WELL Building Certification is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and wellbeing.
Wellness Building Certification
Consideration of sustainability principles in the building industry is vital for the natural environment and human beings. The design of a building also has a big impact on the health, well-being, and productivity of its occupants.
Therefore we do not just look at the design with a low carbon and energy efficient approach, we also look at the environmental and health factors of the building e.g. fresh supply of air and daylight.
The WELL Building Certification is part of a range of wellness building standards that deliver an occupant-centric solution which have gained significant momentum during COVID-19.
WELL Building Certification
The WELL Building Certification is managed by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) and third-party certified by GBCI.
Comprehensive and interdisciplinary approaches are necessary to meaningfully address complex issues related to human health and well-being.
Many factors of the physical environment have a significant impact on day-to-day health, happiness, and productivity. A growing body of research supports these claims but much more needs to. be done to translate research into practice.
IWBI’s standards marry best practices in design and construction with evidence-based medical and scientific research—harnessing buildings and communities as vehicles to support human health and well-being.
