Houston. What a great turnout of more than 200 members to raise money for our PAC. It was attended by a diversified cross section of our membership, many of which have not attended previous events. The day was full of networking and camaraderie, and wrapped up with a BBQ dinner and awards ceremony. I want to thank our committee members and staff who worked tirelessly to make this first event so successful and memorable. I also want to thank our underwriting sponsor ABM for standing by the BAC PAC year after year along with all the others sponsors. Look for this event again next year and sign up early. Now that the word is out about how much fun it was it is sure to sell out. I look forward to seeing you at our June luncheon, which will feature our annual Broker Panel. This highpowered panel will provide insight

Mission The mission of the Houston Building Owners and Managers Association is to support and advance the interests of the commercial real estate industry.

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

property, for it distorts the market values of property, and results in commercial real estate paying a disproportionate share of property taxes. Texas BOMA and our lobbyists are also monitoring any additional legislature related to Texas Margin Tax and any real property transfer tax. We stated during our visits that we support green incentives and oppose green mandates by government. I think you will agree we know more about greening our buildings than our governing bodies. Thank you to the Houston members that attended this important event. The Legislative Committee has been busy monitoring and working with Coalition for Greater Houston on the repeal of Prop 1. Tammy and many members have been hard at work, including yours truly, visiting city council members stating our position against the proposition

MISSION & VISION

The weather is heating up and so is Houston BOMA. It is exciting to watch all the flurry of membership involvement as we kick into high gear with activities and advocacy. February was highlighted by the TOBY awards, Texas BOMA Advocacy Day in Austin and March concluded with a very successful BAC PAC Sporting Clays Tournament. This is on top of all the legislative efforts related to Renew Houston or better known as Prop 1 (Houston’s Rain Tax). This year’s TOBY was exceptional with eight entries and seven winners moving on to the Southwest Conference in Dallas. Bill Balleza, local news anchor with KPRC Local 2 News, was our Master of Ceremonies for the luncheon of over 225 members at the Hotel InterContinental. We look forward to seeing our Houston entries win in Dallas and present at the BOMA International Conference in Washington DC in June. I want to thank the TOBY committee, judges and entrants for working so hard to make this year’s competition so successful. Houston has consistently been well represented at the International TOBYs and has produced several International winners. I am betting this year will be no exception. A strong contingency of 20 members from Houston BOMA along with the other Texas locals descended on Austin for the 2011 Texas BOMA Advocacy Day in February. Given the difficult legislative year with budget shortfalls and very vocal opponents from around the state visiting the Capitol, it is a testament to our team of lobbyists led by Robert Miller that Texas BOMA members are so well received by our legislators and willing to take the time to hear our concerns. We reminded the legislators that now is not the time to make up for the budget short falls by adding fees and taxes to our already fragile business climate; it is imperative that they cut the excessive costs and waste out of government before they look to the property owners for more money. We opposed proposed bills requiring mandatory sales price disclosure, which we believe will result in appraisal districts chasing sales pricing verses using income valuation method for commercial properties. We opposed appraisal caps on real

and importance of no exemptions. As of late, it appears the mayor will be granting exemptions, which goes against her pledge; and we are working hard to make sure any additional fees related to these exemptions are not passed on to our businesses and commercial property owners. Recently several members sat down with the City of Houston to strengthen and clarify the process of Certificate of Occupancy permits in our buildings. This work is the core of your association and this hard work behind the scenes fighting on your behalf is what makes Houston BOMA great. I am still on a high from our First BAC PAC Sporting Clay’s Tournament at American Shooting Center in West

to the state of commercial real estate here in Houston and Texas. I am also looking ahead to yet another great event that Houston BOMA provides for our members – the Building Expo in May. Over 700 commercial real estate professionals attend this event from Houston and the surrounding area. It is a great place to visit with our Allied Professional members and your Property Management colleagues. In closing, I want to thank again all our members, and especially our active volunteers, that make up the heart of this organization. I am proud to serve you as President and am humbled by all of your efforts in making this such a great association. ■

Sustainability Case Study: LIFE SCIENCE PLAZA’S “TENANTS GO GREEN” By Julie Artz –Life Science Plaza/Jones Lang LaSalle Tenants Go Green Mission Statement “To formulate and share ideas and develop programs geared toward environmentally friendly practices and energy saving initiatives, developed by a committee of Tenants, Employees and Building Management Staff” Sustainability and environmentally friendly practices are very important at Life Science Plaza. Energy consumption in commercial office buildings account for 18% of US greenhouse gas emissions. It is the responsibility of everyone in our building to participate in environmentally friendly initiatives in order to achieve the greatest impact. Life Science Management has created a Tenants Go Green Committee to help everyone get involved in the building’s sustainability efforts.

Life Science Plaza

One of the most important keys to this program is working directly with the tenants. We invited the Life Science Plaza tenants to join our Tenants Go Green Committee. This committee is made up of management and Life Science Plaza tenant representatives who are directly connected and interested in their own firm’s sustainability programs. The committee meets quarterly throughout the year to share ideas and receive building updates. Our initial meeting was a luncheon; we had a great turnout – a representative from every tenant. During the meeting, we asked members to fill out a survey regarding their own firm’s recycling efforts and environmentally friendly practices. We found out that most do not have a formal recycling program in place but several do use a shredding company for disposal of their documents. The following energy saving initiatives and environmentally friendly practices were shared with our tenants. Our goal is for everyone in our building to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. 1. Water – report leaking faucets, install energy efficient faucets and low flow toilets, minimize irrigation usage for landscape, wash dishes in dishwasher only when it is a full load. 2. Energy – turn off lights when not in rooms being used (add light sensors where applicable), turn off PCs and monitors continued on page 10 HOUSTON BUILDING OWNERS & MANAGERS ASSOCIATION MAY/JUNE 2011

