With the recent outbreak of COVID-19, we are changing the way we work, live, play and learn. This virus will likely bring about some lasting changes that may help to prevent or better prepare us for the future. Some of these changes are already reflected in building certification programs such as Green Globes, WELL, and Fitwel and new ratings that were developed as a direct response to COVID-19. Third-party building certification programs support safe and healthy environments for occupants, tenants and visitors. Ensuring that sustainable cleaning products are being used throughout the building, promoting physical activity and movement among building occupants, and creating a safe and welcoming environment for everyone are aspects considered as part of the process. These important attributes from certification programs support building occupant health year-round and in “normal times,” not just during a pandemic.
Potential building certification benefits include:
• Higher rental or resale value
• Higher occupant & tenant satisfaction
• Higher worker productivity safety
• Wellbeing of occupant & tenant
• Lower operating costs
