BOMA produces articles from time to time to benefit its members. These articles are sponsored by BOMA Committees, and deal with a variety of topics. 

Fan Wall Technology - Unlike other fan arrays available today, a FANWALL system is more than off-the-shelf fans and motors arranged in an array. It incorporates FANWALL TECHNOLOGY — invented and manufactured specifically for fan array systems — to create a fully-integrated and engineered system of state-of-the-art fans, motors, cabinetry, controls, and accessories that can be easily blended to match new construction and retrofit application requirements. 

Backflow Prevention Program - The City of Ottawa is developing a new Backflow Prevention Program to prevent the backflow of contaminated water from buildings connected to the City’s drinking water system. The program’s intent is to comply with the highest industry drinking water protection standards, ensure public safety, and address the last unmitigated risk to the drinking water system. The Backflow Prevention Program will start in 2017 and be phased in over five years. How will this affect you and what will it cost you?

Economic Impact Assessment - If the City’s annual economic impacts were extended over the longer-term, and given potential future expansion of Ottawa’s commercial sectors, the total impact of the City’s commercial real estate industry would be increasingly significant. A simple extrapolation of the $2.6 billion over the past decade yields an order of magnitude of some $26 billion in impact to the City of Ottawa over this period. As such, the City’s business leaders and government officials need to clearly understand the industry’s impact and effectively engage with the local commercial real estate community, to ensure that appropriate decisions are made to effectively support and meet the needs of this very important industry.
