The Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA) recently designated the Hess Tower in Houston as a BOMA 360 Performance Building, according to an official CBRE press statement. The designation recognizes the industry’s best practices in building operations and management.

The 29-story tower was developed by Trammell Crow Co. with the help of architectural firm Gensler and has been under CBRE’s management since late 2011. The tower is LEED Platinum certified and has received Energy Star designations for the past two years.

Amenities include bike storage, two electric vehicle-charging stations available for employees free of charge and a full-service fitness center. Other distinguishing design elements are the tower’s plaza, the porte cochere entrance, landscaping and the tower’s cascading water elements.

The building received its designation for the implementation of sustainable features such as the use of energy recovery units, its green roof, and the use of a condensate recovery irrigation system and an automated daylighting system.

“We are proud to designate Hess Tower as a BOMA 360 Performance Building in recognition of the high standards the management team has achieved in every aspect of building operations and management,” said BOMA International Chair Joseph Markling, managing director at CBRE, in an official statement. “By achieving the BOMA 360 designation, the management of Hess Tower has demonstrated to their owners, tenants, prospective tenants and the community that this property is being managed to the highest standards of excellence.”
