At T.B. Penick, we're committed to building a green future and incorporating sustainability into every job, as well as into our everyday work environment. We integrate green techniques, environmentally friendly materials, and recycling and disposal processes into all our projects. We take pride in making design and architectural quality a cornerstone of our work, and with in-house LEED-accredited professionals on our project management staff, we bring sustainable construction expertise to every jobsite.

We have taken steps to promote sustainable approaches to design, construction and recycling within the building industry by advocating best practices, pioneering innovative methods and inspiring developers, architects, engineers and contractors to adopt sustainable solutions for all building projects. Yet we also realize that sustainable construction solutions need to reach beyond their immediate environmental impact and deliver social and economic performance as well as construction excellence.

Since its founding in 1905, this local firm has become an industry leader and one of the top contractors in America, working in all 50 states and on three continents. Four generations of Penicks have provided strategic guidance and hands-on involvement in every aspect of the company’s business. Today, President Tim Penick and CEO Marc Penick continue the family’s principles of creativity, innovation, integrity, accountability and responsibility.

TBP has built a reputation for providing first-rate service to every client. Using design-build methodology, TBP can serve as a client’s single source of responsibility for structural design, engineering, construction and project management. This creates a seamless experience and ensures that projects are completed on time and on budget, saving taxpayers and project owners many millions of dollars.

TBP has become known for the construction of landmark projects in San Diego, including Sea World, Balboa Park, the San Diego Convention Center and nearly 4,000 recreational, religious, educational, military and civic structures. Elsewhere in the country, we have participated in the construction of the gargantuan MGM Mirage CityCenter in Las Vegas and the renovation of the historic Coney Island Boardwalk in New York.

Two of TBP’s design-build projects were the first civic structures in San Diego to receive LEED certification, the nationally accepted standard for design and construction of high performance, environmentally sustainable buildings. Today, nearly 90 percent of our work is LEED registered, with many key projects at LEED Gold or Silver standard. The MGM CityCenter project in Las Vegas earned six LEED Gold ratings from the U.S. Green Building Council. An innovative BEQ at Camp Pendleton and a new Child Development Center at Naval Base Point Loma are other current standout LEED projects.
