Tribe Property Technologies Inc. TRPTF is a real estate technology (proptech) company with an expanding portfolio of digital development and management tools for multi-family residential properties in Canada and around the world.

Through mergers, acquisitions and partnerships, the Canada-based company says it’s growing its multi-family real estate portfolio by delivering new technology solutions to make everything from post-construction inspections to rent collection as efficient. and easy as possible.

While Tribe says solving the inefficiencies and miscommunication that plague traditional property management workflows is its primary goal, it also helps reduce the carbon footprint of properties that use its technology. Here’s how Tribe reports making community living as eco-friendly as possible.

Is community living already the greenest option?

The environmental potential of community living isn’t as covered in the press as more fashionable climate solutions like electric vehicles or solar power (which are also useful). Even so, apartment buildings and high-density neighborhoods could provide many environmental benefits that single-family homes do not.

Energy consumption decreases by about half on average compared to a household of the same size in a single-family home. Multi-family living also uses less land per person than single-family homes, freeing up more land for farms or reforestation.

In addition to decreasing land and energy use, community living also creates opportunities for resource sharing. When a multi-family complex shares a laundry room, for example, multiple households can share a handful of washers and dryers, reducing water and energy consumption – while saving money for residents who don’t no longer have to foot the bill of owning and maintaining their own washer and dryer in the unit.

Tribe says it helps maximize that inherent eco-friendliness of community living by creating more opportunities to share resources.

One example is its partnership with Telus Corp. YOU, a major Canadian telecommunications company. Through this partnership, Telus offers bundled internet, phone and TV packages, all of which are ready when a tenant moves in, as Tribe’s newly built communities are already connected and ready to be activated.

Its growing suite of digital tools is intended to make community life easier and more streamlined with services like online rent payment, community platforms and better communication with landlords to get repairs and other issues resolved quickly. .

But it also helps reduce the carbon footprint of condos and apartments by reducing reliance on paper. With online applications, digital lease signing and 24/7 access to securely stored documents and information, Tribe says its proptech solutions virtually eliminate the need to deal with paper.

Sustainable solutions offered through partnerships

The company says it’s also dedicated to finding creative ways to add new eco-friendly options to its growing portfolio of services.

With the Swirling solutions EDY Partnership announcement Last October, for example, Tribe will install Eddy’s smart water monitoring devices at its own properties as well as those of its property developer partners.

Smart devices provide leak detection and water usage monitoring along with real-time alerts to help buildings improve water efficiency while detecting leaks or hazards earlier to reduce water waste and prevent serious water damage.

In another movement, Tribe announcement partnered with Fresh Prep last November and began offering a discounted rate to its communities, giving them more affordable access to Canada’s leading zero-waste meal kit delivery service.

As a zero-waste meal delivery service, Fresh Prep Meals offers seasonal ingredients delivered in reusable packaging that subscribers then return by simply letting them pick them up on their next meal delivery.
