WHY DOES A FITWEL CERTIFICATION
OF YOUR OFFICE SPACE MATTER?
OF employees want to work in-office the majority of the week
of workers want to work from home full-time
say collaborating with others is harder at home

Fitwel is a system developed by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the General Services Administration (GSA) that evaluates the health-affecting aspects of the building environment to improve occupant well-being.
Fitwel Certification is based on a strong foundation of data and evidence from scientific publications and documented best practices, along with input and guidance from experts from the fields of design and public health. You can rest assured knowing your office space is incorporating best practices and most up to date measures to ensure occupant safety and trust.
Fitwel has also announced their Fitwel Viral Module in 2020 setting industry best practices for mitigating viral transmission and is applicable across all commercial and residential building types. Following a multi-stepped process we evaluate existing mechanical, ventilation and filtration systems combined with indoor air quality testing. Additionally we help you develop policy and procedures to promote a healthy work environment. The ultimate goal is to get your workspace Fitwel certified. See our stepped process below for more information.
