Ballantyne earned the WELL Health-Safety Rating (WELL HSR) through the International WELL Building Institute.

WELL HSR is an evidence-based, third-party verified rating for all new and existing building and space types focusing on operational policies, maintenance protocols, stakeholder engagement and emergency plans to address a post-COVID-19 environment now and into the future.

"We’d like to thank WELL HSR for recognizing our team’s efforts to implement new protocols and buildings features in response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Paul Cattieu, director of sustainability, Northwood Office. "The health, safety and well-being of our customers and guests have always been paramount to Northwood, and we will continue to do our part to instill confidence in our community as they return to the office environment.”

Designed to empower owners and operators across large and small businesses to prioritize the health and safety of their staff, visitors and stakeholders, WELL HSR helps guide users in preparing their spaces for re-entry in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the leading viral response building certification, WELL HSR instills confidence in all building visitors and the broader community.
