TD receives world’s first v1 WELL Building Certification

Congratulations to our client – TD Bank Group – on achieving the WORLD’S FIRST WELL™ Gold certification for their TD23 project of the WELL Building Standard. This ground-breaking achievement is a new milestone in the development, growth and expansion of the WELL™ Certification program.

HH Angus is proud to have participated in the first project to be certified WELL Gold by the International WELL™ Building Institute (IWBI) through version 1 of its WELL Building Standard (WELL). We congratulate TD Bank Group for the success of their pilot project – the 23rd Floor of Tower One at the Toronto Dominion Centre. The project provided us with an excellent understanding of the WELL™ certification process.

The WELL™ Building Standard is the first of its kind to focus on the health and wellness of building occupants. It identifies performance metrics, design strategies and policies that can be implemented by owners, designers, engineers, contractors, users and operators of buildings. We believe that the Standard has the potential to be widely embraced and adopted in conjunction with current LEED practice, so we’re very pleased to be involved with WELL™ in its early stages.

HH Angus’ Commercial Division has worked with TD Bank Group on portfolio optimization for several years. This work has been geared to implementing a broad infrastructure renewal. The Optimization project also represented Canada’s first Integrated Project Delivery contract for a commercial interior, and was the first TD corporate interior to obtain LEED Platinum Certification.

At HH Angus, we believe that the WELL™ Building Standard has the potential to one day be widely embraced and adopted in conjunction with current LEED practice, so we’re very pleased to be involved in the early stages of this standard, and to be able to support a valued client in this effort.
