Lendlease first in Singapore to achieve three coveted WELL Certifications for its commercial office towers at PLQ
On 24 August 2022, Lendlease announced that it has been awarded the International WELL Building Institute’s (IWBI) WELL Core & Shell Certification at Gold level for nearly one million square feet of Grade A workspaces across its three office towers at its mixed-use development, Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ), in a first for commercial office development in Singapore.
PLQ as the first group of projects in Singapore to register for WELL Certification in 2017 has incorporated many key sustainability features into the development and was designed with access to nature in mind, which include 100,000 square feet of green public spaces, native plants, and natural materials. In addition, the development incorporates superior indoor air quality through top-of-line filtration systems; use of low or zero VOC materials; access to outdoor views and daylighting for office tenants; easy access to healthy amenities such as exercise areas and facilities; and a wide array of healthy food options.
The three office towers - PLQ 1, 2 and 3 - are characterised by large, efficient floor plates to meet the regional needs of global organisations seeking to establish progressive workplaces to attract and retain talent.
Lendlease is the world’s first commercial owner to earn a WELL portfolio score for its office portfolio from IWBI. Lendlease’s International Towers Sydney in Australia was the first to be awarded WELL Core & Shell Certification at the Platinum level, the highest certification available from IWBI.
Csuites is a state-of-the-art flexible enterprise workplace located in PLQ 3, developed by Lendlease. With its cutting-edge amenities and sustainable features, Csuites offers an exceptional working environment that promotes productivity and supports the overall well-being of its tenants.
