Sunflower Seed Wall Panels

The gym box interior contains “sunflower seed” wall panels, a green product made from agricultural
waste. Use of these panels reduces waste and saves trees.

Windows and Foiltech Skylight 

Multiple windows and skylights throughout the facility allow for daytime use without need for artificial lighting.

The WELL lobby has a Foiltech skylight, just like the Water Cube at the Beijing Olympics. It is comprised of a composite foil material that is inflated to give it is mass and strength. The little metal circles are called fritting which is what changes how the light enters the space. In this case, this skylight has a shade/no-shade option which will inflate the pillow to let more light in by moving the frit further apart. To let less light in, the air is let out of the pillow which brings the fritting closer together, creating more shade.

Fans

The WELL has large fans from the Big Ass Fans company and measure 10 feet in diameter. These fans were added during construction. There are 10 big ass fans in the building which replaced 28 normal ceiling fans, for energy savings.

Terrazzo Floor

The unique green chips in the floor is made up of recycled Heineken bottles that were crushed and put into the mix. 

Building Orientation

The WELL facility is oriented in a North-South direction, so the main entrances which contain all of the glass are not exposed to direct sun. This helps with energy management because the building will not have to work as hard to keep it cool in the summer and there was no need for use of special glass to keep the glare down from people being exposed to direct sunlight.

Paint and Carpet

These interior building products were selected with no or low emissions of volatile organic compounds, and during construction the builders kept dust and fume production to a minimum to protect indoor air quality at the time and in the future.

Wood

Seventy percent (70%) of the wood utilized in The WELL is certified as sustainably harvested by the Forest Stewardship Council. This means that the ecological health of the forest from which the trees were taken is protected during wood harvesting. The wood is not from clear-cutting or other destructive forestry practices. A wonderful example of sustainably-sourced wood in The WELL is the exposed slats located beneath the lobby sky light. In all, 25% of the construction materials used to construct The WELL are from recycled materials.

Overall Environmental Footprint 

In terms of overall environmental footprint, the building is projected to use: 

23% less energy than a typical new building
43% less water than a typical new building 
25% recycled content materials used in construction
82% total waste was diverted from going to a landfill 
70% sustainably harvested wood was purchased for construction
