Angel Central is officially Fitwel
29 March, 2021
Angel Central is one of only three shopping centres in the world to have achieved international prestigious health and wellbeing award
Fitwel, the world’s leading certification system for building health for all, has awarded CBRE Global Investors the Fitwel for Workplace: Retail Building v2.1 2-star rating for Angel Central, Islington – only the third shopping centre in the world to have achieved this status.
The award recognises Angel Central’s commitment to building health for all. The rigorous accreditation process included Fitwel reviewing how the centre provides a space committed to building health for all.
Accessibility, daylight, fresh air, green space and walking/ cycling access are key to creating a Fitwel accredited place, all significant features of the £16m redevelopment to be unveiled shortly.
A spokesperson for Fitwel said: “We would like to congratulate CBRE Global Investors, on behalf of the Centre for Active Design, on their success in designing a project to promote occupant health and well-being.
“We are extremely proud to recognise the ground-breaking efforts of CBRE Global Investors by awarding a Fitwel 2 Star Rating to the Angel Central project. This project incorporates a number of evidence-based design and operational strategies that support the physical, mental, and social health of occupants.”
Ciara Daffy, Asset Manager for CBRE Global Investors added: “We are thrilled to have this recognition from the leading body in their field. From the start of the development works we have focused on creating a great and healthy destination for people to enjoy.
As we reach the completion of the works and, look forward to welcoming back customers and a number of our retailers after lockdown, this Fitwel award is a fantastic boost for everyone after an incredibly challenging year.
I would like to thank everyone across all the teams involved who have worked tirelessly to see our vision for Angel Central come to fruition.”
