Congratulations to our client Vendure Retirement Communities on achieving WELL Precertification for the Waterview development located in Nelson, BC. The Waterview development, located in this quaint little Canadian city, is demonstrating global leadership in building health.⁠

By implementing evidence-based strategies that prioritize the health and well-being of our grandparents, parents, and loved ones, as well as those who work in this space to care for them, Vendure is creating environments that are hospitality oriented, reduce employee stress and burnout, foster employee engagement and retention, and ensure the well-being of residents and families.

Ariva Kelowna

Huge Congratulations to our client @arivakelowna for continuing to move forward with enhanced Health and Wellness development by achieving yet another Pre-Certification for the Ariva Project from the International Well Building Institute.

The WELL Community Standard is designed to impact individuals not just within the walls of their home or workplace, but throughout the public spaces where they spend their days. A WELL COMMUNITY is designed to support health and well-being across all aspects and areas of community life. The vision for a WELL community is inclusive, integrated, and resilient, with a strong community identity fostering high levels of social interaction and engagement. Resources in a WELL community—natural, human and technological—are used effectively, equally, and responsibly to meet the community’s current and future needs and priorities.

This WELL Community Standard Pre-Certification means that the Ariva Community is one of the only of its kind in Canada and continues to be an early adopter of best practices in design and construction with evidence-based medical and scientific research—harnessing buildings and communities as vehicles to support human health and well-being.

Ariva Kelowna has achieved Pre-Certification for the Ariva Project from the International Well Building Institute.
