What is WELL? The WELL Building Standard (WELL) focuses on the people in the building. Over the last decade, green building standards and standard-setting organizations have made significant strides toward the market transformation of the building industry, resulting in a rapid expansion of green buildings and environmentally conscious building practices throughout the world. WELL is the first standard of its kind that focuses solely on the health and wellness of building occupants.
- WELL identifies performance metrics, design strategies, and policies that can be implemented by the owners, designers, engineers, contractors, users and operators of a building.
- WELL is based on a thorough review of the existing research on the effects of spaces on individuals and has been advanced through a scientific and technical analysis.
- In order to achieve the requirements of the WELL Building Standard, the space must undergo a process that includes an on-site assessment and performance testing by a third party.
