BOMA International Names Parmenter to Top 5 Companies List.
MIAMI -- BOMA International named the top five companies nationwide to have reached BOMA 360 status. Parmenter Realty Partners took the fourth place position and was named alongside real estate giants such as CBRE, Brookfield Properties, Piedmont Office Realty Trust, and Hines.
The Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA) designed the BOMA 360 program to recognize commercial properties that execute best practices in overall building operations and management, including sustainability. The official BOMA website showcases Parmenter in their case study section and calls the firm, "a leader in sustainability and building management". Of Parmenter's 33 assets, currently 21 have achieved BOMA 360 recognition with the remaining structures pending or in progress of obtaining the accolade.
Another milestone in a series for Parmenter in its corporate commitment to developing a sustainable portfolio, the achievement goes alongside of recognition from the U.S. Green Building Council, Energy Star, and other BOMA achievements. The firm has created this infographic that shows some of the ways they support sustainable practices in their buildings throughout Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Jacksonville, and other southern metropolitan areas.
Steve Harrison, Parmenter's Vice President of Facilities and Sustainability, has been dedicated to the firm's efforts for more than a decade.
"This type of recognition supports what we've been doing in our buildings since the mid-80's," Harrison said. "It started with recycling, then energy and water conservation, and now we focus on comprehensive, full-circle sustainability."
"We are proud to note that as a percentage of our portfolio this is a sizeable accomplishment - with more than 80% of our properties now having reached BOMA 360 status," Parmenter Chief Operating Officer Andy Weiss said of the achievement. "We're grateful to our property managers and engineers who make these accomplishments possible."
