Setting the commercial real estate industry standard for almost 20 years, the Certificate of Excellence is administered by the 11 BOMA Chapters across Canada each year. The award has set the standard for commercial real estate excellence, celebrating exemplary properties that exceed building management standards and the management teams behind them. The Certificate of Excellence is backed by a rigorous certification program. Entrants must be BOMA BEST® Certified and are subject to an onsite judging by industry peers. Buildings are judged based on completion of a written submission, including the following components:
- Building Description
- Building Standards
- Community Impact
- Tenant Relations & Communications
- Energy Conservation
- Environmental, Regulatory,
- Sustainability & Waste
- Emergency Preparedness & Life Safety
- Training for Building Personnel
The highest scoring property in each Certificate of Excellence category is eligible to further compete nationally and internationally for BOMA Canada’s and subsequently BOMA International’s The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Award.
CD Sonter has helped countless clients receive this recognition at the local, national, and international levels. Notably, in the last five years, we have project managed submissions for the vast majority of Canadian properties who have won BOMA International TOBY Awards, including winners in the: Historical Building, Industrial Office Building, Medical Office Building, Office Buildings, Suburban Office Park, and Retail categories.
Retaining CD Sonter to write your property’s submission is more than just bringing a skilled writing team on board. We approach your program with a fresh perspective to capture all of the best practices in place, we ask pertinent questions to help tell your story, and we also bring to the forefront initiatives that are unique and leading-edge that internal teams may take for granted.
