For the additional ‘behind the scenes’ adjustments TD has partnered with Cadillac Fairview, owner and operator of TD Centre. Improvements to several base building systems and operations will support carbon filtration for the HVAC and detailed cleaning policies outlining operations schedules and equipment. To further support the health and wellness of employees, a WELL guide will provide information on the added features in the space, health benefits, assistance programs and other resources available. TD will use the learnings from past projects, this current pilot, and features of the WELL Building Standard to inform and guide health and wellness integration for future projects.
