Lucas Toffoli is a Manager in RMI’s Carbon-Free Buildings Practice. He is the project lead for the Advanced Building Construction (ABC) Collaborative, launching with the support of DOE.
The Collaborative’s mission is to catalyze the collective efforts of construction and real estate/buildings industry stakeholders to dramatically accelerate the adoption of high-performance, low-carbon new construction and retrofit solutions that are cost-effective, faster and less disruptive to deliver, and appealing to owners and users.
Previously, Lucas has supported RMI’s development of New York State’s Carbon Neutral Buildings Roadmap with NBI and NYSERDA.
Before joining RMI, Lucas worked for Cummings Properties, a vertically integrated, design-build-manage real estate development company in the Boston area. There, he led sustainability and energy efficiency efforts across the firm’s portfolio, in addition to performing various operational and construction management roles. He has also worked on commercial development projects for Sares Regis Group of Northern California, a development management firm in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Lucas’ prior professional experience spans business strategy consulting for life sciences clients (including five of the world’s top ten companies in this sector), architecture, building operations, and coaching. He has worked on three continents and in four languages.
