As part of a larger organization (TG) that has served students and our community for nearly 40 years, Waypoint strives to be a great place to work. Attractive benefits and fun, committed co-workers top the list of Waypoint’s perks, along with one aspect that’s easy to overlook: our building. We aim to provide a vibrant atmosphere where people enjoy working, and regular, modernizing updates are a part of that. But the quality isn’t just on the surface. It goes to our core. Our building was recently recognized as best in class. It received the BOMA 360 Performance Building designation.
The program of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International recognizes commercial properties that demonstrate excellence in building management.
The program evaluates properties in six major areas: building operations and management; life safety/security/risk management; training and education of building personnel; energy management; environmental/sustainability performance; and tenant relations and community involvement. Only those buildings that satisfy the requirements in all six areas are awarded the prestigious designation.
“Industry professionals determined that TG’s facilities perform at the highest levels of operations. We are thrilled to receive this important recognition,” says John Sutton, TG’s Manager of Corporate Services. “Our facilities staff has done an outstanding job in the ongoing maintenance and operation of the property.”
The TG facility has also been awarded the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Energy Star certification for 10 consecutive years. TG’s current Portfolio Manager score is 95 out of a possible 100, placing our facility in the top percentile of most energy-efficient buildings in the country. The national average building score is 50. A focus on sustainability within a dynamic setting is a true source of pride for TG and Waypoint.
