PATHWAYS TO WELL: OFFICE TOUR SERIES

WELL Certification is a performance standard that supports and advances human health and wellness in the built environment. Urban Green is excited to introduce a series focusing on the unique ways of complying with WELL in office spaces.

The series begins with a tour of the JLL offices on June 15, where we will focus on the innovative use of lighting. The second tour on June 22 will highlight the office of COOKFOX Architects (pictured above), where nature was skillfully integrated as a visual (and edible) element. Finally, on June 29, join the architects, project managers and contractors from these projects for a panel discussion of their paths to WELL Certification.
