Sustainability & wellbeing

The Spine has been built and accredited with the WELL Standard, making it the healthiest building in the North West and one of the healthiest in the UK.

The WELL Building Standard is the premier standard for buildings, interior spaces and communities seeking to implement, validate and measure features that support and advance human health and wellness.

The standard consists of seven concepts – air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. These concepts have all been incorporated into the building design to create a happy and healthy environment and to optimise the health of our colleagues and clients.

The WELL standard includes biophilic design features including the use of repeating patterns in nature which have a naturally calming effect on the mind. The introduction of plants at various levels throughout the building will also improve air quality and the naturalistic environment uses a natural colour palette. The building’s design echoes that of a tree rising through the building, with earthier colours for the lower floors that merge into greener, leafier colours and patterns and the introduction of blue tones on the upper floors.

You can be sure to leave The Spine feeling refreshed, relaxed and re-energised.

"The Spine will pursue world-class standards of build and design, hopefully raising the bar for sustainable future development in Liverpool and creating an excellent working environment for the RCP and other new occupiers in the building."

Joe Anderson, Mayor of Liverpool
