Sustainability

Specht Development and its affiliated entities are committed to protecting the environment and implementing sustainable practices and technologies. We strive to reduce the long-term ecological impact of our business operations while still delivering the best product possible to clients.

Whether the project is new construction, renovating an existing building, or managing tenant improvement construction, Specht consistently works to make a positive contribution to the built environment.

Our sustainable construction strategies focus on the efficient use of energy, water and other resources while reducing waste and pollution.

Being environmentally aware is an on-going responsibility and we encourage our employees, contractors and clients to be equally committed to sustainable building practices and energy efficient management.

The Hillsboro Civic Center, a five-story Class A office building,HCC Monument Sign 2 Narrow is 42% more energy efficient and consumes 38% less water than the average building of its size. Specht was the developer on the 168,436 square-foot project which was completed in 2005.
