Strength of purpose, capacity for service

Dedicated to shaping a better community, Daniel and its employees demonstrate strength of purpose and capacity for service through various civic endeavors and environmental stewardship.

Daniel has a proven track record as steward of the environment with its sustainable development practices. The company has earned certifications from U.S. Green Building Council LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), NAHB Green (National Association of Home Builders Green Building Standard) and the Audubon International Gold Signature Program.

Grand River, Daniel and USS Real Estate’s 6,500-acre master-planned community, was the first development in Alabama to become a registered member of the Audubon International Gold Signature Program. Working closely with Audubon International, the development team prepared a comprehensive environmental master plan to ensure the project was designed in a sustainable manner, taking into consideration indigenous plant species, wildlife habitats, conservation and natural resource management. The master plan shapes the project’s environmental and architectural vision and sets forward guiding principles for long-term sustainability.

Recognizing the importance of giving back to the community, Daniel and its employees dedicate time and resources to support important community initiatives including United Way, The Firehouse Shelter and Piedmont Park Conservancy.
