Introd­uction Well Bulding Standard

A building certif­ication focusing exclus­ively on human health. A certif­ication program for buildings focusing on optimizing occupant health, encour­aging healthy habits, increasing employee produc­tivity, and improving quality of life.

Property undergoes a site assessment to determine what modifi­cations you’ll need to make to achieve WELL certif­ica­tion. An experi­enced WELL Accredited Profes­sional will guide you through the process and advise you on modifi­cations as required. When you’re done, the Intern­ational WELL Building Institute, through its collab­oration with the Green Building Certif­ication Institute, will conduct on-site perfor­mance tests to ensure compliance with silver, gold, or platinum certif­ication levels.
Recert­ifi­cation is required every 3 years
