Warsaw Project Obtains Pre-Certification in the WELL V2 Core System
13 October 2021|Warsaw, Poland
Warsaw UNIT obtained pre-certification in the WELL v2 Core system. Warsaw UNIT provides 57 thousand square meters of office space on 45 floors.
Certification in the WELL v2 Core system is a new concept. Ghelamco was one of the first developers in Europe to start working on certification in this system. The pilot version of certification conducted by the developer was the basis for the final determination of its formula in the WELL v2 Core version, and the process conducted informed the final shape of the certification procedures.
The score obtained by Warsaw UNIT paves the way for receiving the final certification at the highest possible level. SWECO is responsible for supporting the Ghelamco team and coordinating the WELL certification process for the entire building.
The WELL Building Standard is a multi-criteria building certification system that focuses on the comfort of people inside the building. WELL considers primarily those parameters that affect the health and well-being of facility users. WELL is based on guidelines developed by the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), global Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, emergency management agencies, and recognized organizations such as ASTM International and ASHRAE, as well as leading academic and research institutions.
WELL v2 is a development of WELL v1, drawing on the experience of users and practitioners, as well as the knowledge of researchers and health and construction experts from around the world. The following 10 categories are considered in the certification process: air, water, nutrition, light, movement, thermal comfort, acoustics, materials, mind and community.
To increase the comfort and safety of its users, the project leverages modern technologies, such as a smartphone app that allows users to access their office and invite guests. In addition, during an epidemic emergency, the app will inform users if the building is operating in what is known as "pandemic mode."
