BEYOND THE BUILDING ITSELF.
We are in the business of creating places that people call home. Community is our Company’s north star, and whether we are building homes, or building relationships, Quarterra is committed to doing the right thing for the right reason to better the lives of others and protect the environments in which we build for all of our stakeholders.
Respect is the bedrock that has grounded our Company since inception. This core value is the foundation for all that we do, and permeates all aspects of our business, impacting not only the land we build on, but the communities we serve and the Associates we employ.
At Quarterra, we proudly integrate environmentally friendly and energy efficient features into 100% of our newly developed properties. Starting at the concept phase, and from construction to ongoing management, our approach is to build with the future in mind. Through ongoing energy audits, and monitoring, sustainability doesn’t end at construction completion for us.
100% of our newly developed properties contain sustainable building products and energy efficient smart home technology that we consider standard for all Quarterra communities.
Monitoring Our Impact
Quarterra leverages ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, along with other sustainability-driven technology platforms for 100% of our operating portfolio to monitor and assess energy output and efficiencies.
Our proprietary and robust Environmental Management System implements consistent standards and procedures to evaluate, promote and monitor environmental sustainability and feasibility for each of our ground-up developments.
We are committed to supporting the betterment of our Associates and the communities in which we live and work. For our Associates, we create opportunities for open communication and career development that bring our teams together to collaborate, inspire, and celebrate each other’s successes and diversity. For our communities, we take pride in giving back with both our time and financial support at the local level through various charities and philanthropies that impact and serve those in need.
Investing in Our People
Our success starts and ends with our people. We are focused on attracting and retaining top talent, and promoting from within. We accomplish this through prioritizing Associate engagement and training, offering competitive and comprehensive benefits packages, and inspiring our Associates to grow with us.
Through advocacy and volunteerism, we not only change the lives of others, but we also change our own in the process. By being a good neighbor, we make lasting impacts on local communities across the country.
Committed to Diversity & Inclusion
We believe in the fair and equitable treatment of all our Associates. We value the unique contributions and perspectives offered by a diverse workplace, and are committed to providing equal employment opportunities for all Associates and potential Associates. We treat others with respect, and value everyone’s input. Quarterra has zero tolerance for discrimination and harassment, and maintains a workplace free of both. We celebrate our differences and welcome diversity.
Health and Well-Being
Our goal of providing great places to live and valuable services should never come at the expense of the health and safety of our Associates or residents. We are dedicated to creating great places to work and live.
Responsible business practices are integral to our success and our ongoing operations. Ethical business practices are a part of who we are, and fundamental to building lasting relationships with our associates, residents, and capital partners worldwide. From managing risk, to ensuring the utmost transparency, Quarterra is dedicated to safeguarding the trust of all our stakeholders through engagement, communication, and responsiveness.
Business practices rooted in integrity and transparency are essential to the continuity of our business and the preservation of lasting relationships with our stakeholders and business partners.
In order to ensure standardization and consistency across the entire Quarterra platform, we developed robust and proprietary internal protocols that encourage collaboration and best practices with the end-goal of delivering flawless execution.
Quarterra has dedicated resources and protocols in place to manage risk across all spectrums of our business. We manage, test, and continually improve our systems to ensure the highest standards of security and risk mitigation.
