Fitwel Building Health Certification is the world’s leading certification system that’s committed to building health for all.
Wellness Building Certification
Consideration of sustainability principles in the building industry is vital for the natural environment and human beings. The design of a building also has a big impact on the health, well-being, and productivity of its occupants.
Therefore we do not just look at the design with a low carbon and energy efficient approach, we also look at the environmental and health factors of the building e.g. fresh supply of air and daylight.
Fitwel Building Health Certification is part of a range of wellness building standards that deliver an occupant-centric solution which have gained significant momentum during COVID-19.
Fitwel Building Health Certification
Fitwel is the leading global health certification system, generated by expert analysis of over 3,000 academic research studies, which uniquely allows a portfolio or single project-based approach.
At Lawler Sustainability, we are fortunate enough to have a number of qualified Fitwel ambassadors, capable of assessing buildings to ensure they are designed and operated in a way that supports the health, wellbeing, and productivity of their occupants.
A Fitwel certification is essentially a signal to employees, residents, investors, and other stakeholders that you prioritise wellness within the design, development, and operations of buildings and communities.
The Fitwel certification has been adopted for prestigious buildings like the new NTMA Building on North Dublin Docks, and in companies like Bouygues Construction for their own fit-out in London. Our team is currently conducting a Fitwel assessment of a building located in Kilkenny, owned by State Street Corporation.
