Delos is a wellness real estate and technology company that is helping improve the health of people around the world by creating spaces designed to promote enhanced physical, mental, and social wellbeing.

Delos is proud to be partnered with Hunter Investment Corporation in the HEZ developments by providing every project with the world class DARWIN Wellness Intelligence system; which is designed to monitor, calibrate, and respond to changing environmental conditions, to help create a healthier and happier environment for staff and workforce.

International Well Building

The International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) is leading the global movement to transform our commercial and industrial buildings and communities in ways that help people thrive. IWBI delivers the cutting-edge WELL Building Standard™, the leading global rating system and the first to be focused exclusively on the ways that commercial and industrial buildings, and everything in them, can improve our comfort, drive better choices, and generally enhance, not compromise, our health and wellness.

Hunter Investment Corporation through the HEZ development, will be pushing to be the country’s first green fill development to achieve The WELL Community Standard and is exclusively focused on the health and wellbeing of communities and people that live, work, and play within those communities.

While Green Star is predominantly focused on environmental sustainability, WELL is predominantly focused on social sustainability. The tools are intended to work together and complement each other.

Environmental Masterplan.

HEZ’s combination of ecology and economy heralds a new approach that will set new environmental standards for similar developments across NSW.

  • As one of Australia’s most significant commercial and industrial zones, HEZ covers an area of 3,200 hectares,¬ around 70 percent of the Zone (2,300 hectares) is dedicated as a green buffer of forest and rural land.
  • HEZ embarked on a first for Australia by developing an Ecological Constraints Master Plan (ECMP) for the entire site. It has since won numerous industry awards.
  • The ECMP is a comprehensive audit of plant and animal life and their habitats within the developable area of 900 hectares. HEZ aims to protect the environment while allowing for development.

HEZ ecologists used the latest GPS/GIS technology to log flora and fauna and habitat features. This data was used to form the Geographic Information System. The modelling program assists in determining the most appropriate locations for development, and the ecological impact.

The ECMP work is improving the data held by National Parks and Wildlife and bringing a balance to the influence of the environment on job-generating development.

The Hunter Economic Zone (HEZ) has won major industry awards, for example, winner of the:

  • Lower Hunter Environmental Excellence in Business Award
  • NSW Surveyors Environmental Planning Awards
  • Sir Thomas Mitchell Awards
