An office building in Slough is in line to the one of the healthiest buildings in the UK as it seeks to achieve Well Building Status.

The 120,000ft² Porter Building, designed by architects TP Bennett and being constructed by Bowmer & Kirkland, is expected to be completed by the end of September this year.

Since other developments seeking such a status will not be finished by then, those behind the project expect it to be the first to achieve it.

The Well Building Standard is an international performance-based assessment methodology grounded in medical research exclusively focused on human health and well-being in the built environment.

The joint developers are Landid and Brockton Capital.

David Blair, TP Bennett director, said: “Working with the client Landid/Brockton, our aim was to embed the wellness concept into the base build.

“As a project pursuing Well certification, The Porter Building should help set the standard for future developments and ensure well-being is on the agenda from the outset of development.”
