CBRE Vancouver Office Receives Canada’s First Multi-Floor Tenant WELL Building Certification
Vancouver, BC: Congratulations to the CBRE for being awarded WELL Certification for New and Existing Interiors at the Gold Level by the International WELL Building Institute for their CBRE Vancouver Office. The WELL Building Certification recognizes exceptionally healthy and sustainable developments, promoting only the elite of the elite. Integral Group provided mechanical, electrical and LEED compliance energy modeling services to this people-centric project.
The WELL Building Standard uses seven concepts to judge buildings – air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. A WELL Certified space is one that excels and improves its users experience in all these categories, while exceeding industry averages in performance and sustainability. The certification has three possible ranking levels depending on project excellence: Silver, Gold and Platinum. CBRE offices Gold Certification proves their dedication to increasing performance and experience within built environments.
“Our decision to be first-movers in pursuing this pioneering certification reflects our belief that the office environment can, and should, add to the health of your people, and that true market leadership is about taking bold steps for the future. Thirty years ago, we brought the open-concept office to our industry across Canada and, today, we again break new ground by creating one of the first workplaces in the country to actively promote employee health and wellness,” said Mark Renzoni, President and CEO of CBRE Canada.
This WELL Certification is the first one to ever be issued to a multi-floor interior in Canada, and the first in Vancouver overall. CBRE is one of the first organizations in Canada to adopt this new certification in a meaningful way, and is responsible for four out of the first 10 WELL Registered projects in Canada. Integral Group is proud to work with such a passionate firm and contribute to trail-blazing projects such as CBRE’s recently certified Vancouver office.
