All is WELL for Cbus Property and Quintessential
AUSTRALIAN FINANCIAL REVIEW

Cbus Property improved 720 Bourke Street, the home of Medibank, by increasing natural air and installing community gardens allowing workers to grow their own food. Oliver Sperlich
The shift towards healthier workplaces is gaining traction with two prominent Victorian projects – in Melbourne and Geelong – gaining endorsements from the US-based WELL Building Standard.
Cbus Property’s Docklands development at 720 Bourke Street is the first existing building in the country to receive a WELL gold certification for its shell and core.
In the state’s second-largest city, Geelong, the new home for WorkSafe being developed by fund manager Quintessential Equity has gained a precertification WELL rating for its core and shell and its interior.
The new standard rates buildings on the extent to which they support the health and wellbeing of their occupants by assessing the impact of air and water quality, nourishment, light, fitness and comfort.
