MQDC featured in the annual summit of the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), whose building standards the developer is pioneering in Thailand. 

Ms. Phetcharin Phongphetkul, a Senior Sustainable Designer at Research & Innovation for Sustainability Center (RISC), joined “WELL Summit 2023” in Washington DC on 25-26 September. 

RISC is a research hub set up by MQDC to advance standards in well-being and sustainability across the sector.  

The center won Thailand’s first WELL Building Standard certification and Southeast Asia’s first “Gold” in the New & Existing Interiors category.  

RISC applies the WELL Standard and its own research for sustainable quality of life in MQDC developments such as The Forestias, a world-first forest district across 64 hectares at Bangna.  

Ms. Phongphetkul shared her experience as a WELL Building Standard expert and presented the concept of The Forestias at the summit. 

The urban forest district is designed under MQDC’s “For All Well-Being” principle with sustainable development in a green neighborhood combining homes with retail, leisure, offices, and healthcare. 

Ms. Phongphetkul received a “2022 IWBI Award” as a WELL Faculty and WELL Accredited Professional (AP), helping achieve equity, well-being, and good quality of life through design.
