WELL™ is the world’s first international building certification that focuses exclusively on human health and wellness. Developed by the International Well Building Institute (IWBI), the standard allows building projects to achieve high levels of occupant health, wellbeing, and productivity.
Getting WELL-certified means that your building will adhere to the best standards in active design, air and water quality, optimal day-lighting, physical comfort, accessibility, stress-reducing and calming aesthetics, and injury prevention, among many other aspects of building design, construction, and operation.
The WELL V1 Building Standard sets performance requirements in seven categories relevant to occupant health in the built environment – Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Fitness, Comfort and Mind, and is rated at 3 levels: WELL Silver, WELL Gold and WELL Platinum.
1. New and Existing Building
