On Thursday May 8, BOMA Calgary hosted the 2014 TransCanada BOMA Excellence Awards.
Over the next couple weeks we’ll check in with our recipients to find out what the award meant for their team!
Kevin Brees, General Manager, Park Place Shopping Centre, Primaris REIT
Recipient of the EARTH Award
BOMA (B): Why did you decide to submit for the Awards this year?
Kevin (K): We decided to submit this year as the timing seemed appropriate. We have achieved BOMA BESt- Level 4, Certificate of Excellence, as well as the TOBY award at the national level all within the last 3 years. We are now able to focus on enhancing our commitment to the environment and winning the EARTH Award is a reflection of that..
B: What benefit, if any, did you find going through the Awards process?
K: It really made you more aware of all the things you do at the property, not just the big, fun and exciting initiatives, but every one of them. It was a great time to reflect.
B: How has the winning in this category affected your team? Your clients or organization?
K: Our team is extremely excited to have their efforts recognized and look forward to representing Park Place and Primaris on the national stage in September.
B: What would you say to a company or team that is thinking of entering the Awards next year?
K: Do it. Even if you do not win…it is an amazing process that can open and evolve thinking patterns and even the way one may conduct business.
