29 Buildings receive BOMA 360 Performance Program® designation

WASHINGTON, DC – January 6, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International today announced the 29 buildings that make up the latest class of buildings to earn the BOMA 360 Performance Program designation. The BOMA 360 Performance Program is a groundbreaking program designed to recognize commercial properties that demonstrate best practices in building operations and management. Since the program’s inception in Spring 2009, 181 buildings have been designated.The BOMA 360 Performance Program evaluates properties on 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.

“Market research indicates that building owners and managers are looking for ways to differentiate  their buildings in the marketplace and be more attractive to tenants,” noted BOMA International Chair Ray H. Mackey, Jr., RPA, CPM, CCIM, partner and chief operating officer, Stream Realty Partners, L.P. “The BOMA 360 Performance Program does exactly that by recognizing outstanding achievement in every area of building operations and management. BOMA 360 designees stand above the crowd as they enhance asset value and set new standards of excellence.”
