Fitwel have now released a launch date for the anticipated Version 3 (V3) update confirming that the beta will be available to the public from the 4th of June 2024. Fitwel have always strived to keep their scheme innovative and scientifically current which is evident in this update with a greater focus on:

  • Internal and External Acoustic Comfort.
  • Enhanced External Infrastructure.
  • Flood Risk Management.
  • Construction Safety.
  • Biodiversity.

Element Sustainability has been able to prepare for the release date by reviewing insights provided by Fitwel such as change logs, seminars and overviews of the updated credits that are to be included in the V3 guidance. This allows Element Sustainability to start providing V3 assessments from this release date of the 4th of June.

This update brings with it enhancements to the online portal to help streamline the certification process for buildings being assessed under V3.

Currently, all V2.1 projects will still be available for registration until July 15th 2024 at which point all new projects will be automatically registered under V3.
