The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International conferred the BOMA 360 Performance Program designation upon 44 properties in major commercial real estate markets across the U.S. in the first quarter of 2013. With this latest class of designees, BOMA 360 now boasts nearly 600 buildings across 57 markets nationwide.
Launched four year ago, the BOMA 360 Performance Program evaluates commercial properties in six major areas: building operations and management; life safety/security/risk management; training and education; energy; environment/sustainability and tenant relations/community involvement. Currently, 570 commercial properties demonstrating best practices in these areas boast the BOMA 360 label.
Earning a BOMA 360 designation offers buildings tangible results, measured through higher tenant retention and satisfaction scores, higher rental rates and documented operations and management savings and efficiencies as reported in designee surveys and by Kingsley Associates and CoStar.
“We are pleased to recognize the latest class of BOMA 360 Performance Program designees for operating at the highest levels of excellence in the commercial real estate industry,” BOMA International Chair Joe Markling, managing director of strategic accounts with CBRE Group Inc., said in a statement. “As demonstrated by the growing number of buildings seeking the BOMA 360 label, building owners and managers clearly value the competitive edge that the designation can give their properties in the marketplace.”
