The impact of the office building on well-being and health

WTC Schiphol Airport has been awarded the WELL Gold certificate, which is something we are proud of. With the WELL Gold certification, WTC Schiphol Airport officially is a healthy building, where people are more productive, happier, and are able to focus on their daily work and well-being with maximum comfort and enjoyment. The WELL Building Standard sets seven high quality standards that have a scientifically proven positive effect on people’s well-being and health.

A WELL-certified office building excels in:


Air quality

At WTC Schiphol Airport, great importance is given to ensuring good air quality, which is essential for your well-being and productivity. The presence of people in a building and daily activities such as breathing and textile wear often contribute to indoor air pollution. We filter this as much as possible to keep it clean, minimizing respiratory problems, headaches and other complaints.


Natural light

In the building, we provide sufficient daylight. Daylight is essential for the proper functioning of our biorhythms. Our circadian rhythm determines, among other things, when we sleep and eat, as well as our body temperature, learning performance, and mood. By ensuring the presence of daylight, we prevent health issues, sleep disorders, stress, concentration problems, and sadness.


Climate and acoustic comfort

It is difficult to focus when the environment is too cold, too warm, or too noisy. That is why we pay a lot of attention to creating a healthy climate and comfortable acoustics at WTC Schiphol Airport. With a pleasant temperature and sound environment in the building, you can feel most productive, and we can prevent irritability and stress.


Water quality

80% to 90% of our brain consists of water. Therefore, it is important to drink enough water throughout the day. High-quality drinking water is essential for this. Evides is the water company that supplies water to WTC Schiphol Airport. The tap water at Schiphol is of the highest quality and is checked daily by the drinking water company.


Healthy nutrition

Healthy nutrition has a positive effect on your immune system, leading to a reduction in sick leave. Additionally, work performance is significantly improved with a balanced diet. At WTC Schiphol Airport, you’ll find a variety of options for healthy meals or snacks. Check out STACH or visit Schiphol Plaza here.
