Stantec partners with the Center for Active Design to promote health, wellness & productivity in buildings
Stantec, a leader in design of sustainable and resilient environments, has become a Fitwel Champion, further solidifying its commitment to supporting the health of employees and communities. Stantec has committed to achieving Fitwel certification for 3 of its own offices (Boston, Denver, and Toronto), and to initiate a program which will eventually grow to include more offices. Their Boston office achieved Stantec’s first Fitwel certification. Additionally, Stantec will advise building and design colleagues and commercial clients about the Fitwel Certification System.
“We want to send a clear message about our commitment to the health and wellness space through this strategic partnership,” says Lisa Killaby, vice president, and leader for interior design. First, we aim to promote health-centered design principals through designing our own office spaces using the Fitwel system. This has major implications, considering we are an expanding global practice designing everything from buildings to bridges to infrastructure. Second, we want to send a clear message to our staff that we not only care about them, but are also actively engaged around their health and wellbeing as an attractor for top talent. Finally, we see this as a major opportunity to engage our clients’ projects and to help them promote positive health outcomes for they and their constituents moving forward.”
