The WELL Concept of Air

Concept of Air

It is our goal to curate a holistic WELL community, from build to operation, that truly supports individuals to live well and age well. That’s why Trico LivingWell is pursuing WELL Building Standard™ Version 2 (WELL v2™) Certification – and we’re the first older adult community to do so! The WELL Building Standard™ rigorously assesses building performance, making it the most comprehensive rating system for buildings globally.

The WELL Concept of Air


Today we’ll talk about the WELL concept of Air, which aims to achieve high levels of indoor air quality across a building’s lifetime. The approaches to achieve this include reduction or elimination at the source, active and passive building design and operation strategies, and human behavior interventions.

Trico LivingWell will have superior air quality in all amenity spaces, hallways, and residential suites. Our thoughtful design uses strategies such as: 

1) High ceilings to maximize air volume.

2) Superior HVAC systems with HEPA air filters for all common amenity spaces and dementia care households, which will minimize harmful substances in the air, including influenza and coronavirus, smoke, pollen, and dust.

3) 100% outdoor fresh air intake for all residential hallways.

4) An individual cased and ducted fan coil system in every suite, with a MERV13 filter to provide independent heating, cooling, and extra air quality filtration.

5) Every suite will have negative pressurization, ensuring airflow moves from the corridor to the suite, limiting the transmission of harmful air particles.

6) Localized HVAC air filtration devices for high-traffic amenity spaces, to quickly filter out any harmful air particles.

7) Smoking indoors and within a 7.5-meter radius of the site is prohibited, not only for Trico LivingWell but for the entire Kingsland Junction campus.

From construction to operation, Trico LivingWell fully commits to enhancing human health and well-being.
