Join us at Seton’s Dell Children’s Hospital (LEED Platinum Certified!) for an introduction to the emerging WELL Building Standard. WELL is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and well-being, through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.
The Introduction to the WELL Building Standard presentation provides an overview of the WELL Building Standard ideology, structure, and certification process. The medical basis for the concept categories is introduced along with design and construction strategies to create healthy buildings. The time has come to elevate human health and comfort to the forefront of building practices and reinvent buildings that are not only better for the planet—but also for people. This presentation will introduce how to do this using the WELL Building Standard as the framework.
WELL is third-party certified by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), which administers LEED certification and LEED professional credentials. https://www.wellcertified.com/
