Portland, OR is one of the country's leading cities when it comes to sustainability, and TMT Development is proud to call it home. It is an incubator for all things green - from city wide composting programs to our substantial bicycle commuting infrastructure and mass transit system. From this culture comes TMT's commitment to doing our part to improve our city but also to serve as an example to other cities and developers across the country.

As a growing IT consulting firm based in Portland, we welcomed the opportunity to help TMT in 2008. Their desire to "do it right the first time", focus on security and reliability was a perfect match with our IT values. We support TMT's servers, firewalls, desktops, mobile users and building control systems. We respect and work well with Robert and the entire TMT team.
