    Collapse Can You Hear Me Now? The Importance of Wireless Coverage in Buildings

    Smartphones and tablets are a mainstay of American business today. With more than 70% of cellular calls taking place indoors, a satisfactory wireless experience is increasingly important to prospective tenants looking to lease commercial real estate. Just as companies had to wire their buildings to meet Internet demand, planning for adequate wireless coverage should be part of today’s blueprints. Yet many of the decisions to improve coverage and capacity on site seem outside the owner/property manager’s control. Even worse, making the wrong technology decisions can be expensive and result in cost overruns, increased construction times, and even the rip-and-replace of wireless and mobile networks.

    This paradigm shift is forcing building owners and managers, wireless service providers, systems integrators and equipment manufacturers to cooperate more closely than ever. This webinar will present an overview of today’s wireless networks and discuss the various technologies available for building owners and managers to provide robust coverage throughout their venues. We will explore Distributed Antenna Systems, small cells (picocells, femtocells and more) as well as Wi-Fi connectivity. Further, we will discuss business and ownership models in practice today.

    Collapse Life Cycle Costing for Preventive Maintenance Measures

    Building owners and managers who do not regularly perform preventive maintenance measures for buildings and equipment will see the life cycle of those assets slashed significantly. In fact, those who defer maintenance can count on paying several times more than the total repair cost in the future. 

    This webinar will discuss solutions to proactively manage the growing list of maintenance needs that building owners and managers face today. Owners and managers not only end up paying more for repairs that have been delayed, they may end up on a downward spiral resulting in difficulty selling or leasing properties.

    Hear a discussion on best practices in performing regular facility assessments. You will learn how to use Life Cycle Cost Data to plan and budget for future repairs, and predict how costs will escalate over time. Learn how to use the cost data to make a business case to others to tackle preventive maintenance needs to avoid future backlogs.

    Collapse PACE Financing for Commercial Real Estate

    Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) is a powerful financing tool for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water management upgrades to buildings. PACE financing is provided or arranged by a unit of local government and is then repaid, over a term of up to 20 years or more, as an assessment on the property's tax bill. Like other property taxes and assessments, PACE assessments can remain with a property upon sale of a building, and may be more easily shared with tenants.

    Over just the last three years, projects ranging from $50 thousand to $7 million have been completed for nearly every type of commercial building. PACE financing can make even long pay-back projects immediately cash flow positive, and may be the ideal solution for projects with clear benefit that owners and managers are unwilling to consider with traditional financing methods.

    Collapse You CAN Always Get What You Want: The Basics of Lease Negotiation

    Effectively negotiating a lease or lease renewal is perhaps the very best way to create value for the owner of a commercial property.

    By learning to negotiate (and how to respond to your counterpart’s negotiation tactics), you CAN often get what you want. In many cases, your negotiating counterpart can get what he/she wants too. This outcome – called WIN/WIN – is an outcome that not only leaves both parties feeling like the negotiation was a success, but it also encourages the parties to do business again. However, a WIN/WIN outcome is not always either possible or desired. Sometimes, the negotiator desires to maximize his/her outcome at the expense of the other party (referred to as WIN/lose). Either way, there are basic negotiation tactics that, when practiced and refined, can help YOU achieve the outcome you desire.

    Even though a commercial lease might be dozens of pages long, only certain lease clauses are commonly negotiated. Knowing what those clauses are – and how to protect the owner’s interests when your counterpart requests changes to them – is a powerful way to prepare for a lease negotiation.

    Join us for this webinar to gain a better understanding of basic lease negotiation principles and an understanding of those lease provisions that are typically subject to negotiation.

    Collapse What

    Get your rulers ready! BOMA International has completely revised its office building measurement standard, first published in 1915 and last revised in 1996. Coined the "BOMA Standard" by practitioners for its widespread use, the publication has been revised periodically to reflect the changing needs of the real estate market and the evolution of office building design. The 2010 version signifies a major revision, including a new name, Office Buildings: Methods of Measurement and Calculating Rentable Area. The standard provides a uniform basis for measuring rentable area in both existing and new office buildings by taking a building-wide approach to floor area measurement. It provides a methodology for measuring both occupant space as well as the space that benefits all occupants. The new standard has been reorganized to present information in a more logical and easy to find order, with a downloadable format that includes hyperlinks throughout the document text, expanded definitions and 45 full-color illustrations.

    Collapse It

    Reconciling year-end operating expense escalations and justifying calculations to tenants and auditors can be a daunting task for property managers, accountants and asset managers. Depending on your lease structure, escalations can represent between 10 to 40% of an office building's revenues, so it's critical to tenants and landlords alike that escalations be done correctly. 

    In response to a recent questionnaire sent to previous webinar participants, experts Bill Brownfield, CRE, CCIM, and Larry Mayerhofer, CPA, Principals of Brownfield and Mayerhofer and authors of BOMA's longstanding publication the Escalation Handbook for Office Buildings, have a plan to help you with your escalations and promise to clear up confusion about the escalation process.

    Collapse PACE Financing for Commercial Real Estate

    Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) is a powerful financing tool for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water management upgrades to buildings. PACE financing is provided or arranged by a unit of local government and is then repaid, over a term of up to 20 years or more, as an assessment on the property's tax bill. Like other property taxes and assessments, PACE assessments can remain with a property upon sale of a building, and may be more easily shared with tenants.

    Over just the last three years, projects ranging from $50 thousand to $7 million have been completed for nearly every type of commercial building. PACE financing can make even long pay-back projects immediately cash flow positive, and may be the ideal solution for projects with clear benefit that owners and managers are unwilling to consider with traditional financing methods.

    Collapse You CAN Always Get What You Want: The Basics of Lease Negotiation

    Effectively negotiating a lease or lease renewal is perhaps the very best way to create value for the owner of a commercial property.

    By learning to negotiate (and how to respond to your counterpart’s negotiation tactics), you CAN often get what you want. In many cases, your negotiating counterpart can get what he/she wants too. This outcome – called WIN/WIN – is an outcome that not only leaves both parties feeling like the negotiation was a success, but it also encourages the parties to do business again. However, a WIN/WIN outcome is not always either possible or desired. Sometimes, the negotiator desires to maximize his/her outcome at the expense of the other party (referred to as WIN/lose). Either way, there are basic negotiation tactics that, when practiced and refined, can help YOU achieve the outcome you desire.

    Even though a commercial lease might be dozens of pages long, only certain lease clauses are commonly negotiated. Knowing what those clauses are – and how to protect the owner’s interests when your counterpart requests changes to them – is a powerful way to prepare for a lease negotiation.

    Join us for this webinar to gain a better understanding of basic lease negotiation principles and an understanding of those lease provisions that are typically subject to negotiation.

    Collapse Industrial Properties: Best Practices and New Ideas

At the same time, tenant demand for high quality warehouse facilities has increased exponentially as on–line retailers like Amazon have become an increasingly larger aspect of the US economy.
