85 Bluxome earned WELL Core & Shell Compliance as one of the very first WELL projects registered under the Pilot program. The WELL Building Standard was quickly developing during the planning and construction of the new office development, which allowed the team the opportunity to upgrade many of the features to WELL version 1. The project also earned LEEDv2009 Core & Shell Gold certification, a San Francisco requirement for new construction commercial buildings. The emerging wellness trend in real estate motivated the developer to pursue WELL Certification in hopes of differentiating the property and attracting a tenant committed to the health and wellness of its employees. WELL highlights of the new office development include a 5-story interconnecting stair for interior fitness circulation, a rooftop deck providing access to the outdoors, enhanced air filtration media, and floor to ceiling windows for ample daylight and views to the San Francisco skyline.

While simple in nature, the Core & Shell Compliance Pilot was somewhat challenging due to the emergence of WELL version 1 as various project features were upgraded while others were maintained per the Pilot. Core & Shell Compliance project teams should be mindful of the Performance Verification timeline so that it does not interfere with the move-in or construction of the future tenant occupying the space.
