Green Development Solutions
We partner with developers to bring green solutions to projects. As environmental efficient experts, we bring:
PACE financing consulting – With commitment to greener builders we have decided to focus our skills towards this exciting new financial structure to the capital stack of development projects. PACE financing is a way to bring as much as 100% of the financing required
Property management – As seasoned property managers we have experience with both residential and commercial real estate management. We bring BOMA’s RPA experience to our projects as well.
LEED & Energy Star Consulting – As early adopters to USGBC’s LEED Certification process, we have LEED Accredited Professionals on our team as well as Engineers authorized to calculate Energy Star ratings for buildings.
End-of-Life Furniture Management
We are your one-stop furniture management resource. We specialize in end-of-life redistribution and management for your office furniture and equipment. TAG helps corporations make the most out of their furniture liquidation, provides top quality resources to local non-profit organizations, and keeps unnecessary waste from clogging our landfills, polluting our land water and air. The EPA estimates that businesses discard approximately 3 million tons of furniture each year. This results in corporate disposal costs of more than $100 million per year! Our commitment to diverting furniture into positive second-life use will save you both money and hassle.
The office furniture redirection process takes time, patience and detailed expertise. TAG does the heavy lifting of managing your end-of-life furniture redistribution. We inventory and track your furniture resources, find suitable local non-profit partners, manage furniture packing and delivery, and provide you a detailed report with your total financial donation complete with current value estimates and documentation from our non-profit partners. In one move, you can avoid expensive storage and disposal fees, provide valuable resources to needy organizations, and boost your bottom line through positive environmental and social impact.

TAG is committed to developing effective communication protocols on each project. We currently utilize e-mail to communicate, share and exchange information between offices as well as with our partners, clients and consultants. An internet-based interface allows employees to access Google from any computer with internet capability. In addition, the majority of our senior staff have Android or similar mobile technology that allows them to access email while away from the office. TAG also regularly uses Webex technology for data exchange and edit capabilities when dealing with remote clients or team members. We also utilize telephone conferencing formats whenever possible, in an effort to manage meeting time more efficiently and reduce travel expenses.
