HSBC Place Earns Gold WELL Core Certification

January 19, 2022

DIALOG is excited to share that HSBC Place has achieved WELL Core Certification at the Gold Level under WELL v1.

HSBC Place has set a new benchmark for commercial office space in Edmonton. The building promotes health and well-being of the tenants along with sustainable building systems that are good for the environment too.

WELL focuses on 7 well-being concepts: Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Fitness, Comfort, and Mind to put tenant health, happiness, and well-being as a top priority in how the building is designed and operated.

HSBC Place was redesigned from the inside out to be a prominent, distinctive AA class office tower in Downtown Edmonton. It was stripped down to its structure to have new building systems integrated with a high-performance envelope, and the podium and streetscape were transformed to better engage with the lively downtown corner. Sixteen storeys of commercial office space sit atop a refreshed and inviting 2-storey podium. In addition to achieving WELL Core Gold under WELL v1, the building has achieved BOMA BEST Platinum and is certified WIRESCORE Platinum – the first in Edmonton. HSBC Place is targeting LEED® Gold v4.

Congratulations to the entire team of collaborators that helped to realize this significant achievement.
