worcester, MA joins publically-managed communities from cities such as Denver, Houston, Atlanta, and Newport News as nationwide leaders in environmentally efficient multifamily design. Canterbury served as one of Corcoran’s “showcase projects” to demonstrate practices in using lighting, HVAC, and solvents that are more beneficial for the environment.
We are honored to be recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy and are privileged to be looked at as a leader in making the multifamily industry more sustainable. With LEED certified communities such as Parkside Commons, The Commons at SouthField Highlands, and now The Commons on The Green, Corcoran Management will continue to invest resources towards sustainable building practices! Stay tuned for more updates on our future “green” initiatives.
