Health and Wellness in the Built Environment

The people inside your buildings are as important as building performance.

Smart, talented people are the driving force behind every business and are your biggest investment – over time, occupants account for 93% of building portfolio costs. The best sustainability strategies address how the built environment affects human health and wellness.

The data demonstrates how air quality, daylight, workspace ergonomics, movement, and access to outdoors positively affects cognitive function, health, productivity, engagement, retention, and business performance.

well4Paladino’s team includes the first WELL Accredited Professionals in the country with WELL APs in our Seattle and DC offices. We develop holistic workplace strategies that address occupant wellness for the greater good of the company. Our offering is based on integrated services delivered through our talent management, technical services, and commissioning executive team members. We create the objectives with the client executive team, and write the road map for implementation. And every project is measured against an expected ROTC – return on talent capital.

How well is your workplace? Contact us to find out.
