UL Verified Healthy Buildings
Did you know that Watt Plaza is officially a UL Verified Healthy Building for Indoor Air and Water? As part of our commitment to the health and wellness of our occupants, we recently underwent an extensive verification process to earn the UL Verified Healthy Building for Indoor Air and Water Mark. One of the most respected names in safety, security and sustainability for buildings, UL’s program demonstrates that our buildings have excellent indoor air quality as well as water quality for both human consumption and prevention of waterborne pathogens.
To achieve the UL Verified Healthy Building for Indoor Air and Water Mark, we participated in an audit in addition to undergoing on-site visits, which included visual inspections and performance testing. To maintain our verification, surveillance will continue twice a year to ensure we continue to have indoor air and water quality performance.
Testing methods used to verify both indoor air and water quality are aligned with industry-recognized, third-party organizations, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the World Health Organization (WHO), the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to name a few. Where lab sampling is necessary, testing methodologies are informed by the EPA Compendium of Methods, ASTM D5197 and TO-17 for air sampling and EPA methods for water. We are proud of having achieved this milestone toward supporting healthier indoor environments.
