San Francisco Ferry Building Marks First Fitwel Certified Building in Company’s Portfolio
In an ongoing commitment to create properties that foster health and sustainability, Hudson Pacific Properties joined the Fitwel Champions Program, the world’s leading certification system for optimizing building design and operations to support human health and well-being.
The San Francisco Ferry Building marks the first Fitwel certified property in the company’s portfolio, delivering an optimal environment for tenants, employees and customers alike. In addition to being newly certified, the Ferry Building is the location of Fitwel’s 2020 Best in Building Health event on February 27 to honor innovation within the Fitwel community.
“Joining the Fitwel Champions Program advances our current sustainability strategies and prioritizes building health and wellness for the long-term,” said Natalie Teear, Vice President, Sustainability and Social Impact. “It is our responsibility to create exceptional spaces that allow occupants to thrive every day, and we are proud that the Ferry Building has been recognized with a Fitwel certification as one of those spaces. We look forward to adding more Fitwel certified properties to our portfolio this year.”
As a Fitwel Champion, Hudson Pacific will implement the Fitwel Standard, which includes the integration of smart workplace design and operational policies to optimize building occupant health and productivity across its portfolio. The company plans to pursue Fitwel certification for five additional properties by year-end.
Fitwel was created by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. General Services Administration. The Center for Active Design, a global not-for-profit organization, was selected as the licensed operator of Fitwel, charged with expanding Fitwel to the global market.
