IWBI’s WELL Building Standard encourages building design and management that improves human health and wellness. The certification is based on seven categories: air, water, light, nourishment, fitness, comfort, and mind.

In 2017, IWBI partnered with Prologis to launch its Warehouse Pilot Program, an effort that focuses on the health and well-being of employees working in distribution centers and logistics facilities. Prologis designed its Park Tacoma building in line with the pilot program standards.

“The WELL certification of Prologis’ Park Tacoma demonstrates our industry-leading commitment to providing our customers best-in-class buildings,” said Grant Stevens, Prologis’ managing director of Global Construction and Development Services. “As the global leader in logistics real estate, Prologis will continue to combine forward-thinking design and ambitious environmental stewardship, with our commitment to social responsibility, creating value for our customers and shareholders.”

Prologis is a logistics real estate company with ownership or investment in more than 700 million square feet of development projects in 19 countries.
