Created in partnership with the Centre for Disease Control and operated by the Center for Active Design, Fitwel® is a rigorous, third-party healthy building certification system that sets the industry standard for evidence-based strategies to promote health and wellness through the built environment.
We are continuing to put tenants and residents first through our partnership with the Center for Active Design on certification, education and research, and are thrilled for Fitwel to recognize our teams’ achievements in creating a healthy environment. This year, we have received the following recognitions:
- Industry Thought Leadership Award

- 2021 Highest Score: Commercial Site v2.1 (Built) for Southcore Financial Centre, Toronto, Canada

“At QuadReal, our ongoing work with the Center for Active Design is an important part of our commitment to create places that support the health and wellbeing of our tenants and residents. The partnership began with a focus on certifying our office properties through Fitwel and has since extended to encompass education and research. We look forward to broadening our benchmarking efforts to ensure we consistently maintain safer and healthier environments across the entire Canadian portfolio we manage and are developing,” says Sarah Clarke, Senior Vice President, Office, Operational Excellence.
QuadReal received the Industry Leadership award at the 2020 awards and was recognized as the building owner with the greatest number of Fitwel registrations at the 2021 awards. Last year, we also partnered with Fitwel to become one of the first companies to certify their health and wellness policies using the Viral Response module.
