Vancouver, BC (January 20, 2020) – Cadillac Fairview is pleased to announce it has achieved its first Fitwel certification at HSBC building located at 885 West Georgia at CF Pacific Centre in Vancouver, BC.
Fitwel certification is designed for optimizing building performance to support healthier workplace environments and improve occupant productivity. At the HSBC building, Fitwel certification was achieved by addressing a broad range of health behaviors and risks, such as enabling and promoting access to stairwells, access to nature-filled walking trails, and bicycle parking infrastructure, just to name a few.
“This certification is an example of CF’s ongoing efforts to deliver significant value to our clients that helps drive the success of their businesses, while further demonstrating our commitment to sustainability and corporate responsibility,” said Sal Iacono, Executive Vice President of Operations, Cadillac Fairview. “Today, leading businesses are looking beyond traditional health and benefits programs to support the wellbeing of their people, and many have come to realize that real estate can play a profound role in fostering a healthier, higher-performing workforce.”
This new certification builds on HSBC building’s 2019 industry achievements including LEED Performance Path Platinum and Energy Star Certification.
