Buildings or projects that display best practice approaches that enhance the health and wellbeing of their occupants, and as such have been verified and certified as "healthy" projects.
Arlington Business Park is the first business park to be awarded Fitwel certification, achieving two stars for wellbeing excellence. Workman (the managing agent) successfully guided Patron Capital (the Landlord) and APAM’s (the Asset Manager) Arlington Business Park through the Fitwel accreditation process, making it the UK’s first asset of this kind to achieve this certification. Through the combination of an engaged asset manager, a proactive on-site team and a centrally controlled project management process administered by Workman’s Sustainability and Wellbeing team, Arlington Business Park was able to benchmark its health and wellbeing performance before developing a number of strategies to improve it. Through an evidence-based 12 section system, Fitwel certifies the wellness credentials of buildings and their surroundings based on criteria such as: Policies encouraging the use of stairwells over lifts; Access to green spaces; Provision of standing desks; Indoor and outdoor amenities such as fitness and gym rooms and walking trails. The Fitwel standard provides a blueprint for making positive changes that are scientifically proven to enhance wellbeing and occupier health.
