9 key aspects of the work environment that effect employees

banner

SOMERSET SQUARE was the first privately owned LEED building in Saint John. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy, and Environmental Design. It is a gold rated building adding tremendous value to the North End of Saint John. According to Efficiency NB “It meant reclaiming a plot of land that had been contaminated by years of commercial use to put up a showcase building that has been a very positive addition to a neighbourhood that has seen little development in recent years.” Source: www.efficencynb.com

World Green Building Council has done in-depth research on the benefits of LEED buildings that motivate employees and increase efficiency. According to the REPORT, key factors that affect the work environment include:

  1. Air Quality
  2. Heating & Cooling
  3. Daylighting and Lighting
  4. Biophilia
  5. Noise
  6. Interior Layout
  7. Look and Feel
  8. Active Design and Exercise
  9. Amenities and Location

Research has shown the significant importance on each of these aspects in boosting employee morale and efficiency.

LEASED: 77 Germain Street BEFORE & AFTER PICS

Appnovation announced on Aug 14th, 2014 that they were coming to Saint John and that they would be creating 63 jobs here. They arrived earlier to scout for space for their new Saint John office and what they found was a diamond in the rough on the top floor of 77 Germain Street (many people know this building as 40 King Street – our city’s hub of economic development agencies)

The floor had previously been used to house some large computer equipment and had never been restored to match the lower floors. This “raw” space became vacant and available in 2014 and Appnovation saw the potential.

Stephanie partnered with Justin Omichinski, Avison Young, Vancouver to represent Appnovation in their search and lease negotiations.
