About BOMA BEST® 3.0

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:

  • Ongoing access so users can continuously update all metrics after certification;
  • Continuous utility benchmarking and monitoring;
  • Enhanced reporting capabilities;
  • Portfolio views for multiple buildings; and
