Group14 is proud to announce one of its sustainability projects, Catalyst Health-Tech Innovation, has achieved WELL Core & Shell Certification at the Silver Level. The prestigious certification was awarded by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI).
Designed by the Beck Group, the 180,000-square-foot, seven-story core and shell office building includes numerous design elements that promote the health and well-being of its occupants.
To be awarded WELL Core & Shell Certification, Catalyst HTI underwent rigorous testing and evaluations, earning the distinction based on seven categories —Air, Water, Light, Nourishment, Fitness, Comfort and Mind.
Features that helped the project achieve WELL Silver Certification include:
- Light: The facility was designed with large, fixed windows to take advantage of site orientation and capture natural light. Lighting systems were also designed to minimize glare caused by electric light sources.
- Air: The building promotes clean air through a variety of measures. These measures include moisture management, VOC reduction and construction pollution management.
- Water Quality: Safe and clean water was achieved through the implementation of filtration techniques that eliminated contaminants.
- Opportunities for Fitness: The office features a bike shop, ample bicycle storage, a workout area and locker rooms.
Located in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood, Catalyst HTI is a one-of-a-kind, co-working office that brings together health care entities, tech companies, nonprofits and academic organizations under one roof.
