Based on its founding commitment “For All Well-being”, MQDC is eager to apply IWBI’s global expertise to ensure the health and well-being of its residents, said Keerin Chutumstid, president of Property & Service at MQDC.
“Since its founding, MQDC has worked to achieve the well-being of not only our residents, but also surrounding communities and all living beings,” he said. “We are therefore delighted to be working with IWBI, the first global rating system to focus exclusively on how buildings, and everything in them, can improve our comfort, drive better choices, and generally enhance, not compromise, our health and wellness.”
MQDC's international portfolio of over 20 projects includes the award-winning True Digital Park “smart city” as well as national symbols such as the joint-venture Iconsiam megaproject on the bank of the Chao Phraya River.
MQDC supports the Research & Innovation for Sustainability Center (RISC), which works to raise sustainability and well-being across the property sector. RISC's office in central Bangkok is the first in Thailand to be built to the Well Building Standard.
The standard was launched in 2014 after six years of research and development as the premier standard for buildings, interior spaces, and communities seeking to implement, validate, and measure features that support and advance human health and wellness.
