BCCI Construction Company Completes First-Ever WELL v1 Certified Project in San Francisco

San Francisco, United States

BCCI Construction Company

The WELL Building Standard emphasizes the importance of air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind within the workplace.


San Francisco, United States, 2017-11-28 -

BCCI Construction Company (BCCI), the Bay Area’s premier commercial contractor, is pleased to announce that the recent build-out of its headquarters is the first-ever WELL v1Certified project in San Francisco. Awarded by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI™), WELL Certification has been bestowed on 31 projects worldwide. BCCI’s headquarters represents the 18th certified project in the United States, the 6th certified project in California and the first in San Francisco.

 

Designed to create an inviting and healthy work environment, BCCI’s innovative space supports project collaboration and organic interaction while also creating quiet spaces for focused work. By following the WELL Building Standard, which emphasizes the importance of air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind within the workplace, BCCI’s integrated design and construction team came up with a multitude of creative ways to reflect its company culture and passion for building while addressing WELL’s vital concepts.

 

“We are thrilled that BCCI has achieved WELL Certification for its San Francisco headquarters in an effort to improve the health and well-being of its employees,” said Rick Fedrizzi, chairman and CEO of IWBI™. “With each new WELL Certified building, we further our goal of showing the world how we can push building projects to new heights of sustainability.”

 

Inside the San Francisco headquarters, materials and furnishings with low-emitting volatile organic compounds were chosen to ensure healthy air for employees to breathe. Office walls and ceilings were removed to create an open environment with greater ceiling heights that introduce more light and connect workers to the natural environment. Sit-stand desks, ergonomic chairs and carpeting on the floor help create a comfortable work environment. The office also features private focus rooms, phone rooms, a wellness room, a lounge area and a patio to promote mental and emotional well-being.

 

“Innovative workplace design coupled with ‘tailored fun’ was the guiding focus behind the renovation,” says BCCI President and CEO Michael Scribner. “We approached the design with an eye toward creating a beautiful showcase for clients and a workspace for our team that they could be proud of walking into every day.”

 

Furthermore, to ensure that employee well-being was of utmost importance, BCCI integrated on demand filtered water stations in the kitchen to encourage employees to drink more water. Local organic fruits and vegetables are provided twice weekly to ensure nutritious foods are regularly available. In addition, the company’s wellness program further promotes a healthy lifestyle with employees incentivized to use public transit through BCCI’s commuter benefits program, or to bicycle to work and use the bicycle rack at the building entrance.
