“The fact that companies are putting their entire portfolios through the program is a testament to the value the program provides to tenants, building managers, owners and investors.”
Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 18, 2011
A growing number of commercial real estate firms have committed to earning the BOMA 360 Performance Program® designation for large portions or the entire bulk of their portfolios, including market leaders USAA Real Estate Company, CB Richard Ellis and Brookfield Properties. The BOMA 360 Performance Program, managed by the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International, is a groundbreaking program recognizing commercial properties that demonstrate best practices in building operations and management. Since the program’s launch in 2009, nearly 325 buildings have earned the BOMA 360 designation across 50 markets.
“We created this program to help property managers earn third-party affirmation that they are excelling in all aspects of property management—everything from tenant relations to security to sustainability,” commented BOMA International Chair Boyd R. Zoccola, executive vice president, Hokanson Companies Inc. “The fact that companies are putting their entire portfolios through the program is a testament to the value the program provides to tenants, building managers, owners and investors.”
USAA Real Estate Company and Brookfield Properties have both announced they will put their entire office portfolios through the BOMA 360 Performance Program. CB Richard Ellis leads all companies with BOMA 360 buildings with 42 buildings designated to date. The companies released commitment statements in support of the program:
- “By putting our entire portfolio through the BOMA 360 program, our goal is to reaffirm what we believe we are already doing – driving world class service delivery and execution. We see value in that BOMA 360 helps communicate to our tenants and to our co-investors that we are committed to providing best-in-class service. Further, we believe having this designation will be part of what it means to be a quality property owner and operator.”
USAA Real Estate Company
- “Brookfield Office Properties is pleased to announce that 30 of our office buildings, 56 percent of our U.S. portfolio, have received the BOMA 360 Performance Program designation. BOMA 360 gives Brookfield market advantage because it helps us measure and improve performance against industry best practices. The unique, comprehensive nature of the program means our tenants, prospective tenants and other stakeholders know that a Brookfield BOMA 360 building is operated to the highest standards of excellence across a broad range of criteria. We plan to submit the balance of the Brookfield U.S. portfolio through the BOMA 360 Performance Program over the next year as we continue to reinforce the importance of outstanding achievement in all areas of building operations and management.”
