Kingsley Associates and BOMA have released the Autumn 2011 edition of the BOMA-Kingsley Report, a semiannual paper that takes an in-depth look at big topics in the office building industry. An analysis of data from the 2011 Experience Exchange Report (EER) forms the centerpiece of this issue, with a key finding being that office building owners and managers were able to hold costs relatively stable last year. In fact, utility expenses and property taxes both fell by substantial margins over the prior year – at least in terms of the national average.
The current issue also includes several other features:
- “The Numbers Tell the Story” analyzes some major expense line items across building types and major markets.
- A panel of leading industry figures look toward the future of performance measurement in “The Next Generation of Benchmarking.”
- In “Deconstructing Density,” BOMA’s Laura Horsley investigates the acceleration of tradition-challenging methods of using office space.
