Participants respond to the question, “What was good about your benchmarking experience?”

“The most beneficial components were when people discussed their problems or issues, and others offered feedback for solutions.  The most interesting parts of the conference were the presentations by Honda and ORNL.  It is always neat to see the photos of the sites.  Before and after photos always make an impact.” —Val Foster, Lockheed Martin

“Benchmarking proves to our principle funders, the Canadian Government’s Treasury Board, that our buildings are among the top performers among many international museums and that requests for additional funding for critical infrastructure repairs are verifiable and legitimate. As a result, our museum has secured additional funding for the next five years to undertake major building repairs and upgrades.” —Guy Larocque, Canadian Museum of Civilization
