Sydney's Barrack Place building at 151 Clarence Street has been awarded Australia’s first ever WELL Core & Shell Precertification at the Gold level by the International WELL Building Institute.

Barrack Place is currently being leased by Investa and Savills.

Barrack Place won the Precertification involved upgrading the building systems and improving the design.

Shen Chiu, Senior Development Manager at Investa said while individual tenancies within buildings have achieved WELL Certification in Australia, they are leading the way with the first WELL Core & Shell Precertification in a new development.

“New buildings provide a unique opportunity to deliver a healthy place to work from the ground up," he said.

"The WELL Building Standard allows us to go one step further, by incorporating the science of wellness into The Fabric of the building and locking in these benefits for decades to come." 

"Achieving this will allow tenants at Barrack Place to leverage certain aspects of the building’s design and services when doing their own space planning and our team will continue to manage the implementation to ensure it is carried through to WELL Certification.” 

Investa began work towards the pre-certification with IWBI over a year ago to find out how WELL Core & Shell Certification could be adapted to the Australian office environment for the entire base building design at Barrack Place.

WELL is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and wellness through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.
