Improving Buildings with Fitwel Standards
Previously, we talked about the Fitwel Standard and the categories that they look at in determining how health-conscious a commercial building’s design is. Here we are going to dive into their 6 strategies for workplace buildings.
Here are some of the methods Fitwel proposes for making more beneficial private structures:
Habitable Units – offering sunlight, operable shading and views at workspaces to help with diminishing morbidity and enhancing solace, while additionally imparting feelings of prosperity.
Shared Spaces – building kitchen offices and activity space to advance wellbeing outside of the individual workspace.
Water Supply – making ADA compliant water supply available on each floor to permit occupants access to freshwater. Read more in our article. “Why Providing Employees With Great Water Is Necessary.”
Eateries and Groceries – building up principles for sound nourishment and refreshments that must be met by all on location sit-down cafés to expand access to more beneficial eateries and sustenance decisions.
Snack Bars and Vending machines – offering price discounts for healthy snacks to help invert the adverse wellbeing effects of conventional vending machines.
Crisis Procedures – giving an Automated External Defibrillator and related testing timetable to improve coordination and practicality of crisis reaction.
