The WELL Building Standard is revolutionizing the way people think about buildings. It explores how design, operations and behaviors within the places where we live, work, learn and play can be optimized to advance human health and well-being.
Employers can play a critical role by leveraging the workplace environment to recruit and retain the best talent, reduce absenteeism and improve the satisfaction and productivity of their employees.
WELL is premised on a holistic view of health. Covering ten core concepts of health and hundreds of features, WELL is a flexible building standard and represents the future of modern design. The evidence-based WELL Building Standard aspires to advance healthy buildings for all.
In the new version of WELL the concepts have been organized into ten-plus-one concepts: Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind, Community, plus Innovations.
WELL Certification is provided by US based IWBI (International WELL Building Institute) and GBCI (Green Business Certification Inc.). To date, WELL has enrolled more than 830 projects encompassing over 155 million square feet of real estate in 32 countries worldwide. In Europe nearly 190 projects across 13 countries are engaged with WELL, representing 25% of global WELL project square footage.
"As humans, we have always been dependent on our environments to nurture and sustain us. We rise with the sun, we eat off the land, we make shelter of stones and trees. We need water, air and light to survive. We need good water, good air and good light to thrive."
