Jubilee becomes first Texas MPC to join WELL for Residential program

by Emily Marek

Jubilee, a master-planned community from Johnson Development, committed to the International WELL Building Institute’s (IWBI) WELL for Residential certification program.

As part of that program, a third-party inspector will review each Jubilee home to determine whether it qualifies as a WELL residence. To qualify, builders must include at least 40 of IWBI’s 100-plus health-related strategies, many of which relate to air quality, water quality, thermal comfort and sound.

“By adopting evidence-based WELL strategies, builders in Jubilee are highlighting their commitment to help make a positive impact in the community,” said Jessica Cooper, chief product officer for IWBI.

All eight builders in Jubilee’s first phase of development — Chesmar Homes, Coventry Homes, David Weekley Homes, Highland Homes, Newmark Homes, Perry Homes, Tri Pointe Homes and Westin Homes — now have the opportunity to earn the WELL for Residence seal for each of their homes. These builders have already committed to including a variety of wellness features as standard in every Jubilee home, including circadian rhythm lighting, smart thermostats and fresh-air intakes.

“This new WELL for Residential program adds another layer to the holistic wellness vision we have set for Jubilee,” June Tang, vice president and general manager of the community, said in a press release. “It can help give residents further peace of mind in their choice to live in Jubilee.”
