While varying shades of “green” building have become commonplace in the design and construction industry, a new trend toward a people-centric design standard is emerging. The WELL Building Standard, like LEED, is a third-party performance standard developed to spur market transformation. WELL’s focus is internal to the building occupancy and is developed to emphasize seven key indicators of occupant health: air, water, light, nourishment, fitness, comfort and mind.
This webinar will review key tenets of the WELL standard, which is developed by Delos based on current industry understanding of human health and well-being. It includes a discussion of key challenges to the standard’s implementation, such as criteria, interpretation, certification process, and place in the market.
