Dexterra’s Forensics Services and Coroner’s Complex account achieves BOMA BEST Platinum
The Forensics Services and Coroner’s Complex (FSCC) is a high security, public-private partnership modeled facility managed by Dexterra for one of our clients, the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services (MCSCS). As part of our commitment to operate facilities in a sustainable fashion, we put processes and practices in place to elevate the FSCC green certification to BOMA BEST Platinum; a certification awarded by the Building Owners and Managers Association of Canada (BOMA).
In order to achieve this certification, the Dexterra team at the FSCC did the following:
- Polices and Procedures were completed to ensure that we exceeded the requirements of the 16 best practices outlined by BOMA BEST
- We did a deep-dive into the facility’s energy and water performance and implemented a plan to achieve efficiency values that are Energy Star recognized
- Our approach included broader sustainability development goals which exceed the BOMA BEST requirements
- Keen focus was placed upon waste reduction strategies, resulting in Dexterra demonstrating a credible waste reduction strategy recognized by both BOMA BEST and the Recycling Council of Ontario, which awarded the facility the 3R Certification
The facility was Certified BOMA BEST Platinum, which is valid for three years. Our team is proud of this milestone, which was achieved thanks to our collaborative relationship with Concert Infrastructure, our client, MCSCS, and the facility tenants, the Center of Forensics Sciences, the Office of the Fire Marshall and Emergency Management, the Provincial Forensics Pathology Unit and the Office of the Chief Coroner. Demonstrating our continued commitment to environmental sustainability performance and collaborating with the clients we work for and customers we serve.
BOMA BEST is a voluntary program which is awarded to facilities in commercial real estate which demonstrate excellence in energy and environmental management and performance. To learn more, visit http://bomacanada.ca/bomabest.
