TLC Properties

3811 S. Well Street, Suite A-101, Springfield, MO | 417-869-1118

For 34 years, TLC Properties has made a name for itself in 417-land. The property management company, which is a part of Coryell Collaborative Group (CCG), is known for its upscale apartment communities throughout the Ozarks.

CCG strives for excellence not only with its projects, but also its people. Core values of excellence, integrity, biblical principles, unbridled service, generosity and stewardship guide CCG daily.

In 2022, seasoned architect Ime Usukumah joined the group’s construction division, Team C Construction, LLC, as an architect/owner’s representative. In this role, Usukumah works with owner(s) and consultants in the development of properties to ensure that the projects meet design and construction expectations and standards.

“I’ve always been interested in the design of buildings, but I truly enjoy the synthesis of art and the technical aspects of construction,” Usukumah says. “That combination, along with the company’s core values, is why I joined this team.”

Usukumah’s current project, Heritage, is CCG’s most innovative property to date. The Heritage project is currently under construction at the corner of Fremont and Battlefield in Springfield. With 25 years of experience, Usukumah knows every project comes with its own complexities and Heritage isn’t any different. “The biggest challenge right now is the economic volatility due to inflation and supply chain delays,” Usukumah says. “Both contribute to higher costs and availability of construction materials.” However, Usukumah is confident in handling these challenges with the support of the team and depth of his experience.
