The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) of Greater Phoenix has named a Hines employee the Building Engineer of the Year. Robert Bonilla’s peers nominated him for the honor.

“This award is a direct reflection of the respect that Robert has gained among his colleagues in the Phoenix market and in the industry,” said Chris Anderson, managing director of Hines. “Robert’s tireless efforts as a leader in energy reduction and sustainability make him an invaluable asset to Hines.”

Bonilla is the general engineering manager at Renaissance Square. Since Hines acquired the property in 2007, Bonilla has led Renaissance Square to six consecutive ENERGY STAR(R) certifications, as well as a LEED(R) Gold certification. In 2013, the property won BOMA of Greater Phoenix’s Kilowatt Krackdown award for having the highest reduction in kilowatt hours (kWH) year after year for a building over 500,000 square feet. Bonilla celebrated his 18th year at Hines this January.
