New York, NY (PRWEB) March 24, 2016
Michael Flatley was selected as the Outstanding Local Member of the Year at the 2016 Building Owners and Managers Association of New York (BOMA/NY) Pinnacle Awards. He was one of three distinguished professionals nominated for the award, and was ultimately chosen due to his twenty-five year track-record of consistent and outstanding contributions made to the industry and the association. His contributions include participating as a panelist for eight BOMA/NY energy seminars, serving as a member of the Energy & Sustainability Committee, advocating for local laws, providing input on green leases and Con Edison steam demand billing, and offering expert advice on NYC’s One City Build to Last initiative to lower green house gas emissions. Currently, Flatley serves as chair of the Pinnacle Awards Renovated Building Subcommittee.
This year’s BOMA/NY Pinnacle Awards ceremony was distinguished by the largest number ever of buildings competing with ENERGY STAR®/LEED® certifications, landmark designations and re-positioning credentials, and an inaugural Grand Pinnacle Award for the highest scoring building in any category. The latest awards also marked the first time buildings from three centuries competed—the oldest dated to 1896 and the newest from 2013. Overall, 20 nominees competed for 11 awards before a packed crowd of more than 650 attendees at Chelsea Piers.
