Kilroy Realty understands the significant role material selection plays in the operation of a sustainable building. Throughout a material’s lifecycle, extraction, processing, transportation, use & disposal, there are many negative health & environmental consequences. Environmentally responsible purchasing can significantly reduce that impact.
We are excited to announce that 350 Mission Street has achieved Fitwel certification, administered by the Center for Active Design. The Fitwel certification system, which rates the extent to which an existing building promotes positive health outcomes for occupants, was created as a joint initiative led by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the General Services Administration (GSA) in addition to experts in public health and design over a five-year process completed in 2015. The features that helped 350 Mission achieve Fitwel certification at the 2 star level include: the Sun Terrace, high Walk Score™, green cleaning programs, availability of healthy food options, comprehensive emergency preparedness programs and access to water.
