Addressing Health and Well-Being within the Built Environment
The WELL Building Standard is a performance-focused system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and well-being. Research has proven that an individual’s health and well-being is at least 70 percent dependent upon environmental factors and lifestyle choices. Knowing that the average individual spends at least 90 percent of his or her time indoors, leads to a focus on how the built environment can enhance our health and wellbeing.
Employers are recognizing the benefits and quick returns on investment when incorporating the WELL Building Standard into their space and organization, as many of the concepts increase productivity, attract talent, and help to retain employees. As experts in documentation and implementation, our Consultants have not only helped to guide some of the pioneers of this rating system through certification, they have also helped to guide our own organization through certification.
