We spend about 85% of our lives in buildings, and it is essential that architects and engineers understand how the built environment affects the health and wellness of its occupants. Our continuous drive for improvement fuels our research into engineered systems and modeling tools that improve indoor air quality, contribute to circadian rhythm, and comfort for improved occupant wellness. We focus on delivering the best value for the building owner and the occupants, which goes beyond maintaining budget and energy efficiency, and focuses on the purpose of the place and contributes to occupant and organizational success.
With over 20 WELL AP certified employees and two Fitwell Ambassadors, CMTA embraces designing for wellness. We designed our own corporate headquarters to achieve WELL Gold and operate Zero Carbon, and in 2020 it became the first WELL Gold Certified, Zero Carbon building in the United States. Western Kentucky University’s Ogden College Hall engineering design achieved the WELL v2 Gold Certification and LEED Gold. More recently, we designed the first WELL certified school building for DC Public Schools at John Lewis Elementary.
