Lendlease to co-develop WELL Portfolio

9 Jun 2017

Last week, the International WELL Building Institute announced Lendlease as part of the consortium to develop the WELL Portfolio.

A roundtable of companies, including CBRE Group Inc., Hines and Lendlease, will develop a pathway within the WELL Building Standard that rewards commitment to ongoing enhancements to existing buildings, with a focus on policies, programs, procurement guidelines and plans that can be applied across a portfolio of buildings.

Rick Fedrizzi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of International WELL Building Institute said, “We believe this new approach can introduce immediate and measurable performance improvements and allow projects to earn recognition for their achievements, reducing fees and overall costs in the process.”

Lendlease has already reached key milestones with the WELL Building Standard. In 2015, we announced a global partnership with Delos to accelerate the integration of health and wellness in the built environment.

International Towers Sydney at Barangaroo South is undertaking Performance Verification for Core and Shell certification under the WELL Building Standard, the first project globally to do so. Our own tenancy at Barangaroo South in Australia is targeting WELL Platinum for its fit out.

Contributing the Barangaroo’s WELL certification is the Wellness Hub in Tower Three. It’s Lendlease employees’ one-stop space for wellness. It has a suite of dedicated rooms, including the Consultation Room, the Contemplation Room, the Carer’s Room and the First Aid Room. It also has adjoining spaces for training and activities, such as yoga, Pilates and guest speakers.

Across the sea, our development, Paya Lebar Quarter will hold the first buildings in Singapore to register for WELL certification.

Paul Scialla, Founder and CEO of Delos, said, “Lendlease’s pioneering leadership will help shape the evolution of health and wellness in real estate globally, just as it has helped to set the pace in sustainability....”

We are committed to taking care of the people who keep our company thriving. Our goal is to create a workplace that’s supports people to seek happy, healthy and productive lives.
