As a Cornerstone member, GARDINER will work with clients across the region to leverage the evidence-based strategies of the world's leading health-focused building standard – the WELL Building Standard (WELL) – to support and enhance the well-being of the people within local facilities of all types.
"Clients have looked to GARDINER for decades for help in dealing with challenges in local buildings like hospitals, K-12 schools, universities, municipal facilities and office buildings," said Todd Barnhart, President of GARDINER. "In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone designing, constructing or operating a building is looking for ways to measurably improve their building's ability to best support the health and wellness of the people in it."
WELL is focused on the ways that buildings can improve comfort and generally enhance, rather than compromise, health and wellness. Delivered by IWBI, WELL is a performance-based rating system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of our buildings that impact human health and wellness, through Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind and Community.

"Joining IWBI is another way that GARDINER can help lead the industry in Northern Ohio," said Barnhart. "By committing to WELL, we can help local buildings take advantage of research-driven, evidence-based strategies in a practical way that demonstrates real-world results and helps our clients keep their employees, customers, students or patients as safe and healthy as possible. We're proud to be part of it."
As part of the program, GARDINER's staff of 225 local associates, including over two dozen degreed engineers, will be trained on the program's concepts and standards using the extensive IWBI educational resources, including the WELL AP (Accredited Professional) program.
"Since the first WELL projects, we have continued to build the momentum towards a global transformation that puts people at the focus of a healthier future," said IWBI Chairman and CEO Rick Fedrizzi. "The IWBI membership community is passionate and united around their efforts to elevate wellness in their everyday work, and we are excited to have each of them on this journey."
