First School Project in the Middle East to Receive WELL Precertification
We are thrilled to announce that our new campus, located in Mohammed Bin Salman Nonprofit City, has been awarded WELL Precertification from the prestigious International WELL Building Institute pbcTM.
WELL is the premier building standard to focus on enhancing people’s health and wellness through the buildings where we live, work and play. Specifically, it measures performance across ten categories – Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind and Community.
As the first school project in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East region to receive this esteemed recognition, the Misk Schools development represents a ground-breaking achievement.
Dr Steffen Sommer, Misk Schools Director General, expressed his enthusiasm saying: “With our new learning, working and social spaces thoughtfully designed and meticulously crafted to the highest standards, we are confident that our community will enjoy elevated levels of health, happiness, and productivity, allowing us to deliver on our vision to become a top school for leadership.”
As we prepare to move into our new facilities this summer, we are enrolled to pursue full WELL Certification, creating an environment that continues to prioritise the well-being of our students and staff.
