IPUT plc is pleased to announce that its newly developed offices at 47-49 St. Stephen’s Green is WELL Certified Gold. In achieving this certification IPUT becomes the first WELL certified office in Dublin and only the second in Ireland.
The WELL Building Standard is delivered by The International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) and is the leading standard for benchmarking buildings and interior spaces on their commitment to human health and wellness. The WELL standard is based around seven categories of building performance including: air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.
“We congratulate IPUT for achieving WELL Certified™Gold for their office at St. Stephen’s Green in Dublin,” said IWBI Chairman and CEO Rick Fedrizzi. “IPUT’s market-leading efforts to advance health and well-being through their own office demonstrates to their employees and the Irish industry at large that people are the priority.”
The office space has been designed with collaboration and comfort in mind. Flexible working spaces have been designed to encourage interaction across various project teams with sit-stand desks, stand up meeting spaces, interactive touch screens and access to roof gardens while new meetings rooms, casual meeting spaces allow the team to have
an array of facilities when working. Each area includes a considered acoustic design to reduce distractions and create a comfortable working environment.
To ensure optimum working conditions the air quality is continuously monitored via an indoor air sensor which also allows staff to view readings on Co2, humidity, temperature and VOC’s in real-time. In conjunction with this a lighting system designed in line with the body’s circadian rhythm improves the mental and physical health of occupants by reducing light related fatigue.
Niall Gaffney, Chief Executive at IPUT said:
By focusing on the health and wellbeing of people we can create spaces that are more comfortable and productive to work in. Achieving WELL Certified Gold for our new offices reflects the ambition of the business to deliver the highest quality design in our buildings.
The International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) is leading the global movement to transform our buildings and communities in ways that help people thrive. IWBI delivers the cutting-edge WELL Building Standard™, the leading global rating system and the first to be focused exclusively on the ways that buildings, and everything in them, can
improve our comfort, drive better choices, and generally enhance, not compromise, our health and wellness.
