Hines maintains properties at a measurably higher level than the industry. Why? Because it is a good business decision that increases value. Their success starts with design, adds well trained operators and invokes a discipline that ensures consistency. Result: A property remains in near-new condition. We at I. A. Naman + Associates, Inc. use Hines properties as a reference, especially with our new people, as to how operation and maintenance should be performed. Charles E. Durrett, P. E.
