Construction Marketplace Thursday, February 21, 2019 3 4 Delos Launches World's First Residential Wellness Technology Platform Delos, the pioneer of wellness real estate and founder of the WELL Building Standard™, announced the launch of the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform – a groundbreaking offering designed to enhance health out- comes in the home and mitigate harmful indoor environmental concerns, utilizing Delos' proprietary wellness algorithms and sensor technologies, to create spaces that help reduce stress, improve sleep quality, increase performance and enhance overall well-being. "Despite most of human history spent outside, we now spend nearly 90 percent of our time indoors, and yet rarely focus on the impact the indoor environment can have on our health and well-being. Through extensive scientific research and real-world testing, we dis- covered that we can mitigate environ- mental triggers within our homes to enhance both physical and emotional well-being," said Delos Chief Executive Officer and Founder Paul Scialla. "Delos' DARWIN platform incorporates health and wellness features and tech- nologies into the home to bring the bene- fits of natural outdoor conditions inside. We are excited to work with our global partners to introduce a new era of well- ness technology into homes." Backed by over seven years of research, the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform focuses on four main components: air filtration, water purification, circadian lighting and com- fort-focused technologies, all of which simulate the natural outdoor condition. Powered by Delos' proprietary cloud- based algorithms, the dynamic platform interacts with an ecosystem of Delos approved products and solutions to bring wellness intelligence into the connected home environment. DARWIN is flexible and accessible, launching across all seg- ments of the housing market, from mass market to luxury. Delos is partnering with premier dealers, installers, builders and other stakeholders across the globe to integrate the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform into residences: HTSA Network: Delos is training professionals throughout the United States to become accredited DARWIN dealers and installers. Simonds Homes: Simonds, a leading volume home builder in Australia, will include DARWIN as part of its base package in all new homes in the state of Victoria beginning this month, setting a new baseline for market rate housing. KB Home: Delos is a title sponsor for the KB "Home of Future," scheduled to be unveiled at the Show. DARWIN is featured as the home's wellness technol- ogy platform. Lateral Estate: Lateral, a preeminent Australian real estate developer, has announced DARWIN as a standard offer- ing in all of its multi-family residences at Parc Blakehurst in Sydney. 1371 Summitridge Drive, 521 North Cannon Drive: As part of a broad nation- al roll out in luxury housing, these luxury single family homes in Beverly Hills, California incorporate the comprehen- sive home wellness platform, making them the first luxury residences to be powered by DARWIN. DARWIN is cur- rently being commissioned by many of the most sought after newly constructed luxury homes in the United States. "For years, the value proposition of smart technology in the home has been elusive for the masses," said Delos Chief Technology Officer Jim Hunter. "These technologies have primarily focused on security, energy, convenience and enter- tainment. However, it is the health and well-being of the ones we love that is most valuable. Born out of extensive research, DARWIN is the delivery plat- form for our wellness algorithms that helps improve the environmental condi- tions where we live, work, sleep and play." Delos has fostered leading research collaborations with the Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, a board of doctors from the Columbia University Medical Center and architects, scientists and wellness thought leaders to introduce wellness standards, programs and solutions into the built environment. Delos established the Well Living Lab™ in collaboration with Mayo Clinic – the world's first lab committed to researching the real-world impacts of the indoor environment on human health and performance. Delos' wellness technologies and solutions, along with the International WELL Building Institute's WELL Building Standard, have seen broad adoption of wellness real estate programs across the commercial real estate market, with near- ly 1,000 projects in 35 countries. Building upon the substantial success in the commercial sector, the launch of the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform marks the first expansion of Delos' offerings to the residential smart- home market. "Our home environment has a pro- found impact on our health, well-being and happiness. As the pioneer of wellness real estate and the founder of the WELL Building Standard, the introduc- tion of the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform is a natural exten- sion of Delos' leading science and research and makes improved health, well-being and happiness available to all," said Deepak Chopra (Delos Advisory Board Member).

Top Reasons to Give to Cell Phones for Soldiers By Rob Bergquist, Founder and Director, Cell Phones for Soldiers We're proud of the work we do at Cell Phones For Soldiers to connect and sup- port our troops and veterans in need. Since 2004, we have worked to make a difference in the lives of the brave men and women who serve (and have served) our country in uniform. And we couldn't do it without our donors. Thousands of individuals and organiza- tions have powered Cell Phones For Soldiers to help others by donating old cell phones and other mobile devices and raising money for our cause. Donors understand the meaningful work we've done for the last 14 years, and we'd like to share some of the rea- sons you should give to Cell Phones For Soldiers to help us continue our mission. The transition to civilian life can be mentally, physically and emotionally stressful, and veterans are unemployed at a higher rate than non-veterans. Sometimes that means they can't meet financial obligations – utility bills, rent, communication costs – and need a little boost. Our Helping Heroes Home pro- gram has provided one-time grants to more than 3,000 veterans. We believe that our veterans are owed a lifetime of sup- port for their work protecting our country. You can contribute to Cell Phones For Soldiers by donating money directly and securely through our website, or by sending us your old cell phones and mobile devices. You can either print off a shipping label and send in your recycled items or find one of our more than 4,000 drop-off sites by doing a location search. Cell Phones For Soldiers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and we rely on your tax-deductible donations to connect our country's bravest men and women. Even a small donation makes a difference – give today! For more information, visit www .cellphonesforsoldiers.com.
