Tillyard Management Inc. is pleased to announce that we have achieved the BOMA BESt Level 2 designation at Harbour Centre, 910 Government Street. This is the result of an ongoing and concerted effort to go green and achieve management excellence in environmental and energy performance. Since 2012, when we began upgrading our lighting and plumbing system, we have saved over $215,000 in electrical consumption and over $50,000 in water conservation (see previous post).
According to BOMA, Level 2 certified buildings meet all of the BOMA Go Green Best Practices, which is the requirement for BOMA BESt Level 1, but it also achieves a score of 70%-79% on BOMA’s Go Green Plus test. In order to meet this goal, our building managers supplied BOMA with extensive data on 910 Government Street’s consumption of energy over the period of one year to prove that it is meeting BOMA’s energy consumption benchmarks.
BOMA, the Building Owners and Managers Association of Canada is “the voice of the Canadian commercial real estate industry” (see BOMA Canada). It is a critical organisation for the promotion of best practices and is a major advocate for change on issues of national concern.
