What the HEALTH is Happening?: Applying the WELL, Fitwel & RESET Building Standards

Over the last two decades, forward-thinking design, construction and operations practices have transformed the commercial real estate industry across the globe. Yet strategies to enhance human health and wellbeing have played a relatively small role in the evolution of the built environment. As the industry looks to what’s next, firms are elevating human health and comfort to the forefront of commercial real estate while reinventing buildings that are not only better for the planet, but also for the people that inhabit them.

As the ‘wellness in the workplace’ movement gains traction, several leading frameworks have emerged which help codify strategies & metrics that have come to define a healthy workplace. Three of these frameworks include WELL, Fitwel and RESET.

Come join our diverse group of experts for an interactive discussion exploring leading wellness frameworks and how they may be applied to both individual projects as well as real estate portfolios. We’ll assess the strengths of each framework while reviewing real-world applications, citing examples of projects which have pursued Certification under multiple wellness frameworks.

Participants will have a unique opportunity to participate in an interactive discussion with senior leaders from the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), Center for Active Design (Fitwel) and GIGA (RESET) – enabling you to evaluate which frameworks are right for your buildings.

Women of CoreNet September Program // Wednesday, September 26 // Redwood City

We Built a School: The Story of Design Tech High School

Seventeen years ago, Oracle Executive Chairman and CIO, Larry Ellison, dreamed of having a school at Oracle where students could learn not what to think, but how to think. In 2018, that vision became a reality when Oracle completed construction of a new home for Design Tech High School (d.tech) on its headquarters campus.

Design Tech High School (d.tech) is a pioneering California public charter high school. d.tech’s mission is to develop students who believe the world can be a better place, and that they can be the ones to make it happen. The d.tech model is guided by two powerful principles—extreme personalization and putting knowledge into action. d.tech students learn to solve real-world problems using a design thinking approach that they can use throughout their lives to make positive contributions to a constantly changing world.

Oracle’s relationship with d.tech began in 2014 through the Oracle Education Foundation, and quickly grew and deepened into the company and d.tech co-designing a purpose-built facility for the school, which was completed in November 2017 and has been occupied by d.tech since January 2018. Hear from the team responsible for the joint project to design and build d.tech – leaders who were all, unintentionally, women. Learn how the team took “See It, Be It” from vision to execution, along with lessons learned.
