"We have a terrific track record of letting our client-partners know what their building will look like, what it will cost and how long it will take to build before construction starts."
"We truly appreciate that everyone at Thompson Thrift seems to care as much about our projects and budgets at least as much as we do."
Thompson Thrift's commitment to "green," or sustainable, building and design stems from our core values of service, quality and trust. We understand the importance of environmental responsibility and resource efficiency. Our goal is to integrate these principles into a building's life cycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance and renovation.
We ensure our employees stay abreast of eco-friendly building trends through continuing education and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. The LEED rating system is the national standard for the design, construction and operation of "green" buildings. Nine Thompson Thrift Construction employees are LEED certified.
Thompson Thrift's application of its extensive knowledge of green design and building practices has earned LEED certification for several of our affordable housing projects including:
Spicewood Gardens and Plum Tree Gardens were Indiana's first LEED-certified affordable housing projects when they were built in 2009. In addition, we have completed LEED-certified retail projects for Fortune 500 companies such as Best Buy in Terre Haute and Verizon Wireless in Middletown, Ohio.
Thompson Thrift also adheres to the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star energy performance rating systems. These ratings provide a means for benchmarking the energy efficiency of specific buildings and are used to evaluate the energy performance of buildings and industrial plants. In addition, the rating systems enable the EPA to determine if a building or plant qualifies for Energy Star recognition.
