The building enjoys abundant natural light through floor to ceiling windows which take in Elliot Bay city views. Although located behind a major highway (four-lanes of traffic), there is a pedestrian bridge which connects their ground floor reception to the riverfront park on the other side of the highway.

The building is owned and operated by Bayleaf Inc., a real-estate organization. The building is leased at a 70% occupancy rate by a range of tenants, including those in finance, technology and healthcare. The total expected occupancy of the building is 1,000 people.

Bay Towers is mechanically ventilated and currently has MERV 11 filters.

The scope of renovation will also include upgrades to the base building, such as staircases, end-of-trip facilities and the air filtration system. The rooftop will also be converted into a public green space for tenants to use for recreation. Tables, chairs and barbeque facilities will be added, as well as several gardens, including edible plots and lawn areas.

As the building owner, Bayleaf provides HVAC fit-out for tenant spaces, but tenants complete the interior walls and supply the finishes and furniture themselves. While no food is provided by Bayleaf, some individual tenants do have pantries where they provide their own snacks and beverages for their own employees.

Bayleaf manages the building and operates the ground floor which includes the reception, building management office, meeting rooms, as well as the elevator banks on each floor and the rooftop. Meeting rooms are common amenities that are able to be booked by the tenants. Bayleaf has two employees that work at desks onsite, a receptionist at the front desk and a property manager in the building management office.

PROJECT SCOPE & GOALS

Bayleaf has enrolled Bay Towers for WELL Core Certification to attract and retain high-quality tenants and address growing tenant demand for well-being facilities.

As part of the WELL Core Certification scope, Bayleaf intends to renovate their ground floor and are open to leveraging some of this space to include health and well-being programming.

The scope of renovation will also include upgrades to the base building, such as staircases, end-of-trip facilities and the air filtration system. The rooftop will also be converted into a public green space for tenants to use for recreation. Tables, chairs and barbeque facilities will be added, as well as several gardens, including edible plots and lawn areas.

Bayleaf is hoping their WELL Core Certification will provide some initial feature compliance for tenants wishing to also pursue WELL Certification for their spaces.

Question 54

Please click on the Project Scenario A button to review the project scenario and answer the following question.

MILO DESIGN STUDIO - SHENZHEN, CHINA - PROJECT SCENARIO A

MILO is a small, multi-disciplinary design studio with 30 employees located in Shenzhen, China. Their

primary business is interior commercial fit-outs and they also offer sustainability consulting. Three of their employees have achieved their WELL AP credential.

They have recently leased one floor 21,528 ft.a (2 000 m2) in a building owned by another organization to use as their new studio office. This space includes floor to ceiling windows on all four exterior walls. While the windows are numerous, they are also highly tinted, with a visible light transmittance of approximately 0.35 (35%). They intend on installing several living plant walls and have included natural fibers and patterns in their finishings throughout.

Their building is located 984.25 ft. (300 m) from an underground train station and across the road (approx. 328.08 ft. (100 m)) from a large public park. While many employees have indicated that they bike to work on bike trails, the new building's landlord will not allow tenants to use the elevators to bring bicycles to their offices. Instead, their building has bike racks at the building entrance, an underground garage for bike storage, small rentable lockers and basic bike maintenance tools.

MILO considers itself a human-centric design firm and leads with a people-first approach through its

employee benefits and organizational policies. As an example, they offer a 50% discount on several

mindfulness apps and make guided meditation courses available twice per year to all employees on-site.

PROJECT SCOPE & GOALS

MILO has enrolled their office for WELL Certification to demonstrate their commitment to designing for well-being and employee health. They will be renovating and designing the entire fit-out themselves, including new space configurations that will prioritize natural light.

The space layout will include seating for 45 people in an open-plan office with hot-desking, three conference rooms and four individual phone booths. Additionally, they are planning to update lighting fixtures and purchase new office furniture. MILO do not provide any food or beverages on a daily basis except coffee and tea.

MILO is targeting WELL Certification at the Gold level or higher. This effort is being led by one of their inhouse WELL APs.
