BOMA 360 EXPANDS INTO SOUTH AMERICA AS NUMBER OF DESIGNATIONS AWARDED REACHES 1,000 WORLDWIDE

WASHINGTON, D.C. – February 17, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — In the fourth quarter of 2014, the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International conferred the BOMA 360 Performance Program® designation upon 58 properties in commercial real estate markets around the globe, including, for the first time, in South America, with the designation of the Connecta Modulos A y B Building in Bogotá, Colombia. Last year saw the first buildings outside the U.S. awarded the prestigious BOMA 360 label, and the program continues to expand its reach into more than 60 markets worldwide.

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. Since the program’s inception, more than 1,000 designations have been conferred.

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 CoStar, Kingsley Associates? and BOMA’s Experience Exchange Report.

“BOMA International is pleased to see that the BOMA 360 designation, which already serves as the standard of excellence across every aspect of commercial building operations and management in the U.S., is now being embraced by the global real estate community,” commented BOMA International Chair John G. Oliver, BOMA Fellow, managing principal for Oliver & Company. “No matter where a building is located, the BOMA 360 Performance Program offers building owners, managers and tenants substantial benefits and a significant return on investment.”

BOMA 360 designated buildings are required to renew their designation every three years. The new class of BOMA 360 buildings includes the following properties (* denotes renewal):
