Fitwel Certification

The Fitwel process includes 55+ evidence-based design and operational strategies that enhance buildings by addressing a broad range of health behaviors and risks. Each strategy is associated with unique point allocations, based on the strength of associated evidence and the demonstrated impact on occupant health. This means that strategies with stronger, multi-faceted impacts receive more points.

Fitwel addresses health as an interconnected system, with no single dominant category or area of focus, and as such all strategies are voluntary, with no individual prerequisites.

 

focus on health and wellbeing

Created in a joint initiative by Mayor Bloomberg along with several United States Agencies including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the General Services Administration (GSA), the Fitwel program works to instate a series of metrics focusing on designing, constructing, and operating healthier buildings for healthier tenants and communities.
