Tenant Improvement

This award recognizes the best tenant improvement project for a commercial building. The award encompasses planning, design quality, cost effectiveness, use of base building elements, creativity, functionality, tenant/landlord satisfaction and adaptability for future tenant use.


In order to be eligible for the Tenant Improvement of the Year award:

  • This is a self-nominated award that all architectural and design companies, or a landlord, may enter.
  • The project must have occurred in a BOMA member building.
  • The project must have been completed in 2020.
  • The project may be either for a new tenancy or renovation of an existing tenancy. In the case of renovation, it should be significant involving re-planning to achieve functional improvements to the space rather than simply a cosmetic upgrade.
