BOMA BEST Certification for Quebec Buildings

QUEBEC, 4 December 2018 –The Building Owners and Managers Association of Quebec (BOMA Quebec) takes pride in the commitment to the environment demonstrated in several buildings. BOMA BEST is an industry standard that reflects rigorous management of air quality, energy consumption, waste management and preventive maintenance. The level of certification is based on the rating obtained during a building inspection carried out by an independent expert. The goal of the program is to "Create a sustainable environment, one building at a time".

The awards event took place in the Place de la Cité before a crowd of some 100 people. We extend our sincere congratulations to the following firms.

The program consists of five levels – Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Certified. Such certification and an intuitive brand image means that the occupants of certified buildings can count on quality environmental practices and management. The program is constantly evolving, and on October 1, 2016 a new version of the questionnaire was launched. The new, completely revamped questionnaire is on a brand new digital platform that is more flexible, more user-friendly and customizable. It also has new supplemental evaluation protocols. These include BOMA BEST® for sustainable workplaces based on tenant activities, and a new resilience measuring tool to evaluate a building's vulnerability to extreme weather events.
