Optimizing Your Properties to Support Health

We all know about LEED. Ensuring our buildings are following Green practices has become second nature in our business. But what about the health and wellbeing of those that work in our buildings? Meet Fitwel - Fitwel is a tool developed by the Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the General Services Administration (GSA) to help guide building owners and managers to make building improvements that would positively impact employee health and productivity. It focuses on items like stairwell design, access to healthy food options and water, increased opportunities for physical activity.

Lisa Pool with Perkins+Will will teach us everything we need to know about Fitwel, why it’s important, and how to certify your buildings. Lisa has not only been involved in the Fitwel certification process, but her firm pledged to adopt Fitwel and certify all of their North America offices, with Minneapolis being one of the first locations to get certified in 2016.

Fitwel is designed for both residential and commercial properties and even if you or your owner aren’t currently in a position to certify your buildings, understanding how to help make your building occupants healthier and happier is a win-win for everyone.

We hope to see you on May 8th!

The program has been approved for 1 hour of Real Estate Continuing Educational Credit by the Minnesota Department of Commerce.
