Office spaces are typically grouped into three classes. According to BOMA (Builidng Owners and Manager Association), these classes represent a semi-subjective quality rating of buildings which indicates the competitive ability of each building to attract similar types of tenants. A combination of factors including rent, building finishes, system standards and efficiency, building amenities, location/accessibility and market perception are used as relative measures.

The purpose of the rating system is to encourage standardization of discussion concerning office markets, including individual buildings and to encourage the reporting of office market conditions that differentiate among the classes.

Class A
Most prestigious buildings competing for premier office users with rents above average for the area. Buildings have high quality standard finishes, state of the art systems, exceptional accessibility and a definite market presence.

Class B
Buildings competing for a wide range of users with rents in the average range for the area. Building finishes are fair to good for the area. Building finishes are fair to good for the area and systems are adequate, but the building does not compete with Class A at the same price.

Class C
Buildings competing for tenants requiring functional space at rents below the average for the area.

Just like office buildings, there are multiple classes of cleaning companies. Different companies focus on different segments. At Summit Building Services, we clean buildings in each category, but we feel that each class of buildings deserves Class A service from their cleaning company.
