Vancouver, BC, Canada
Buildings has followed Bentall Capital’s exceptional operating practices for years (see Buildings’ January 2003 issue), so it’s no surprise that the company is being recognized in The A List. Others have noticed as well: In June, Bentall Capital received the coveted Developer of the Year distinction from the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP) - only the second Canadian company to be so recognized since NAIOP began its awards program in 1979. Cited as “a leader in both the real estate and general business communities, proven by its ability to outperform no matter what the real estate cycle,” Bentall notes that its strength lies in its “Our Foundation is Service” philosophy. Such strategic and tactical positioning has garnered success in all service lines, as well as consistently positive tenant ratings. Strong financial returns (focused on triple-bottom-line results), environmental stewardship, and community involvement are at the core of the company’s two specialized real estate subsidiaries: Bentall Real Estate Services and Bentall Capital Services. That equates to responsiveness and reliability, and a relentless drive to do things a little bit better each day.
