Organizational Vision


While sustainable design, construction, and facility management practices are relatively new disciplines, DOC has already gained significant experience using sustainable practices as both a property owner and construction manager.

As part of The O’Connell Companies – a leading real estate developer, property owner and manager in the region – DOC is sensitive to the owner’s perspective relative to issues and economic benefits gained through sustainable practices. With its affiliates, The O’Connell Companies is currently the second largest recycler of human waste in the United States, and is owner and manager of several hydroelectric generating facilities. As an active property management company, O’Connell’s subsidiary, Appleton Corporation, is responsible for carrying out sophisticated recycling programs in communities throughout the region. Through O’Connell’s subsidiaries, DOC has developed strong working relationships with regional recycling companies. Our commitment to efficient resource use and recovery began over thirty years ago, and we believe that tangible investment and vision fully differentiates our company.
