Park Place Residences at PLQ, the Paya Lebar Quarter condo, has the distinction of being linked to the first WELL Building certified development in Singapore.
That is because Paya Lebar Quarter, by Lendlease, has registered for the International WELL Building Institute’s (IWBI) WELL Core and Shell Certification, for its almost one million square feet of Grade-A office space across its three office towers.
Paya Lebar Quarter Condo · About the WELL Programme
The programme uses a performance and evidence-based system that is grounded on scientific and medical research. It provides tenants and investors with measurable benefits to address well-being and health concerns for work spaces.
Administered by a public benefit corporation, IWBI, the WELL Building Standard (WELL) is the world’s first building standard that focuses exclusively on increasing the productivity and well-being of its occupants.
Paya Lebar Quarter Condo · The WELL Programme Applied
Aspects of Paya Lebar Quarter that align with the WELL Building Standard include the estimated 100,000 sq ft of public green spaces that are linked to the Park Connector Network, as well as end-of-trip facilities for the occupants, such as lockers, showers, and bicycle lots that support an active lifestyle.
The office buildings will also incorporate enhanced air filtration that goes above and beyond industry standards. This will optimise the amount of outdoor air supplied into the offices, based on occupancy and outdoor air quality.
Public spaces in Paya Lebar Quarter will be Wifi-enabled, enabling the office occupants to take their work outdoors too.
The offices have incorporated other health and well-being aspects as well. Such as floor-to-ceiling glazing that allow natural daylight in, and wide views of the green public spaces.
Paya Lebar Quarter Condo · WELL and Lendlease’s Vision
“Registration for the WELL Certification aligns with our mission to create a healthier, happier, and ultimately more productive workforce and community here at Paya Lebar Quarter,” commented Mr Richard Paine, Managing Director of Paya Lebar Quarter for Lendlease.
He also said that, “Healthy work places can lead to improved productivity, and reduced absenteeism and staff turnover, and reduced insurance or medical claims.”
“Organisations now look beyond the monetary cost of occupying a building; they are also placing emphasis on the productivity of the workforce in it.”
Lendlease & Delos, pioneer of Wellness Real Estate & founder of the WELL Building Standard, had as far back as in November 2015, announced their tie-up to bring health and wellness innovations to Lendlease’s developments worldwide through adoption of the WELL standard.
Lendlease has already adopted the WELL Core & Shell Certification at Barangaroo South Sydney, Sydney’s largest urban renewal project since the 2000 Olympics.
