Our next Urbano speaker event on Thursday September 20th looks at the WELL Building Standard and will principally appeal to those companies in the Build Community, but should appeal to those in the Urbano People Community (HR, employment, wellbeing).

Our guest speaker is Ann Marie Aguilar, Director of Operations (Europe) for the International WELL Building Standard (IWBI). IWBI is the first evidence-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring buildings and their affect on health and wellbeing. 

After Ann's talk about the work of the IWBI and its standards, we will visit the nearby One Carter Lane, the first project in the UK and Europe to achieve WELL Certification at the Gold level, BREEAM Excellent and SKA Gold ratings and demonstrating that health, wellbeing and sustainability are compatible. The tour will be led by Kavita Kumari, Senior Environmental Engineer at Cundall, and a WELL Accredited Professional.
