BOMA BC Year in Review 2017


Y TIME AS YOUR CURRENT CHAIR of BOMA BC is coming to an end as of the next Annual General Meeting in April. Wow, that has gone by faster than I thought and hoped! I will look forward, however, to continuing as Past Chair and passing on the much coveted ‘talking stick’ to incoming Chair, Greg Last. The past two years have produced exceptional results which is not surprising given the many talented professionals sitting around the BOMA BC Board table. The 2017 objectives were successfully met and, in some cases, exceeded. I include just a few of the highlights but encourage you to read through this Annual report for further details on the many accomplishments realized this past year. The Labour Market study was a huge success having completed the first two phases within budget provided by the Ministry of Labour with great participation from many professionals in our industry. BOMA BC has submitted a 3rd phase funding proposal for labour market strategies which is expected to be completed in 2018. The Commercial Real Estate Industry Impact Study was also completed in 2017 and within budget and showcased at our April luncheon. Energy and sustainability initiatives include an extended three-year commitment from BC Hydro to fund the BOMA Energy Manager position. Following extensive discussions with the Province, BOMA also received an additional three-year contract to fund an Energy Advisor role for the Association. With both positions filled, BOMA is able to provide expanded energy/sustainability related services to its membership including greater promotion and support for BOMA BEST and BOMA e-Energy Training. The Board of Directors and Executives had the opportunity this past June to gather to review BOMA BC’s long range strategic plans. This was an all-day session that resulted in many great new initiatives. One of the key items identified was the need to effectively and formally produce a document outlining the many benefits of membership in BOMA and to communicate this to our members. We will also host our national conference BOMEX in 2020. All have been included in the 2018 Business Plan. I am thankful for the opportunity and experience gained over the many years to serve as a Committee member, a Board member and Chair of the Board of Directors. BOMA BC’s involvement with many regulatory advisory bodies and Government representatives who seek BOMA’s advice and recommendations ensures the voice of the commercial real estate industry is heard – I am proud to be associated with BOMA BC and it has been my absolute pleasure to serve!

Susan Dodsworth, Chair, BOMA BC


S YOUR PRESIDENT I’m pleased to report, and this will be my last report, that BOMA BC had another very successful year in 2017. In early 2018, I will be stepping down after 24 years of managing the organization and transitioning into retirement. I’m comfortable with my decision knowing that the Association is in excellent condition with a strong vibrant membership, financially sound and under excellent leadership working in harmony with an outstanding staff. I’m pleased that the future of BOMA is bright and that the BOMA brand continues to be respected by all as the voice of the commercial building management industry. A big thank you to everyone for making the journey memorable, fun and fulfilling. Paul LaBranche, President, BOMA BC

Government Affairs


HAS BEEN ENGAGED with the Ministry of Environment over the past few years on our Commercial Buildings Climate Action Plan. After the formation of the new Provincial NDP/Green Government we introduced our plan to BC’s Minister of Environment and Climate Strategy, Hon. George Heyman, as well as to Jonathan Wilkinson, Federal Parliamentary Secretary for the Minister of Environment and Climate Change as federal/provincial negotiations on the low carbon economy continue. BOMA BC received a Climate & Energy Action Special Recognition Award from the BC Minister of Environment on behalf of the Community Energy Association, for the collaboration that led to the successful adoption of the BC Energy Step Code and the establishment of the BC Energy Step Code Council, of which BOMA is a member. In partnership with the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources, BOMA has created a Business Energy Advisor role to help with energy assessments, building a business case, introducing incentive programs and giving advice on how to complete energy efficiency upgrades. Contact BOMA if you would like to take advantage of this free service. BOMA will be working closely with the Province of BC, Fortis BC and BC Hydro in the coming year to ensure that members receive the benefits of any potential incentive programs. BOMA will continue as a founding member of the Coalition of BC Businesses Strategy Group, which aims to provide advice to the Provincial Government on smart policies that foster a favourable business environment. The group’s focus is on keeping the economy strong and creating good jobs for British Columbians.

Government Affairs, continued BOMA BC, with the guidance of our Governance Advisory Committee, has completed Phase 2 of the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training Sector Labour Market Partnership Program to help us research information on the human resource requirements of our industry. BOMA received approval to begin Phase 3 of the partnership in 2018 which will focus on developing a comprehensive strategy to best address all of our labour force needs.

