What Industry Leaders are Saying

Richard Henderson
Head of Corporate Properties, Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo is committed to reducing our carbon footprint while continuing to design, build and operate spaces that add to the well-being of our employees and customers. We envision leveraging Fitwel to engage stakeholders to help drive continuous improvement, as well as raise awareness of the benefits of people-centric design and operations. Fitwel is well suited for this purpose due to its accessible language and ease of applicability over a large and diverse portfolio.

Vincent R. Ciruzzi
Chief Development Officer, Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc

Alexandria is proud to be recognized by Fitwel for our commitment to creating dynamic and collaborative environments that promote the health and efficiency of our tenants and enable them to develop innovative solutions that advance human health. Our leadership and regional teams are very supportive and enthusiastic about utilizing the tool in our campus development and operations to advance our goal of increasing employee health and wellness.

Bon Ku, MD
Director, Health Design Lab, Thomas Jefferson University

COVID-19 thrust public health into the limelight, and increased awareness of how the spaces where we live, work, study, and socialize can impact our health and well-being. In a moment of pandemic crisis, health research became paramount—and the Fitwel Academic Advisory Groups rose to the challenge to craft a science-driven response using the best available data at hand. We are proud to have contributed to the pressing need to mitigate viral transmission in buildings, and we look forward to supporting the Center for Active Design's efforts to further evidence-based design now and into the future.
