Vesteda aims at healthy living with WELL Building Standard

Residential real estate investor Vesteda has registered for a Well Building Standard certification with its apartment building ‘Aan de Rijn’ in Arnhem. Vesteda is the first in the Netherlands to enrol for Well Building Standard certificate for a residential building.

The Well Building Standard (WELL) is the new health and wellbeing standard for buildings. WELL certification is aimed at improving the impact of a building on the health, comfort and wellbeing of its users.

Gertjan van der Baan, CEO Vesteda: "As Vesteda we want to play a leading role in sustainable living. Until now, our sector has focused on green and energy efficient buildings. Comfort and health have only received limited attention up until this point. We would like to prioritise the health and comfort of our tenants. The WELL Building Standard provides the perfect way to measure this ambition and therefore this registration is an important first step for us."
