We exist to serve by shaping futures. Tilden-Coil believes deeply in sustainable practices and has the knowledge and resources to support our clients’ efforts in the direction of LEED Certification, alternative energy, and net zero energy projects.
We uniquely understand the importance of sustainability and embrace innovative design/building practices which allow increased efficiency and conservation. Tilden-Coil has adopted a policy to utilize environmental friendly practices in our operations whether our clients are seeking formal recognition or not.
We also understand what clients expect in regards to quality construction and functional facilities. Bringing Tilden-Coil on board early in the design phase allows for a more efficient design, extensive cost/benefit analysis on the life-cycle of systems and materials going into the new facility, coordination and constructability and ultimately a successful project within budget and schedule. We plan, manage and provide solutions that meet our client’s goals and objectives. Our staff is mindful of how various aspects of construction must interface with the “green” building process and how even the smallest efforts make a difference in the environment.
Tilden-Coil’s Green Committee was formed by employees who are passionate about conservation and passionate about facilitating an industry-wide shift in the way we think about “sustainability”. Lead by our Sustainability Director, the Green Committee exists to guide our overall company direction through continuing education, pragmatic solutions, discipline and creativity.
In 2013, Tilden-Coil Constuctors was awarded LEED certification for our corporate headquarters.
The Old City Hall building, built in 1924, served the City as the first municipally owned City Hall for Riverside from 1924 to 1975. In 1986 the building received a historic renovation and then became the headquarters for Riverside based builder, Tilden-Coil Constructors.
In pursuing certification, the sustainability committee at Tilden-Coil evaluated every operation and maintenance practice currently being used and determined what modifications would be necessary to achieve certification and operate in a sustainable manner. Purchasing, cleaning, recycling and waste disposal practices were all carefully evaluated and improved to accommodate a more sustainable environment.
On July 11, 2013, the USGBC Inland Empire Chapter presented Tilden-Coil Constructors with their certification and the plaque that hangs in the foyer of the historic building signifying this milestone accomplishment.
