FIS member interior design and fit-out business Claremont has appointed its first Fitwel ambassador in response to growing demand for greater workplace and building wellbeing.

Fitwel is a building rating system that provides advice and guidelines on how to design and operate healthier assets.

It applies to commercial interiors and tenanted buildings, as well as retail and residential properties.

Claremont architectural technologist Matthew Reilly, who joined the business in 2016, has taken on the role and will now work with Claremont’s workplace consultancy, account handling and project delivery teams.

Managing director Tim Frankland said: “By investing in Matthew as a Fitwel ambassador, we’re able to offer clients additional value and guidance as they strive to prioritise their people and improve their wellbeing credentials.

“Although we began our Fitwel journey well before Covid-19, we now expect this to become a very sought-after accreditation as businesses want to ensure that when their people are in the office, they’re in an environment that promotes and protects wellbeing.”
