Around the world, we are the second WSP office to have been given this rating, after our Birmingham office in the UK.
Combined with the building’s existing 5 Star Green Star As Built Rating and 5 Star NABERS energy rating, this new certification further illustrates our ongoing commitment to promote occupant health and wellbeing to support the physical, mental and social health for all our employees and visitors in a sustainable workplace.
Fitwel is the world’s leading certification system for buildings and communities that optimises buildings to support health.
“Located at 900 Ann Street in Fortitude Valley, our new Brisbane office is focused on increasing activity, mental wellbeing and collaboration,” explains Ben Gibbs, our Fitwel Ambassador. “The biophilic workplace design includes a diverse selection of over 1000 plants and daylight, and provides active floorplans supporting our people’s needs to interact with others or access quiet spaces suitable for reflection. There are numerous desk choices including sit-to-stand desks and exercise bikes with laptop stands, internal stairs connecting the four floors, a large communal space and extensive end of trip facilities all aim to improve activity for our people throughout the day. The building location provides further opportunities to promote physical activity by being positioned close to numerous amenities, services and public transport options.”
