WELL Project Description

As WELL APs and LEED Consultants, we fundamentally believe in practicing what we preach, which is one of the reasons we invested in WELL certification for our new HQ in Masdar City.

As a commitment to the on-going health and well-being of our Alpin team members, we upgraded our operating policies and invested in the WELL certification of our headquarters. WELL complements our current LEED Gold Certification and Alpin Healthy HR campaign

Sustainable and Healthful design of the project helps to provide comfortable working conditions for our employees.

Alpin Limited's HQ is located in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi, an urban development area which is focused on green buildings and energy. As are we are a boutique consultancy with some of the most experienced thought-leaders in the region, the project team placed a high premium on Fitness, Mind and Nourishment. This will be our home for the foreseeable future, so we believe in investing in us.

The project fit-out incorporated ergonomic office designs to promote the health and comfort of our team members. A direct view to greenery planted in the outside courtyard through a well shaded and insulated glazed façade allow the occupants a glare-free and comfortable atmosphere. Furthermore, the glazed façade provide sufficient daylight which results in very minimal need for internal lighting during normal working hours. At the street-level, an easily accessible, vegetated, and shaded outdoor space helps enrich the entire block, creating a refreshing impression. Spacious and easily accessible vehicle parking is located at the perimeter of the block with a staircase, with access to a lift.

To further promote the comfort of building occupants, especially during very hot summers, the Alpin office has an energy efficient, high-filtration HEPA UV ventilation filters that provides comfortable temperature and a high-level of indoor air quality. This is in addition to our reverse osmosis water filtration system. Moreover, the incorporation of dust-free writing walls allows for improving air quality, as well as providing clear and easy-to-read comments and notices for the occupants. In addition, the selection of furniture took in consideration the materials needed to avoid harmful emissions and provide comfortable seating positions.

All of our air quality metrics (CO2, VOCs, PM10, etc. are measured in real-time and broadcast both internally and externally on our website.

Green design of the project and its context provide comfortable working conditions for the employees of our consultancy firm. All Alpin staff are provided with organic fresh fruits and veggies, ergonomic workstations and with EnergyStar rated office electrical equipment, allowing for high comfort and efficiency at work.
