Years in the works, BOMA Canada will officially unveil BOMA BEST® 3.0 at BOMEX® 2016 in Regina on September 20-22, 2016. Applicants eager to certify to this new standard can do so as early as this summer, as part of the soft launch.
BOMA BEST® 3.0 replaces BOMA BEST® Version 2 and represents fresh, cutting edge content on a brand new and vastly improved software platform.
BOMA Canada has retained Stantec to lead the overhaul of all BOMA BEST® modules, assessment categories, BEST Practices, questions, answers, sequencing and scoring. Extensive stakeholder engagement is ensuring that BOMA BEST® 3.0 remains “by the industry, for the industry.”
The overhaul also includes new questionnaires for the Office, Light Industrial, Open Air Retail and Shopping Centre modules, plus a first-of-its-kind Universal module.
Among many other upgrades, BOMA BEST® 3.0 will normalize energy consumption and improve energy and water benchmarking methodologies.
BOMA BEST® 3.0’s new platform will be flexible, user-friendly and highly customizable to meet specific user needs. Beyond certifying your building with the BOMA BEST® assessment, new components also include:
Training will be offered during summer 2016. Dates and times will be announced shortly and will be posted here. Training will also be offered at BOMEX® 2016 in Regina.
Buildings with BOMA BEST® certifications expiring before September 30, 2017 are eligible to extend their current certifications until December 31st, 2017 for a fee. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
