APAC’s 1st WELL v1 Certification
GTB’s Shanghai office has a lot to celebrate. Not only did it win the 2016 AIA Hong Kong Merit Award for Interior Architecture, the office also became one of the first five spaces to achieve WELL v1 certification in the world.
WELL is the wellness equivalent to LEED’s system of guidelines and standards for sustainability. It provides a framework for instilling ‘human sustainability’ in buildings and interiors for better morale, health and productivity.
A part of the WPP group, the GTB agency offers major international clients an integrated source of best-of-breed data, advertising, technology and creative capabilities with speed, diversity and potential of modern communications from a single source. The Shanghai office’s wellness elements answer GTB’s need to support its creative, fast-moving culture.
Studies and surveys have consistently shown that people who work in offices that actively support their well-being tend to be happier, more creative and more productive than their equivalents in other workplaces.
