The WELL Building Standard is the first protocol of its kind to focus exclusively on human health and wellness in the built environment. WELL identifies specific conditions, that when holistically integrated into building architecture and design, can enhance the health andwell-being of occupants.
Paul Scialla, founder of the International WELL Building Institute® (IWBI), will share emerging innovations and evidence-based research about how we can design buildings specifically to support the health and wellness of the people who live, work and learn in them. Topics will include an introduction to the WELL Building Standard, costs and benefits, early examples of WELL buildings, and performance-based metrics for health and wellness in the built environment.
The event will help design professionals who are interested in incorporating health into the design of the built environment. Join us to learn how to harness the built environment as a vehicle to support human health, well-being and comfort. For more information, visit www.WELLcertified.com.
About the WELL Building Standard: The WELL Building Standard® (WELL) is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact the health and well-being of the people who live, work, and learn in the buildings. WELL focuses on seven categories of building performance: air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind. Pioneered by Delos®, the WELL Building Standard is grounded in evidence-based medical research that demonstrates the connection between the buildings where we spend more than 90 percent of our time and health and wellness impacts on us as occupants. The WELL Building Standard is administered by the International WELL Building Institute® and third-party certified by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).
