Each year the TOBY (The Outstanding Building of the Year) Awards recognize the best and brightest in property management, building operations, and service in the real estate industry. There are 16 categories for The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards and 9 categories for the Industry Awards. Since the TOBYs are nationally recognized, the local winners move on to the regional competition, and hopefully the international competition.
Congratulations to our Boston team and most importantly congratulations to Dan Fitzgerald for winning the BOMA Boston Chief Engineer of the Year. This is Able’s second year in a row winning the Engineer of the year award in Boston. “As a leader, Dan sets the example by his own actions and attitude towards his work. He takes enormous pride in what he does and treats the property like his own. Dan inspires others through his professionalism and we are privileged to have him as an employee of Able Services,” said Dennis O’Brien, Engineering Manager, Able Services.
Recently, through his role at Copley Place, Dan has overseen renovation of the office and retail common areas, construction of the southwest corner of the building, and near simultaneous build-outs of tens of thousands of square feet of office and tenant space. Additionally, he had extensive working relationships with architects, engineers, contractors, and permitting authorities in preparation for the commencement of the center’s massive recent addition and retail expansion. Through all of this, Dan holds the primary role in the development, documentations, implementations, and management of Copley Place’s NFPA 241 Program. In fact, Dan’s extensive knowledge of NFPA 241 translated into a presentation at a BOMA Boston Engineering Committee meeting, where he facilitated an education presentation and guided open discussion with committee members regarding the plan.
