American Tobacco wins Outstanding Building of the Year from the Raleigh/Durham Building Owners & Managers Association.
The second award came from the local Raleigh/Durham BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association) Chapter where American Tobacco was awarded the Outstanding Building of the Year in the historical category.
Gerry Boyle, Senior Property Manager and BOMA Member, received the award on behalf of American Tobacco and Capitol Broadcasting.
The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards are the most prestigious and comprehensive programs of their kind in the commercial real estate industry recognizing quality in buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.
During the competitions, all facets of a building’s operations are thoroughly evaluated. Buildings are judged on everything from community involvement and site management to environmental and “green” policies and procedures.
The competition consists of three levels. The competition begins at the BOMA local association level, winning entries advance from there to the regional level and, finally, regional winners advance to the international level. The international TOBY Awards will be presented at the BOMA International Conference in Washington, DC, June 26-28, 2011.
