We create green spaces.

Sustainable development is part of our DNA. In fact, Gilbane Development Company has a long history of commitment to environmental responsibility in our real estate projects, and beyond.

Our commitment to sustainability runs deep. In fact, our Chairman and CEO, Bob Gilbane, is a past president of the Nature Conservancy of Rhode Island, and has received its “Commitment to Conservation” award for his preservation work.

We are devoted to incorporating sustainability into our buildings and communities— whether we’re addressing U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) requirements for LEED® certification, employing green practices for cost savings throughout your operation, or promoting the most sustainable home building methods in the industry.

In addition to our partnerships with ENERGY STAR® and LEED for Homes, we have a dedicated Sustainability Council and Green Team that shares knowledge and best practices with Gilbane Building Company. It’s all part of our effort to have you seeing green in the best possible ways.

We walk the walk when it comes to environmental stewardship:

Enhancing communities, enhancing lives

We make it a point to understand the overall context of a community, so that our developments improve the lives of those who live and work there. While much of our work is geared toward fulfilling a need, we take care to add other improvements along the way.

We care about the details that go into creating great places. Whether it’s architecture that complements a community and its surroundings, magnificent landscaping and sustainable design, or selecting and commissioning a custom piece art or sculpture, we know that these refinements remain part of a community long after we’ve completed a project.

A sample of the extra touches you’ll find at Gilbane Development:

  • At 257 Thayer, we worked with the College Hill Neighborhood Association, Providence Preservation Society, and city of Providence to deliver a design that respects the community and serves the student population. We also commissioned a sculpture of “Rafi,” an Indian Rhino, to serve as a whimsical mascot to greet residents. The project has since sponsored a community “parklet” on Thayer Street.
  • Our Surfside Condominium project in Narragansett, Rhode Island features a “Waves of Narragansett” stone wall depicting the history of the town of Narragansett crafted by local artists.
  • In Anacortes, Washington, our San Juan Passage project gave us an opportunity to donate land to the Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve and make a significant contribution toward building the new Guemes Channel Trail.

Our leaders and employees are dedicated to being active partners in our own communities and are proud of the ways we’ve helped strengthen them by working with a variety of organizations, including:

  • Boy Scouts of America
  • Girl Scouts
  • VIPS (Volunteers in Providence Schools)
  • American Red Cross
  • Pentagon Federal Military Foundation
  • The Nature Conservancy
  • YMCA
  • United Way
  • Catholic Relief Services
  • The Providence Foundation
  • Urban Land Institute
