by Brianna Crandall — November 11, 2016 — The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International conferred the BOMA 360 Performance Program designation this past quarter upon properties across the globe, including the Akihabara UDX in Tokyo, the second building to earn the BOMA 360 designation in Japan. The program continues to expand its reach in more than 70 markets worldwide.
The BOMA 360 Performance Program evaluates 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 tangible 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, in BOMA Experience Exchange Report data and by Kingsley Associates. Building owners and facilities managers value the competitive edge the designation gives, notes BOMA.
