based system measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environ- ment that impact human health and wellbeing. The intent of the WELL Building Standard is to bring together the best practices in design and construction with health and wellness. The standard focuses on six key elements shown to positively impact occupant health and pro- ductivity: air quality, water quality, nourishment, light, fitness, and comfort. Burns Scalo made the choice to pursue WELL cer- tification for The Riviera at 300 Technology Dr., inside the Pittsburgh Technology Center (PTC) in Oakland, to support the health and well- ness initiatives of prospec- tive tenants. Today’s leading corporation and institutions recognize the increased im- portance between employee happiness and productivity and are continuing to de- mand the workplaces they inhabit to incorporate these values. The PTC is a hub for young millennial talent, with accessibility and proximity to the University of Pittsburgh, CMU, Duquesne University, UPMC and other tech compa- nies inside the park. “Our company’s mission is to bring health and well- ness of employees to the top of the list in importance. If your employees are happy and healthy they are more productive and passionate, if they are more productive and passionate they work harder, reduce their absen- teeism, increase retention and encourage recruitment. Payroll is almost every or- ganization’s top expense therefore we need to ensure our employees are as happy and productive as possible.”- JimScalo , president, Burns Scalo Real Estate The Riviera is scouting for an anchor tenant to fill the 6-story, 150,000 s/f, of what will be the healthiest commercial office building in Pittsburgh. Once the building con- struction is complete, IWBI representatives will conduct a series of tests and inspec- tions to ensure it meets the standards for WELL Core & Shell Compliance. n
