In 2013, CBRE’s Global Corporate Headquarters in Los Angeles became the first commercial office in the world to achieve WELL Certification for a commercial office space through the WELL Building Standard™ (WELL) pilot program. The workspace integrated key features to improve the health and well-being of their employees, both to drive inspiration as well as to enhance productivity and focus. These features focus on optimal indoor air quality, circadian lighting, active design, biophilia, drinking water access, and healthy food access.

The project incorporates CBRE’s “Workplace360” concept, a global workplace strategy initiative that features a balance of private and collaborative workspaces designed to support the way employees work through enhanced flexibility, mobility, technology, productivity and wellness. As part of their WELL Certification, the CBRE Headquarters offers employees healthy and organic fruits and vegetables, 100% sit stand desks, and incorporates over 1,000 plants throughout the office design.
