The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International discussed the BOMA 360 Performance Program designation upon properties across the globe, including the Akihabara UDX in Tokyo, the second building to earn the BOMA 360 designation in Japan.
“BOMA International is pleased to announce the continued expansion of the BOMA 360 program into Japan, as well as the addition of new properties across North America,” says BOMA International Chair Brian M. Harnetiaux, senior vice president of Asset Management at McCarthy Cook. “In an increasingly global marketplace, building owners and managers value the competitive edge that the BOMA 360 designation gives properties.”
The BOMA 360 Performance Program assesses 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 in 2009, nearly 1,500 designations have been conferred. Earning a BOMA 360 designation offers buildings real-life 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, BOMA Experience Exchange Report data and by Kingsley Associates.