Summit Energy Named Emerging Leader in Enterprise Energy and Carbon Accounting

Hines Receives Top Ranking as Greenest Company Hines announced that it has received top honors in Commercial Property Executive’s ranking of “Greenest Companies” in their March 2011 issue. Of the 35 real estate companies ranked, Hines came in first, and 16 percentage points higher than its nearest competitor. According to the publication, the “environmental sustainability index helps to identify and separate those firms most committed to sustainability from others new to or less involved in the practice.” Companies ranked had, on average, 22 LEED® or equivalent certified buildings, while Hines led the pack with over 200 buildings, representing more than 107 million square feet certified, pre-certified or registered

Summit Energy, a global sustainability and energy management firm and Houston BOMA member, has been named an Emerging Leader in the Enterprise Energy and Carbon Accounting (EECA) software market in a report released today by Groom Energy Solutions. Summit was chosen as a key carbon management company from among 75 vendors examined in the report, “The 2011 Enterprise Energy and Carbon Accounting (EECA) Software Market – A Buyers Guide.” The research report analyzes the energy and carbon management software market and identifies “emerging leaders” in the industry by evaluating five criteria: customer deployments, technology features, energy management capabilities, market vision and financial stability. Summit’s emphasis on accuracy addresses a key issue identified in Groom Energy report: “collection of energy usage data is often the most labor-intensive part of any carbon emission project.” “Our inclusion in the Groom 2011 EECA Emerging Leaders list reflects the trust that dozens of companies have placed in our carbon and sustainability services,” said Steve Wilhite, President and CEO of Summit Energy. “As a company with 20 years of experience with energy data, Summit has built its business around the inextricable link between carbon management and solid energy usage data.” ■ HOUSTON BUILDING OWNERS & MANAGERS ASSOCIATION MAY/JUNE 2011

The smell of success and gunpowder permeated the First Annual BAC PAC Sporting Clays Tournament. With over 280 participants in attendance, the event raised over $17,000 for our political action committee which allowed us to extend our political outreach and influence in the government realm even further. Thanks so much to all who participated and made the event such an overwhelming success! Of extreme importance are our committee members without whom this event would not have happened. Big big kudos to Rachel Davis, Reliant NRG, Brett Williams, Thomas Properties Group, Mark Janssen, Hines, James Froelich, CBRE, Lacey Withers, ABM and Chair Joseph Hebert, Cameron Management for putting on an outstanding fundraiser and networking event.

YOUNG PROFESSIONALS

Mastered the Disaster By Marianne Lawson, Property Manager with Hines and YP Vice Chair Recently, BOMA’s Young Professional Committee hosted the Be a Master of Disaster Seminar. We were fortunate enough to have Rush Durkin and Jeff Mabrey of Hines and Kirk O’Neal of Crescent Real Estate Equities sit on our esteemed panel and answer questions about fires, floods and hurricanes. These property management veterans started off the discussion with a brief description of what their major “disasters” were. Rush Durkin discussed his experience with flooding during Tropical Storm Allison and losing all critical equipment at Bank of America Center for almost an entire month. Kirk O’Neal discussed an electrical fire that took out an entire floor and

damaged the surrounding floors. Lastly, Jeff Mabrey described his experience with Hurricane Ike and the loss of almost 500 windows at Chase Tower. Thanks to Young Professional Sponsor United Protective Services. Check out their ad below. Heather McMillon with Transwestern, the moderator for the event and a YP herself, asked the panelists a variety of questions ranging in topics from tenant communication, insurance, disaster preparation methods, access control during the remediation and, of course, lessons learned. The attendees, especially the younger managers, came away with several ideas and things to keep in mind should they ever find themselves in a disaster situation. The packed room got all of their questions answered and shared how they felt better prepared for any disaster (knock on wood) that may hit Houston in the future. Now if we can just get those pesky hurricanes to miss us this year, the panel will have been a complete success! ■

Sustainability Case Study continued from page 3 when gone for extended periods, switch printers to OFF at end of the day. Remember… office equipment typically accounts for more than 20% of energy used in most offices. 3. Transportation – be aware of carbon emissions during delivery and disposal of materials, keep it local when applicable. 4. Green Products – recycled contents; non-toxic janitorial and building maintenance supplies; low VOC paints, furniture and flooring amenities.

5. Non-Hazardous Solid Waste Management – reduce amount of solid waste going to landfill, recycle materials when possible, find a useful purpose for products no longer needed. The committee has been informed that these initiatives have a direct impact on operational costs benefiting both LSP management and tenants. Our tenants pay a share of most utilities and garbage disposal. We encourage them to recycle paper, plastic bottles and aluminum cans to decrease amount of waste going into our trash compactor and into landfills. The less trash in compactor means less disposal fee to pay! Our bi-annual waste audit reports what materials, besides wet trash, is in our garbage. We share this report with our committee to encourage them to market the recycling efforts to their coworkers. Our goal is to recycle more and to dump less trash into compactor and landfills. Communication is key to initiating sustainability and environmentally friendly practices to the Tenants Go Green Committee, their firms, and all building visitors. The best way to promote recycling is to practice it! We have purchased “starter kits” for each of our tenants: one green, 23-gallon container with lid for bottles/ cans and six medium-size containers for paper (not needing to be shredded). As the small recycle containers fill up, tenants are able to empty

The parking garage station displays a bright green color band on wall with large white lettering including the recycle logos. It is highly visible from our main lobby area.
