This designation also gives BAC the capability to provide green cleaning services that will assist customers in achieving points under the LEEDExisting Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED-EBOM) Green Building Rating System.
“We are extremely pleased to not only achieve the certification, but also be so highly rated by ISSA,” said Wayne Wells, vice president of operations. “Earning this certification demonstrates to our existing and potential custodial customers that we are committed to the delivery of environmentally preferable services that are not only designed to meet their needs and expectations, but also assist them in achieving points in the LEED process.”
