A1 Orange asked Terri Walther, Senior Property Manager with Parmenter in Lake Mary, FL, to share what she has learned on her journey to winning the coveted 2018 International BOMA TOBY Award. Her TOBY career began in 2002, when she competed with Eola Park Centre in the Renovated Building Category, winning local and regional awards. Over the next 15 years, she had numerous wins at the local and regional levels, but never international until this year.
Following in the wake of Hurricane Irma and last year’s active hurricane season, our “wetter than usual” summer rainy season has revealed more extensive water intrusion problems for many properties. Unfortunately, many properties are discovering that these water leaks are indicating the breakdown of entire building joints and joint systems. When joint systems fail, they require complete re-caulking – removing old caulk which has deteriorated and replacing it with quality, manufacturer-recommended products.
Safety is always our #1 priority. A1 Orange is excited to be participating in OSHA’s Safe + Sound Week, August 13-19. We are planning incentives to make it fun for our workers to think about safety this week. Both field and office staff are participating in special safety activities and trainings in areas identified by managers and workers and assigning teams to look for any possible office and warehouse safety hazards.
