Colonnade BridgePort is proud to announce that 2.6 million sq.ft. of managed assets are now certified under the BOMA BEST® green building certification program. The BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association) BEST (Building Environmental Standards) certification program is a Canadian industry standard that recognizes the excellence in energy and environmental management and performance in commercial real estate.
In 2020, the process began to develop Colonnade BridgePort’s own BOMA BEST® Portfolio Program, which provides a structured framework to help property teams assess key areas of environmental management and performance. The program is aligned with industry standards and supports environmental monitoring and continuous improvement of sustainability performance across the portfolio.
Throughout 2020-21, property management teams, owners and tenants came together in a team effort to ensure the properties met key criteria in the following areas: Energy, Water, Air, Comfort, Health and Wellness, Custodial, Purchasing, Waste, Site and Stakeholder Engagement.
Congratulations to the property management teams, owners and tenants for achieving this great milestone! In total, 47% of the managed portfolio has now been awarded third-party building certifications, including BOMA BEST®, LEED® and Wired®.
