At our recent Birmingham Services event our speaker Martin Brown covered restorative approaches to developments as part of our #BETHENEWNORMAL theme including initiatives such as Living Building Challenge and WELL Building Standard.
After the talk an invitation from Cundall was extended to us to tour their recently extended and WELL Building Standard Birmingham Office the next morning, an offer we couldn’t possibly refuse no matter how late our event evening would finish!
Birmingham is the second Cundall office that has implemented the WELL Building Standard and Cundall’s findings have shown that providing environments which promote and enhance occupant health and wellbeing is key to a successful development with a focus on the end-user experience.
WELL is the world’s first building standard focused exclusively on human health and wellness. It marries best practices in design and construction with evidence-based medical and scientific research – harnessing the built environment as a vehicle to support human health and wellbeing.
The addition of the fifth floor in the Birmingham office allowed Cundall to provide much needed space for collaborative working. With a timber feature staircase at its heart, connecting the two floors; this, together with extensive biophilic design features and an emphasis on wellness, is the shop front for Cundall’s sustainable ethos across their global business
