The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards are the most prestigious and comprehensive programs of their kind in the commercial real estate industry recognizing outstanding performance in buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.

In addition to being a competition, the TOBY program promotes the pursuit of excellence, provides a platform to benchmark in specific areas of management, and recognizes outstanding performance in a variety of building categories.

During the competition, all facets of a building’s operations are thoroughly evaluated by a team of judges. Buildings are evaluated on Life Safety, Security, Risk Management, Training and Education, Energy, Environmental Sustainability, Tenant Relations and Community Involvement.
