First Hong Kong residential project achieving Core V.2 standards, the world’s first architectural benchmark focusing exclusively on health and wellness
HONG KONG, March 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — 133 Portofino, the latest exquisite residential project in Sai Kung by Sino Group, has been awarded WELL Core V.2 Pre-certification, and will be listed as one of the ‘WELL Projects’ of the WELL Building Standard®, becoming the first Hong Kong residential project accredited by Core V. 2 of the coveted assessment system.
Administered by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), the WELL Building Standard® is the world’s first architectural benchmark focusing exclusively on human health and wellness to improve sustainability. It measures and monitors features within ten key concepts of the built environment that impact human health and well-being, namely air, water, nourishment, light, movement, thermal comfort, sound, materials, mind and community.
Core V.2 represents a leap from the pioneering foundation of Core V.1, covering additional features that are crucial to health and well-being. To be awarded the pre-certification, 133 Portofino has undergone rigorous assessments conducted by Green Business Certification Inc., a third-party certification body for WELL, to ensure that it meets all performance requirements in addition to management commitment to upholding practices on education, such as instituting an education corner sharing information on well-being and conducting health sharing programmes in residents’ clubhouse. The project could be awarded WELL Core Certification following a final evaluation.
‘As we spend more than 90 per cent of our time indoors, the built environment has a profound impact on our health, well-being and productivity. The WELL Building Standard® codifies best practices, linking sustainability with architectural design by creating spaces and buildings to protect our health and well-being. I would like to thank and congratulate the team for the prestigious recognition as we work towards our mission of "creating better lifecapes" for our people, customers and the broader community,’ remarks Mr Daryl Ng, Deputy Chairman of Sino Group.
