Record Number of Commercial Properties Earn BOMA 360 Designation

June 20, 2011

​FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 20, 2011) The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International has conferred 66 buildings with the BOMA 360 Performance Program® designation in the second quarter of 2011, making it the largest class of designees since the program’s launch two years ago. To date, more than 300 buildings have earned the BOMA 360 designation, which recognizes commercial properties that demonstrate best practices in building operations and management. The new designees will be recognized in a ceremony during the 2011 BOMA International Conference and The Every Building Show®, held June 27-29 in Washington, D.C.

“With more than 300 buildings in the program, it’s clear that the BOMA 360 designation is a critical tool for helping property professionals bolster tenant retention and increase asset values,” commented BOMA International Chair Ray H. Mackey, Jr., RPA, CPM, CCIM, partner and chief operating officer, Stream Realty Partners, L.P. “The designation has become a symbol in this industry for indicating that a building meets quality benchmarks in every aspect of management and operations.”

The BOMA 360 Performance Program evaluates properties in six major areas of building management: building operations and management; life safety/security/risk management; training and education; energy; environment/sustainability; and tenant relations/community involvement. The comprehensive nature of the BOMA 360 Performance Program means that every aspect of building performance is assessed, and scores are based on how buildings meet an extensive checklist of best practices.

Research indicates that BOMA 360 buildings are market leaders.  According to a recent study conducted by Kingsley Associates, buildings that achieve the BOMA 360 Performance Program designation have higher tenant satisfaction scores in 47 out of 50 categories relating to tenant relations compared to commercial office buildings without the BOMA 360 designation.

The new class of BOMA 360 buildings includes:
