AREIT, Inc. (AREIT), the real estate investment trust of Ayala Land Inc., reported that its properties in Metro Manila, have secured Safety Seal Certifications from the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) within their respective LGUs.

The firm said these properties are the Ayala North Exchange, Solaris One, McKinley Exchange Corporate Center, and The 30th Corporate Center.


In compliance with recent public health standards set by the government, the Safety Seal Certification recognizes and verifies the safety initiatives an establishment has implemented in order to safely continue with operations in lieu of the global health crisis.

“AREIT’s buildings have given attention to improvements in ventilation systems to limit risk of COVID contamination and transmission through maximizing fresh air intake in its air-conditioning systems,” the firm said.


It added that, “In doing so, indoor spaces of these buildings are able to maintain adequate air exchange while still keeping cooling functionality to maintain desirable temperatures for occupants.”

Other standard safety protocols done by AREIT include health declaration and thermal scanning at every entrance and exit of the establishment, use of protective equipment (PPE) for building frontliners, and an isolation area for COVID-suspected individuals.

It also includes contact tracing, installation of guides and physical barriers in common areas to maintain social distancing, regular disinfection of high touchpoints and increased availability of sanitation devices within common areas.

“AREIT, through its Sponsor Ayala Land, acknowledges the need these initiatives address in creating safe public spaces to drive consumer activity and reenergize the economy,” the firm said.

It noted that, “By partaking in this progress towards safer communal spaces, employees can benefit from the use of prime facilities that are secure, reliable and conducive for the work environment. This is in conjunction with the vaccination rollout now accommodating the A4 category or the essential working force.”
