17 Globalworth’s properties in Poland have obtained the WELL Health-Safety Rating safety certification. This means that those assets now meet high health and safety requirements, providing healthy environment for work and social interaction in the face of post-pandemic challenges.

The WELL Health-Safety Rating is an independently verified assessment for all new and existing buildings.

 “The safety and comfort of tenants who make up the Globalworth community are our main priority. That’s why we decided to certify as many as 17 properties in Poland. These include the Warsaw Trade Tower, Skylight & Lumen and Spektrum Tower office buildings in Warsaw, as well as our mixed-use projects such as Hala Koszyki, Supersam in Katowice or Renoma in Wrocław. Our assets have been recognised as among the safest buildings in the world in terms of sanitation and providing a friendly and healthy work environment. Such peace of mind is extremely important, not only for us and our tenants, but especially in the face of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and similar threats,” – says Maciej Kamiński, Head of Property & Facility Department at Globalworth Poland.

The WELL Health-Safety Rating was developed by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic and other health and safety risks for building users.

The IWBI brought together a group of almost 600 public health experts – including virologists, scientists, government officials and architects – whose task it was to analyse and determine the best health and safety procedures in response to the Covid-19 crisis. After analysing the guidelines of the WHO, the CDC and other leading organisations specialising in public health, a new certification scheme was established – the WELL Health-Safety Rating. WELL HSR certification requires that certain measures are taken to enhance the safety of buildings’ users and to reduce the spread of disease.
