Making a Difference

We believe in the idea of community in every sense of the word. We build upon local values and give back to the area, all in the spirit of community partnership. In fact, our homebuilders have received national recognition for philanthropic projects and social outreach efforts. But our helping hand doesn’t stop there.

We’re leading the way in sustainability and environmentally appropriate business practices, because we believe in the collective responsibility to conserve resources and leverage emerging technologies to reduce, recycle, reuse and innovate.

After all, improving communities is more than creating well-designed homes – it’s also about being a responsible neighbor and extending a helping hand at every opportunity.

Sustainability in our Homes

Our commitment to sustainability began more than 10 years ago – not just for the planet and its resources, but to address the need for every family who wants their home to be as healthful, comfortable, and cost-efficient as possible.

Each of our regional homebuilding brands proudly participates in LivingSmart® – a comprehensive program involving the development, design, construction and ongoing operation of high-performing homes resulting in cost-savings for our homeowners and a better environment for their families.

LivingSmart homes are designed with these 4 core components in mind:


Features that foster healthy living and cleaner air


Technology that reduces utility use and energy bills


Materials that come from recycled and sustainable sources



Features and landscape design that help conserve water usage

Sustainability in our Communities

At TRI Pointe Group, we focus on thoughtful community planning as a key driver to creating healthy communities. It all starts with our approach to land acquisition and land planning. Because land is a finite and precious resource, you could say we’re a bit picky about where we build communities.

We acquire land that is close to employment, transportation corridors, educational centers, and other resources that families look for in a new home community. Equally important is access fresh air, open spaces and exercise, so we plan for parks with walking trails, fitness/recreation amenities and natural habitat preservation to enhance overall wellness and health.

Planning for water conservation, especially in the west, is a top priority in terms of planning, home design and smart building practices. In fact, it’s our standard practice to use natural bio-filtration systems, drought-tolerant plant materials and high-tech irrigation systems. Anything to save water, reduce costs and help the earth breathe a little easier.

Charitable Giving At-A-Glance

We’re always looking for new ways to be a responsible neighbor and extend a helping hand at every opportunity, whether it’s using our homebuilding expertise, resources, relationships or people through local programs like HomeAid.

We give our team members lots of ways to donate their sweat, ingenuity, creativity, laughter, and caring to charitable organizations throughout our regional markets around the nation. When we all work together towards one goal it has a big impact on philanthropic efforts.

At TRI Pointe Group we know that “making a difference” extends beyond the typical business boundaries. Reaching out to communities and establishing philanthropic partnerships epitomizes a deeper commitment to improving people’s lives.

Diversity and Inclusion

TRI Pointe Group believes in the idea that a diverse staff brings diverse ideas to the table. We want to include anyone and everyone that wants to contribute to the mission. To date, we have over 1,000 team members that have helped thousands of home buyers and owners. Our diversity is integral to achieving what we’ve done so far. And as we grow, we’ll be able to help even more.

Our brands are spread across eight states, and our diversity gives us an advantage in helping different kinds of customers with various backgrounds and needs. We embrace our diversity with an open, inclusive, and respectful work environment.
