TOBY Think your property could be the best in class? Get recognized for it!  We invite you to participate in the 2018 TOBY Competition!
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 quality in buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.   Winning a TOBY is the ultimate designation of excellence; recognizing best in class ownership, management and operational practices. 

All buildings from your company are eligible to participate!
Pride of ownership and great performance should be recognized. If the management team on a project is the best, then show it! Participation builds teamwork and cooperation with service providers and employees who work every day to make a property stand out.

How it works: Determine your building category, then submit the Call for Submissions Registration Form.  Entry Deadline is September 1.
Interested in participating but don't know what to expect? We're here to help you prepare for this year's competition! 
We have brought together a panel of your colleagues and past winners to walk you through the process - what needs to be done to enter the competition; who should be included in your team; preparing your property; the inspection process, official TOBY requirements and the time line for this year's events.  The Local, Regional and International Competition protocol will be covered.
