WELL Building Standard: Tools for Healthier Buildings

Wednesday, Feb 12, 2014

There exists a complex relationship between our surroundings and our well-being, yet conventional practice and our rating systems fall woefully short of helping architects to assure that our built environment actually supports our health. Current building codes, standards, and guidelines that address indoor environmental quality do so inadequately; their non-holistic approach falls short of providing effective solutions and measurable outcomes. As a result, some buildings are actually making us sick.

The WELL Building Standard is a new, research based protocol for buildings that prescribes technology enhancements and performance-based measures across seven categories to make the human perform and feel better. Its use can help architects to measure health impacts and design healthier buildings
