Wellness ‘Healthy Home’ Initiative
The U.S. has experienced rapid growth in the demand for consumer goods and services relating to health and wellness. If you believe in the wellness trend, why wouldn’t you apply it to the largest asset class there is?
A recent World Health Organization (WHO) study that found that 80 to 90% of our health outcomes are intimately tied to where and how we live which is further compounded due to the average American spending more than 21 hours indoors every day—around 90% of the day according to a report by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—with more than half (65%) of that time spent in the home, indicating that the built environment is potentially one of the largest contributors to our health and well-being.
Therefore, just one unique aspect of Urbanist apartments is the incorporation of mechanical, engineering, and plumbing components that complement the most vital elements effecting the overall health of the inhabitant. Notably, Urbanist has partnered with Delos® to offer residents a built-in health and wellness ‘amenity’ within each apartment.
Delos is a global wellness real estate and technology company with a mission to enhance health and well-being in the environments where we live, work, sleep and play. Through years of rigorous laboratory research and collaborations with leading architects, engineers, scientists and health professionals, Delos presents evidence based programs, standards and solutions designed to enhance health, performance, and well-being in the built world.
Urbanist communities are Health & Wellness developments, which is even more relevant for medical students and stuff due to their ‘awareness’ of the requirements for wellness and healthy living options, especially in the “post-COVID” age.
Because of our commitment to our residents health and wellness, all of our developments are well certified and will be recognized with their Health & Safety Seal. More information can be found at www.wellcertified.com.
