How to attain green & healthy buildings? A BOMA Presentation

This coming week I’ll be moderating a panel for BOMA Boston, the property and facilities managers’ organization. You can sign up here.

We are excited to present on LEED, WELL, and Fitwell, and how each of these systems shape attention and drive performance on sustainability and health outcomes for buildings. Using these systems tracks indicators and pushes management to deliver on improvements for better occupant experiences.

I’ll be guiding a short conversation among key stakeholders at Boston Properties and Janitronics on how they use rating systems and scoring programs to focus attention on health outcomes. Their sustainability priorities have created organizational infrastructure that engaged a fabric of professionals across their teams. The interpersonal relationships of this infrastructure became a crucial strength at the outset of the COVID pandemic.

With solid working relationships and trust, these team members had high collaboration and functionality, and became the go-to group to handle the pandemic response. They created the Boston Properties Health Security Plan, which had guided response work and ensured safety for users of their buildings. Their protocols were adopted by many real estate operators across the globe – kudos to them! [Here is the March 2021 updated version of this Health Security Plan]
