    After an eight-year pause, medical office buildings once again are eligible to earn a score of 1-100 from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program. ENERGY STAR scores are updated periodically to manage the impact of changes in building technologies and practices. EPA has partnered with BOMA International since 2004 when it officially launched the Medical Office Building (MOB) ENERGY STAR Score. As was done in 2011, EPA again worked with BOMA and the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) to conduct a survey of healthcare facilities collecting operational characteristics and 2015 energy consumption. The survey reveals new energy use trends in healthcare facilities and has been used to update the ENERGY STAR score models for General Medical & Surgical and Medical Office Buildings. This webinar will feature a panel of industry experts across the healthcare real estate sector and will provide insight on the value and application of ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Updating the scoring algorithm will likely change ENERGY STAR scores of current hospitals and MOBs. Attendees will be informed of the ramifications of these changes through applicable examples from the panel of industry experts, giving insight to better anticipate the impact on attendees’ current or future portfolios. Attendees also will learn how energy intensity has changed in hospitals and medical office buildings over time, further promoting awareness of the vast operational changes occurring within them.

    Tips and Tricks for Property Managers to Handle Tenant Improvement Projects

    Property Managers are now being asked to be construction managers.  Owners are looking for ways to reduce costs and many believe that since they pay a management fee why pay an additional construction manager fee when the property manager is already on the “payroll.”  Many property managers already run large projects, so these skills are transferable.  This ability to handle construction projects is a value enhanced service that property managers can offer their clients and will provide the property manager with better control over the project and how it impacts the asset.

    At the end of the session, participants will:

    • Describe the project process steps from beginning to completion
    • Discuss how this additional construction management skill set will provide a value enhanced service that third party providers can offer their clients
    • Highlight how fees earned will make the property management unit more profitable and not go to another entity

    Taking Control and Managing Costs with Rising Industrial Real Estate Insurance Rates

    Hard hit by costly catastrophic claims, the property insurance market will continue to “harden” in the coming year. Fewer insurance carriers are willing to underwrite risks, and the ones that have the appetite to do so are likely to increase their premiums. What are the causes for these massive increases and is this a global problem?  As a commercial real estate professional, there are immediate steps and best practices you can enact, from an insurance perspective, to reduce risk and manage your insurance costs, such as higher deductibles, self-insuring and increased security measures.  Learn which coverage lines (general liability, property, pollution, flood, etc.) are seeing premium increases and whether COVID will have an even further impact on rates increases.

    At the end of this session, participants will:

    • Discuss strategies to decrease insurance costs
    • Compare geographic areas or types of buildings that are seeing higher increases than other areas
    • Describe the insurance market outlook on future rates and whether they will stabilize or continue to increase
