Fitwel is a building certification program designed to improve the health and wellness of people in built environments. While green building programs address the health of buildings and the environment, Fitwel addresses the health of occupants and residents. When paired together, properties that are green building and Fitwel Certified are able to quantify both the “E” and “S” in ESG.
With nearly 2,500 certified properties across the U.S. and 3,175 projects certified globally, Fitwel offers a pathway to track & demonstrate social responsibility.

Fitwel Certification helps building owners, property managers, developers, architects, designers, and urban planners showcase their commitment to fostering a healthier and more sustainable future.
The program is meant for those who want to create and maintain healthier, more connected and sustainable environments in both new construction and existing buildings, such as offices, residential units, and community spaces.
As a Certified Fitwel Partner, we are happy to support your project from plan review and implementation through documentation and certification!
There is a standard registration fee of $500 per project. Certification Fees depend on the size and type of the project. Reduced pricing is available for “Campion” partners who commit to applying Fitwel at scale across their portfolio. In addition to the fees from Fitwel, SEM has a verification fee that also may vary due to the size & type of project.
Fitwel Certification is valid for three years. After this period, projects must be recertified to maintain their Fitwel status.
Fitwel Certification focuses specifically on health and wellness aspects of buildings (i.e. location, active design strategies & operational items), while other rating systems, such as LEED, ENERGY STAR, and NGBS, encompass the sustainability, energy efficiency, and resource management of the building itself. Fitwel pairs well with green building certifications to create both a healthy & sustainable property.
