Prologis Inc. revealed that its Park Tacoma – Building D is the first-ever logistics facility in the world to be awarded a WELL Certification by the International WELL Building Institute. The distinction was awarded through the IWBI’s WELL Building Standard, an industry benchmark that assesses how building design and management can enhance human health and wellness.
In partnership with Prologis, the IWBI launched its Warehouse Pilot Program in 2017 to create an efficient approach to develop a standard for the health and well-being of people working in logistics facilities and distribution centers. Under the WELL for Warehouse Pilot Program, Prologis designed Park Tacoma –Building D with features to enhance employee health and wellness.
“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’ Park Tacoma Building-D Project was awarded the WELL Certification for its design features supporting human health, well-being and comfort. The building earned the distinction based on seven categories of building performance—air, water, light, nourishment, fitness, comfort and mind.
