The WELL™ certification 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. Covering ten core concepts of health and hundreds of features, WELL™ is a flexible building standard and represents the future of design.
The WELL™ Building Standard is the newest performance-based building certification available for new construction and existing operations around the world. The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) gathered a team of doctors, scientists, and practitioners to develop and peer review the standard’s performance benchmarks. The WELL™ Building Standard v1.0 was made public in Fall 2014 and the first building was certified in Spring 2016.
