NUS SDE is first in the educational sector worldwide to achieve the IWBI WELL™ Health-Safety Rating

The National University of Singapore (NUS) School of Design and Environment (SDE) becomes the first series of buildings in Singapore, as well as the foremost in the educational sector worldwide to achieve the WELL™ Health-Safety Rating by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI).

Achieving the WELL™ Health-Safety Rating marks an important achievement in NUS’ and SDE’s commitment to the health of its building’s occupants, signifying their efforts to address the safety and hygiene of its workspaces in a post-COVID-19 environment, instilling confidence in occupants and the broader NUS community. The WELL™ Health-Safety seal is given to the SDE4 building, Singapore’s first new-build net-zero energy building and the newly-retrofitted SDE1 building, which are located at the NUS Kent Ridge campus.

The IWBI had launched a public awareness campaign in January 2021 where world-renowned scientists, public health scientists and celebrities were encouraging people to “look for the WELL Health-Safety seal” in a bid to raise confidence in the safety of buildings and shared spaces.
