Green Building Design for Wellness

The Well Building Standard®

WELL Building Consulting

It 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.

The WELL Building Standard® Combines best practices in design and construction with evidence-based health and scientific research - harnessing buildings as vehicles to support human health and well-being.

Our data driven and methodical approach allows our WELL Consultants to provide the best strategy for determining and achieving WELL Certification for your organization.

Our Method

First, we evaluate any schematic design documentation and policy documentation to work with clients to develop the best strategy toward achieving WELL certification. Second, we review the features included in WELL project and determine what are priority is based on our client’s budget and goals, project type, and the certification level being pursued. 

We do the heavy-lifting

Allow us to support your timeline by removing the added tasks that certification will add to your team. Our goal is to add value to space design, behavior modification, and organizational process. We meet with all stakeholders, including your assigned Well Contact, throughout the entire process.
