6 ways Arthaland developments safeguard your health and well-being

July 14, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many of us spending much more time indoors during the past year. This has forced us to take a second look at where we live and work and reassess how we can make it a safe haven. The pandemic also highlighted the need for a more healthy and active lifestyle to boost our immunity.

The residents and tenants of one of the country’s leading green and sustainable property developers, Arthaland, have fewer things to worry about in that regard as they live and work in a place equipped with state-of-the-art wellness solutions. These solutions satisfy both the occupants’ physical and mental well-being and result in enhanced immune systems, higher productivity levels, and an overall improvement in their mood.

So how does Arthaland do it? Below are the top 6 ways Arthaland developments safeguard your health and well-being:

Improved indoor air quality – Each development is equipped with a highly efficient air filtration system that cycles in fresh outdoor air and effectively keeps the circulation clean and free from infectious pathogens.

Exposure to natural light – Carefully planned features will allow abundant light to penetrate inside the homes and offices while preventing indoor heat gain. Sunlight triggers the skin’s production of Vitamin D, prevents the growth of fungi, and enhances one’s mood and productivity.

Green and open spaces – The abundance of green and open spaces in Arthaland developments promote physical activity. It has also been shown to improve air quality and effectively limit the impact of heat waves by reducing urban temperatures.

Potager Garden – Unique to Arthaland developments is a Potager Garden that provides residents access to healthy and nutritious food. Essentially a kitchen garden, these are spaces where edible plants are grown, nurtured, and harvested for serving at the table. Not only relaxing and aesthetically pleasing to look at, Arthaland’s Potager Gardens also foster a stronger sense of community by deepening people’s connection with food and nature.

Contactless technologies – The adoption of contactless features in high-touch surfaces, such as elevators and plumbing fixtures, helps reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses through surface contact. In addition, virtual concierges will be operational in office developments to lessen human exposure while still maintaining the warmth of personal interactions. In the case of Savya Financial Center, semi-autonomous surveillance robots will be operated to ensure safety at any time of the day.

Encouragement of an active lifestyle – Access to essential establishments, jogging paths, bike racks, and even showers in office buildings encourage people to walk and bike instead of taking motorized transport. These features promote fitness through mobility while helping our planet reduce carbon emissions.

Arthaland believes that designing safe and livable spaces is a never-ending process. Therefore, it implements the best practices and principles recommended by the International WELL Building InstituteTM (IWBITM) and strives to achieve WELLTM certifications for all its projects. IWBI uses a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and well-being through the air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind.

To accommodate the growing need to implement best practices in pandemic management, IWBI introduced the Health-Safety RatingTM (HSRTM) in 2020. The HSR is a tool that supplements the WELL Building Standard and further evaluates a building’s mitigation measures for disease transmission based on evidence-based metrics.

Arthaland Century Pacific Tower's operational practices were awarded the HSR seal, which certifies its successful implementation of health-related measures for safe operations. This year as we complete our new office developments, Cebu Exchange and Savya Financial Center, we will strive to receive the same award.

These certifications prove that Arthaland's developments are backed up by the latest scientific research, bolstering a people-first environment that allows its occupants to enjoy good health.
