    After an eight-year pause, medical office buildings once again are eligible to earn a score of 1-100 from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program. ENERGY STAR scores are updated periodically to manage the impact of changes in building technologies and practices. EPA has partnered with BOMA International since 2004 when it officially launched the Medical Office Building (MOB) ENERGY STAR Score. As was done in 2011, EPA again worked with BOMA and the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) to conduct a survey of healthcare facilities collecting operational characteristics and 2015 energy consumption. The survey reveals new energy use trends in healthcare facilities and has been used to update the ENERGY STAR score models for General Medical & Surgical and Medical Office Buildings. This webinar will feature a panel of industry experts across the healthcare real estate sector and will provide insight on the value and application of ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Updating the scoring algorithm will likely change ENERGY STAR scores of current hospitals and MOBs. Attendees will be informed of the ramifications of these changes through applicable examples from the panel of industry experts, giving insight to better anticipate the impact on attendees’ current or future portfolios. Attendees also will learn how energy intensity has changed in hospitals and medical office buildings over time, further promoting awareness of the vast operational changes occurring within them.

    ​The workforce development landscape in commercial real estate is shifting dramatically, with hiring today becoming a very different undertaking than it once was. ​There aren't enough candidates to fill all of the open positions, and the skills gap is widening. In fact, research shows that the labor shortage is currently impacting as ​many as 70 percent of all commercial real estate firms. But this current talent pipeline problem can't be blamed on the pandemic and the Great Resignation alone. Factors such as employee​ disengagement, stagnant wages, poor work culture, financial uncertainty and a lack of mentorship have all contributed to this talent crunch. Hiring and retention have never been easy, but today's​ labor market has only increased the level of difficulty. So, what are commercial real estate firms to do? Three industry veterans will share their advice and answer your questions in a wide-ranging virtual discussion.​ This webinar is a complement to the latest BOMA Deep Dive, Raising Talent in the Midst of the Great Resignation, which can be found at www.boma.org/DeepDives​.

    Tips and Tricks for Property Managers to Handle Tenant Improvement Projects

    Property Managers are now being asked to be construction managers.  Owners are looking for ways to reduce costs and many believe that since they pay a management fee why pay an additional construction manager fee when the property manager is already on the “payroll.”  Many property managers already run large projects, so these skills are transferable.  This ability to handle construction projects is a value enhanced service that property managers can offer their clients and will provide the property manager with better control over the project and how it impacts the asset.

    At the end of the session, participants will:

    • Describe the project process steps from beginning to completion
    • Discuss how this additional construction management skill set will provide a value enhanced service that third party providers can offer their clients
    • Highlight how fees earned will make the property management unit more profitable and not go to another entity
