Historical Building: 330 University Avenue (Canada Life Building)
Corporate Building: 190 Simcoe Street
Office Building: 500,000 sq. ft. to 1 million sq. ft.: 1 Adelaide Street East
The COE “is backed by a rigorous certification program that involves a written submission and an onsite visit. Information to be included and scored includes: building management and operations, community impact, tenant relations/communications, energy management and conservation, environmental, regulatory and sustainability initiatives, and the training of the building personnel.” TOBY Awards are presented to the highest scoring COE recipients.
“GWLRA has always felt that our property management teams are of the highest quality, and we are pleased that the BOMA judges concur,” said Elizabeth Schreurs, Senior Director, Property Management. “Managing buildings in these challenging times is difficult, but our teams are resilient, professional, and have fantastic attitudes. We are so proud of our teams for this incredible achievement.”
Achieving awards such as BOMA’s COE and TOBY is a positive outcome of our robust sustainability practice. They help us attract high-quality tenants, ensure best-in-class operational practices, and enhance the long-term value of our clients’ assets.
“These awards are a testament to our property and asset management teams’ deep commitment to excellence in building operations, which also serves to distinguish GWLRA’s approach to sustainability,” said Robert Campanelli, Vice-President, Corporate Sustainability.
