“You guys get it.”
Our client called us for a reason. His goal was to maximize rental income from a new building, and we understood that. So we measured the space with that in mind and found a way to maximize rentable square feet. That’s precisely what keeps him coming back — our uncanny ability to manage and meet expectations.
After more than 35 years, this same level of care and consideration still informs everything we do. We continue to draw inspiration from those we serve, understanding your intentions and meticulously looking for ways to transform your vision, passion and commitment into inspiring spaces that enhance the way you work.

Going green is responsible environmental stewardship. But utilizing our LEED consulting and certification expertise can produce tangible business benefits. Consider Northern Trust, whose electrical costs for a LEED Silver facility decreased significantly compared to other properties — almost 30% to be exact.
Our work on BOMA Chicago’s office space also speaks to the value and esprit de corps that comes from sound and sustainable corporate interiors. The BOMA LEED Silver Certification featured customized design utilizing environmentally sensitive finishes, furnishings and appliances, such as:
InterfaceFLOR carpet tiles that are designed to offset greenhouse gas emissions throughout the carpet’s entire lifetime—from original manufacture to installation to reclamation to recycling
Low-VOC-emitting air adhesives, sealants and paint
Energy Star-certified refrigerator, dishwasher, printers and other appliances
By the project’s completion the MRSA team had diverted more than 80 percent of all construction waste--well over the 60 percent mandated by the city of Chicago ordinances. This included nearly three tons of metal, 4.5 tons of drywall and almost 3.5 tons of carpet, which was reclaimed by the manufacturer. The location of BOMA/Chicago’s offices inside the Harris Bank Building also offers inherent green components. It is accessible to public transportation and offers complimentary storage space for bicycles, as well as showers and changing areas for bicycle and pedestrian commuters.
Our measurement services offer property owners and asset managers the potential to make their facilities more marketable, competitive and profitable. It optimizes the floor plate design of new buildings and puts established properties on equal footing with new construction with contemporary accoutrements.
It is also an opportunity to take advantage of MRSA proprietary technologies that go beyond mere square footage. We give you a comprehensive data warehouse of even the most minute details of every property. Minutia that often leads to higher valuations and increased revenue growth opportunities.
Our measurement and re-measurement services comply with BOMA standards, including the newly introduced 2010 Method A+B measurement standards.