In response to property taxes increasing at unsustainable rates for small businesses, the City of Vancouver introduced a motion for Council to ask the Provincial Government to consider introducing split tax assessment bills and commercial rent controls. BOMA participated in a series of meetings with City staff and after discussions with other business associations, encouraged the City to cancel their recommendation for rent controls. A further recommendation that came as a result of the consultations is to create a Province-led working group, which BOMA will participate in to find sustainable solutions to this important issue. BOMA has been working with the City on ways to speed up the Development Permit process, as well as on seismic, parking and fire antennae amplification issues. In addition, BOMA continues to have a representative on the Urban Design Panel to help ensure the industry has a voice when new developments are being considered in the City of Vancouver. â–



Energy Management Program (EMP)


HE EMP is a suite of services that provide assistance and support to BOMA BC members with their energy and environmental management initiatives. Additionally, BOMA’s Energy Manager helps ensure the commercial real estate industry has support and representation on issues concerning energy and sustainability with governing bodies. This past year Keith Shaughnessy was appointed as Energy Manager. BOMA BC also contracted Jennifer Davis of TurnLeaf Consulting, at 2017 year-end, to work with us for 2018 on identifying further opportunities to support our membership and grow our energy and environmental services. BOMA BEST 3.0 officially launched in early 2017. The revamped program has more rigor than previous versions, but it’s also substantially more interactive and will allow for less time-consuming renewals in future. ■

Services offered to BOMA BC members at a discount through the BOMA EMP: BOMA uTrack… This utility monitoring system (powered by PUMA) has helped numerous business owners and property managers with tracking and analyzing their energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Participants are able to better understand the electrical and gas consumption in their buildings, identify conservation projects and track the success of these projects. e-Energy Training… This interactive online energy management training program has taught building management and operations personnel how to easily identify energy reduction opportunities and better understand energy conservation principals. The course also teaches how to develop strategies to encourage stakeholders to save energy. This selfpaced online course provides building operators, engineers, and managers with a refreshed set of skills and knowledge to identify and act on energy reduction opportunities. Total Waste Management… The Total Waste Management program is a one-stop, cost effective recycling service that includes: paper; cardboard; mixed containers; batteries; electronics; and organics. BOMA BC members receive a comprehensive waste audit to help identify and improve current waste practices and receive a discount for this service.


BOMA BEST® BEST ® is the acronym for ‘Building Environmental STandards’. The BOMA BEST ® national environmental program provides certification to buildings and facilities and helps building owners benchmark against accepted industry performance standards. It also identifies ways of improving how buildings are managed and operated from an energy and environmental perspective. Since its inception in 2005, the program has evolved substantially to keep pace with industry trends and best practices. The program addresses an industry need for realistic standards for energy and environmental performance of existing buildings based on accurate, independently verified information. BOMA BEST® 3.0 includes seven modules for certification (office, light industrial, shopping centre, open air retail, multi-unit residential, health care and universal). These certifications focus on ten areas: energy; water; air quality; comfort; health and wellness; purchasing; custodial; waste; site; and stakeholder engagement. ■

Five levels of certification:







Met the best practices (up to 19%)

Achieved 20% to 49% on questionnaire

Achieved 50% to 79% on questionnaire

Achieved 80% to 89% on questionnaire

Energy & Environment Committee

BUILDEX & the Vancouver Real Estate Forum BOMA BC was the Principal Sponsor for BUILDEX Vancouver, which saw over 13,500 people visit the tradeshow floor. We were pleased to be a Supporting Association of the Vancouver Real Estate Forum, the region’s largest conference on investment and management issues for our industry. ■

The E&E Committee supports BOMA BC members through the development and delivery of initiatives related to energy efficiency and sustainability. The committee keeps up-to-date on industry trends, news, and regulatory information relating to energy and the environment and disseminates pertinent information to members. This past year, the committee completed case studies looking at energy benchmarking, behaviour change, and heat recovery, which have been posted to the BOMA BC website and included in BOMA BeX Newsletter. Case studies to come include Indoor Air Quality, Waste Management, Green Procurement, and Bi-Level Lighting. Additionally, the committee is creating template documents for the Energy, Water, Waste, and Hazmat Management assessments, which are requirements for BOMA BEST certification.

Health & Safety Committee The Health and Safety Committee’s main focus is to review and provide responses to proposed regulatory changes from organizations such as WorkSafeBC and Technical Safety BC which could impact BOMA members. 2017 was the inaugural year of BOMA BC’s Health and Safety Award, which was developed by this committee. As well, a representative from the committee has been assisting BOMA Canada on the development of a similar national award. The committee has begun working with the City of Vancouver on a Seismic Advisory Council. BOMA will keep you updated on this important work.

Emergency Response Task Force The purpose of the BOMA Emergency Task Force is to share relevant information with property managers, security managers and building operators on identifying best practices to secure their properties and tenants. The committee also helps advance the BOMA Alert Emergency Mass Notification System which can send out mass alerts to members in the event of an emergency or natural disaster. The committee updated the links and resources web page to list qualified vendors that provide information and supplies for security and emergency planning. In addition, the committee held a day long security seminar with some of the best industry experts in their fields to provide security best practices for property managers and security managers. The presenters shared ways to mitigate security concerns through both target hardening and the development of best practices. ■
