Mirvac awarded first Gold Well Certification in Australia
Mirvac’s headquarters at EY Centre, 200 George Street is the first tenancy in Australia to receive a Gold WELL Certification from the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI). Chairman and CEO of IWBI, Rick Fedrizzi, presented the certification at an event on 6 March 2017.
The WELL Building Standard is an innovative evidence-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring the performance of building features that focuses solely on the health and wellbeing of its occupants, harnessing the built environment as a vehicle to support human health. To secure the certification, Mirvac achieved credits across the WELL Building Standard’s seven categories, including air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. This is a significant achievement for Mirvac, who are the first company in Australia to secure a GOLD WELL Certification and one of only six in the world!
Mirvac pursued the certification as it aligned with the vision for our new headquarters - to create a building that educates tenants through design, form and function so employees and visitors go home smarter and healthier. We now have a unique understanding of the WELL Certification and will share this knowledge with future customers and the wider industry. This will also inform our projects and better support our customer’s goals to build sustainable workplaces of the future.
