A recap of a BOMA Suburban Chicago webinar examines various building certifications that anticipate return to the office concerns.
Earlier this year, Tim Zelazny and Zachary Litwin presented “Building Health Certifications: Which One Is Best for Your Building?” during a BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association) Suburban Chicago webinar. As companies gear up to return workers to in-person workspaces, greater attention is being focused on the health and wellness of office environments. But as owners seek to offer tenants verifiable evidence that their facilities are safe, many wonder which building certification is most appropriate. Zelazny says that level of concern is likely to last well beyond reactions to the pandemic.
