1 BOMA BESt AND LEED EBOM COMPARISON INTERNATIONAL FACILITY MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION James Furlong, CET, LEED AP - Senior Associate, Stantec Consulting Ltd.

2 BOMA BESt BOMA - Building Owners and Managers Association Self governed association by its elected executive committee and board of directors BOMA BESt is a national environmental recognition and certification program for existing commercial buildings. BOMA BESt is the next evolution of BOMA Canada's Go Green program.

3 BOMA BESt BOMA BESt helps assess how well your building is performing and includes suggestions for tangible ways to improve environmental practices. Currently suitable for multiple tenant facilities Commercial office building Applications for retail (malls) Light industrial pending development Future additional modules online for MURB and other facility types

4 LEED EBOM LEED: Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design EBOM: Existing Building Operations & Maintenance LEED EBOM is a existing building rating system administered by the Canada Green Building Council, a National Non-Profit Organization, affiliated with the US Green building Council. LEED EBOM helps building owners and operators measure operations, improvements and maintenance on a consistent scale, with the goal of maximizing operational efficiency while minimizing environmental, resource and health impacts. Suitable for all building types

32 Certification Categories BOMA BESt LEED EBOM Energy Water Waste Reduction Indoor Air Quality and Environment Sustainable Sites Innovation in Operations

33 Operations vs. Tenant Credits BOM A BESt LEED EBOM 12% 23% Operations Tenants 88% 77%

34 Which Program to Use BOMA BESt: Best suited for multiple tenant facilities i.e. commercial office building Applications for retail (malls) and light industrial pending development Small to medium facilities

35 Which Program to Use LEED EBOM is suitable where: Building was certified to LEED- NC (new Construction) or LEED CS (Core and Shell) Primary Tenant is also Owner or Building Manager Best Practice in Sustainability Regulations or Tenant Require it (i.e. Federal Government) Medium to large facilities

36 Energy Saving Tips Energy and Water Audit Before having an energy and water audit conducted on your facility, conduct your own review. There are a number of simple energy reduction opportunities with a quick return on investment (Low Hanging Fruit). Use the energy and water audit to identify more complex reduction opportunities and to provide a financial analysis of the opportunities.

37 Energy Saving Tips Lighting Replace incandescent lamps with CFL s Retrofit exit signs with LED lamps. Occupancy sensors in areas of periodic use with long run hours. Ensure exterior lighting is controlled by a photocell.

38 Energy Saving Tips HVAC Space temperature setback Incorporate an optimum start for the air handling systems Programmable thermostats. Timer on DHW recirculating pumps. Review and optimize operating schedules of equipment. Ensure controls are operating as they should.

39 Energy Saving Tips Envelope Seal any cracks or openings. Replace damaged weather stripping on windows and doors. Ensure doors close properly. Water Low flow aerators on lavatories. Moisture sensor on irrigation system.

40 Energy Saving Tips Tenant Awareness Program Shut down equipment at night and weekend Computers (including the monitor) Photocopiers Printers Encourage lights to be turned off when not needed. Make tenants aware of their impact on the energy consumption of the building.

41 Energy Saving Tips Plan Green There is currently a lot of infrastructure built in the late 70 s and in the 80 s in which major equipment is due for replacement. Evaluate your equipment replacement policies Do not change like for like Lifecycle renewals can create an opportunity to make changes that can have significant impact on your energy consumption.

42 Energy Saving Tips Understand Your Building How is the building working? Is it working as intended? How can it be improved?

43 Case Study Good Earth Building Good Earth Building 29 year old facility (circa 1980) Infrastructure failing Losing tenants Operations and utility costs increasing Chronic occupant complaints

44 Case Study Good Earth Building $1,000,000 Renovation Replace primary HVAC plant (boiler, chiller, cooling tower, pumps and motors) Controls upgrade Complete lighting retrofit

45 Case Study Good Earth Building 10 year simple payback 25% decrease in energy costs 50% reduction in maintenance costs Reduced tenant turnover Improved thermal comfort & lighting (reduced headache complaints) Considering BOMA BESt Level 2 Certification

46 Conclusion BOMA BESt To be used for multi-tenant buildings primarily commercial office Small to medium facilities Soon to apply to multi-tenant retail LEED EBOM To be used for Buildings with LEED NC or CS Certification Most Other buildings until BOMA BESt provides other packages Medium to large facilities
