Working WELL In NYC

We did it! This week, our New York office was officially certified as a “WELL building” by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) and Delos, marking our office as the FIRST building in NYC to achieve WELL. Jim Donaghy, Rob Leon and Jennifer Taranto accepted the certification plaque during an IWBI event, sharing the stage with Dr. Deepak Chopra, a Delos advisory board member.

The office is certified at the Silver level, meaning we met 100% of the conditions in the WELL Building Standard’s seven categories of building performance: air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. From the office’s WELL café to the low VOC materials and special HVAC systems, our space is helping enhance employee health and wellbeing through the built environment.

“Targeting WELL certification for our new office was important to us not only for our employees’ health and wellbeing, but also to ensure as construction managers that we understand what it takes to build these kinds of spaces,” says James Donaghy, chairman of the board at Structure Tone. “We have already seen our clients incorporating wellness into their built environments and firmly believe WELL will play a strong role in the workplaces of the future.”

Congratulations to the entire project team, including Gensler, who designed our space, on this fantastic achievement!
