The architectural firm Hord Caplan Macht (HCM) recently completed the documentation to verify that its Denver office can meet the standards necessary to be certified under Fitwel, a health and wellness program that the Center for Active Design launched in May 2016 and began rolling out to developers and the AEC community last fall.

Working with experts in public health and design, the Center for Active Design spent five years developing and testing its Fitwel scorecard. The General Services Administration piloted that program in 89 of its buildings in New York.
