Fitwel announces 2022 Best in Building Health Award winners

March 10, 2022
Healthy building certification system Fitwel announced its 2022 Best in Building Health awards, which recognize best-in-class innovations that promote occupant health and wellness through the built environment.

The Center for Active Design (CfAD) recently announced the 2022 winners of the Fitwel Best in Building Health (BiBH) leadership awards, its flagship recognition program that identifies notable people and companies that are enhancing human health via Fitwel, a certification system committed to building health.

Created in partnership with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and operated by CfAD, Fitwel is billed as a rigorous, third-party healthy building certification system that sets an industry standard for evidence-based strategies to promote health and wellness through the built environment.

This year's award winners were recognized based on project submissions in 2021 to the Fitwel portal. Winners will be honored at a virtual event on March 24, featuring keynote speakers from winning companies and focused on the increasing role of health and wellness in real estate investment, design, and operations. See more information about the virtual event here.

The Best in Building Health Awards honor those who meet and exceed Fitwel standards, but also recognize exceptional leadership and progress in the industry. Notably, this year's special recognition awards featured companies that are leading the charge in driving market transformation through their buildings for health and wellness, sustainability, and social equity.
