International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) Re-certification

1 July 2021 

The Frasers Property Rhodes HQ office in Australia has been awarded a WELL recertification at a Platinum level by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI). This recognition from a global certification body supports Frasers' commitment and leadership to managing the health and wellbeing of occupants within their office. 

 

Notably, this is the first WELL recertification in Australia.

 

Since our original certification in 2017, Frasers has:

  • Upgraded our certification from Gold to Platinum (the highest-level achievement)

  • Upgraded our rating tool version from v1 to v2 pilot

 

The WELL Building Standard is a performance-based certification system that marries best practices in design and construction with evidence-based scientific research. It is based on ten categories of building performance — Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind and Community.

 

Key achievements as part of this rating:

  • The Business Continuity Plan, which established a re-entry plan and offered supportive resources to facilitate resilience during, and recovery after, an emergency.

  • Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), which outlines how we build collaborative relationships, create opportunities for meaningful outcomes with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and builds respect for their long and continuous cultures.

  • Domestic Violence Policy, which supports victims of domestic violence and educates employees on the domestic violence resources available.

  • Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy, which promotes mental health through policy and program strategies that address the diverse factors that influence cognitive and emotional well-being.

  • Flexible working policy ("All roles Flex"), which encourages a healthy work-life balance and supports flexible work arrangements

 

Office design features as part of this rating:

  • A lighting design to provide occupants with appropriate light exposure to align with our natural circadian rhythm.
  • End of Trip facilities (showers, changerooms and lockers) to support active commuters and occupants.
  • MERV 13 air filters which target small particles in the air through both indoor and outdoor sources of pollution.

 

Frasers Property would like to thank and congratulate everyone who was involved for their contribution.
