THE International Well Building Institute (IWBI) has granted Investa with a WELL Portfolio Achievement Award, due to the group’s recent WELL Health-Safety Rating.
Investa has just received WELL Portfolio Ratings for its Investa Commercial Property Fund (ICPF) and Oxford Investa Property Partnership (OIPP) office portfolio, with both these ratings and the award representative of the group’s focus on the health and wellbeing of its building occupants.
“The WELL Portfolio achievement and award is a significant accomplishment for Investa, and we are delighted to show our commitment to building and occupant health and wellbeing through this globally recognised tool,” said Megan Francis, business project manager of real estate operations at Investa.
Investa received these ratings after meeting IWBI’s standards across its ten concepts, following a the bodies review of the portfolio.
“These achievements represent our commitment to the well-being of those who work and visit our buildings. Creating workplaces that enable people to thrive and be their best is at the heart of our strategy,” said Brendan Looby, fund manager of ICPF.
Both OIPP and ICPF in these reviews achieved the highest global portfolio scores for the IWBI concepts of Movement and Community.
“Key to our purpose is to maximise the value of workplaces for our tenants, investors and broader community – being globally recognised as a leader in WELL standards across the OIPP portfolio is an achievement to be proud of,” said Nicole Quagliata, fund manager of OIPP.
With OIPP and ICPF now respectively ranking second and third across the globe in WELL portfolio-wise accreditation.
“We’ve seen an increase in tenant demand for WELL certifications and we’re proud to continue to offer this to our occupants for both new and existing assets,” added Francis.
The WELL Portfolio system enables companies and organisations to measure and improve their health and well-being across an entire real estate portfolio.
“IWBI has experienced exponential growth over the past year, with organizations and industry leaders adopting WELL strategies to demonstrate a commitment to people-first places and an increasing prioritization of well-being,” said Rachel Hodgdon, president of IWBI.
“Through continuous advocacy, engagement and leadership, these award recipients have played an influential role in this growth globally and within their local communities.”
