Companies and individuals in B.C.’s commercial real estate industry were lauded for their superior service on May 20th at the BOMA BC Awards of Excellence.
The virtual gala featured a choice of five networking lounges and a photo booth. Keynote speaker Gregg Brown kicked off the formal segment of the event with a presentation on how to adapt for the future of work. Emcee Fred Lee then turned attention to the seven awards, presented by the staff of BOMA BC.
Known as the ‘TOBYs’, The Outstanding Building of the Year Award is the highest achievement for an existing building. It examines everything from tenant relations to sustainability. This year’s program was complemented with the Building Operations Team of the Year (with a focus on the people who operate buildings); Tenant Improvement of the Year (recognizing the best renovation project); Pinnacle Awards in the Above & Beyond category (customer-service related); and Member of the Year (for the volunteer who contributed to the success of the association or industry).
Most of the winners are now eligible to compete at the national level of competition, organized by BOMA Canada.
