JAM recently worked with two BOMA Fort Lauderdale/Palm Beaches award-winning property managers to submit their Southern Region TOBY® awards package.
The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY®) Award is the commercial real estate industry’s highest recognition honoring excellence in commercial building management and operations in specific categories of building type or size. For an opportunity to win a BOMA International TOBY Award, a property must first win both local and regional competitions. It is an opportunity to showcase the real estate asset’s strengths and gain recognition for best-in-class operations and management with the most prestigious and comprehensive award of its kind in the commercial real estate industry.
A team of industry experts judge award packages based on a written narrative that includes a comprehensive description of management practices in the areas of:
- Building Operations and Management
- Life Safety Security Risk Management
- Training Education, Energy
- Environmental / Sustainability / Health & Wellness,
- Tenant / Occupant Relations / Community Involvement
Each building class has unique submission requirements.
