COMPLEXITY IS ONE OF THE GREAT PROBLEMS IN ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN
— Christopher Alexander

SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENTS

We look to simplify the complexity of environmental design for our clients through our four step process to deliver sustainable success.

  • We use the USGBC "LEED" rating as our international benchmark assesment standard.
  • We deliver a bespoke LEED audit in the early design stage of each project.
  • We incorporate the projects sustainability requirments directly into the design documentation.
  • We manage all the GBCI online project documentation requirements.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and General Services Administration (GSA) have recently developed a new certification for healthy buildings. This new rating system introduces a user-friendly, intuitive, and affordable approach to not only achieve healthy building certification, but also to create an environment in which employees are happier, healthier, and more productive.

for healthy architecture

Fitwel is designed to be used for a variety of space types including existing buildings, new buildings, and tenant spaces. Unlike most green building rating systems, there are no pre-requisites or mandatory requirements that could be cost-prohibitive or unsuitable for a specific building type. Additionally, certification costs and documentation requirements are considerably less than those of comparable rating systems, making Fitwel a great first step for building owners interested in building or improving their space to increase occupant health and productivity.

HOW DOES IT WORK ?

Fitwel is administered by the Center for Active Design (CfAD), and is made up of sixty-three evidence-based design and policy strategies, each of which supports at least one of seven health impact categories. These strategies include incentives for the availability of a fitness center, lactation room, water filling station, quiet room, access to a walking trail, and healthy food options, among several others. Facilities that achieve a Fitwel score of ninety or above are considered Fitwel certified at one of three levels, based upon the number of points achieved
