BOMA/Metro Detroit - Mandatory Judges Workshop

The Outstanding Building of the Year "TOBY" Award is the most prestigious and comprehensive program of its kind in the commercial real estate industry, recognizing quality in office buildings and awarding excellence in office building management. All facets of a building's operations are thoroughly evaluated during the judging process, including tenant relations programs, community involvement, emergency preparedness, and security standards and continuing education for building personnel. Floor plans, site plans, and photographs round out the portfolio, providing an extensive examination of the building by the judges.
