Spaces at The Spine celebrates WELL Platinum status

We’re proud to announce that Spaces at The Spine is WELL Certified at the Platinum level through the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), and has become the only venue in Liverpool to hold the prestigious title.

Created by the IWBI to monitor features of buildings that impact human health and wellbeing, the WELL Building Standard measures 10 concepts including air, water, nourishment, light, movement, thermal comfort, sound, materials, mind and community. 

The Spine, our home and the northern base for the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), is one of the healthiest buildings in the UK due to following the principles that make up the WELL Building Standard. Now, our venue has been awarded the highest rating possible due to the range of features that promote wellbeing, including:

  • An abundance of oxygen-producing plant installations 
  • The installation of natural materials, such as timber, with all wood used throughout the building being sustainable hardwood
  • LED lighting that saves 50% of energy costs compared to traditional lighting
  • Daylight optimisation to regulate temperature and lighting
  • The Base, our adjoining wellness cafe, which centres around healthy and vegan/plant-based food


Natacha Allen, Spaces at The Spine’s Head of Commercial Events, said: 

We are delighted to receive this prestigious accreditation for Spaces at The Spine, our commercial events venue located on the top three floors of The Spine building. Wellbeing and sustainability are at the core of our offer, and we believe it’s important to offer delegates a unique experience that positively impacts their health. The WELL Building Standard’s principles have been incorporated in each aspect of our venue to achieve this result, and we couldn’t be prouder of this achievement.”


Robert Hopkins, Head of Sustainability at AHR Architects, said:

“RCP were real pioneers in adopting the WELL Standard as the perfect way of expressing the core values of the organisation. Our shared vision was to shape more than just a building, but an experience. A space designed with a philosophy that people will feel healthier when they walk out of the building than when they arrived. This accomplishment underscores not only our design principles but our commitment to enhancing Liverpool’s workplace offering with a hub of wellbeing and innovation.”


Giuliano Camerini, Senior Sustainability and Health and Wellbeing Consultant, ESG Consultancy at CBRE UK, said: 

“The health and wellbeing journey of RCP is visible to all working at and visiting the building and it is a clear pathway of the office of the future, with the occupant and the environment at the centre of the design. Thanks to the multidisciplinary nature of the project team and the cross-team collaboration, the building now offers a dynamic office and events environment helping occupants to thrive when in the building.”
