ENERGY STAR® Certified Buildings
LBA is a five-time recipient of the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award for outstanding efforts in energy management and has been recognized as a premier member of the ENERGY STAR Certification Nation. LBA tracks all office buildings and industrial where feasible, in Portfolio Manager and demonstrates the commitment to save energy, protect the environment and conserve for the future through obtaining ENERGY STAR certifications. ENERGY STAR certified buildings use 35% less energy and cause 35% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than similar buildings.
LEED Certified Buildings
LBA is a gold member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and utilizes LEED as a framework to ensure we are operating all of our buildings with the highest standards of building operations and efficiency.
BOMA 360 is a commercial real estate designation developed by the Building Owners and Managers Association International (BOMA) that recognizes all-around excellence in building operations and management. Unlike typical “green” rating programs, BOMA 360 looks at all areas of a building’s operations and management, including energy and sustainability.
The Fitwel program was created by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the General Services Administration to optimize healthy buildings, decrease disease, improve mental health, encourage social interaction, and increase civic trust and overall well-being. LBA has achieved a Fitwel certification and is actively in process of certifying additional buildings across the portfolio. We will continue to expand this program as LBA is committed to health and wellness in all of our buildings.
UL Verified Healthy Building Program
LBA is committed to providing a healthy work environment for our customers, visitors and team members. Demonstrating this commitment, LBA has partnered with UL to verify our Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Program by enrolling the LBA office portfolio in the UL Verified Healthy Building Program. Participants achieve the UL Verified Healthy Building Mark by verifying building health and IEQ.
LBA has achieved Tier 3 verification for Indoor Environment at our office properties. To earn the UL Verification Mark, the buildings undergo a rigorous, science-based assessment which includes visual on-site inspections and performance testing to evaluate a range of building conditions. To maintain verification, the properties will undergo on-site inspections twice a year to ensure excellent indoor environmental quality performance.

Principal Real Estate Investors, LBA’s joint venture partner, has recognized LBA with the 2019, 2020 and 2021 Cornerstone Award for their operational achievements at the premier office property, Park Place in Irvine, CA.

This award is part of the Pillars of Responsible Property Investing (PRPI) initiative, which was established by Principal in order to outline their commitment to incorporating environmental, social and governance issues into real estate investment practices.
