DBA alumnus Darren Allen is the Project Director for IMMUNE™ — the first set of open-source standards focused on health for the built environment. The IMMUNE Building Standard™  certifies that a built environment is able to withstand and prevent future health challenges and minimizes the impact of a pandemic such as COVID-19 and other bacteriological or toxicological threats. 

The standard is inspired by technologies and procedures successfully applied in hospitals and “clean rooms” and adapted for use in commercial real estate development. IMMUNE™ can be used by any international building assessment and certification entity to certify buildings at any stage of their life cycle and type, such as new, in-use, or a regeneration project. 

Mace, the international consultancy and construction company based in London, was recently the first in the world to obtain IMMUNE Building Standard™ certification for its headquarters located in the City of London.
