The WELL Building Standard is a certification system for buildings that focuses on the health and well-being of the people who occupy them. To achieve WELL certification, a building must meet 21 points across seven categories:

Indoor Air Quality

Water Quality Management

Lighting Measurment

Thermal Conditions

Acoustic Performance

Environmental Monitoring

Occupant Experience

There is no specific technology required to obtain a WELL Building certification, but rather a combination of design, construction, and operational strategies that improve the indoor environment and promote occupant health and well being.

Some examples of the technologies and strategies that may be used to achieve WELL certification include:

Acoustic design strategies to reduce noise levels and promote a quiet, productive work environment.

The use of non-toxic, low-emitting building materials and cleaning products to promote a healthy indoor environment.

Lighting systems that are designed to mimic natural light patterns and promote circadian rhythms.

Design features that promote physical activity and encourage movement throughout the building

Water filtration systems to ensure access to safe, clean drinking water.

High-efficiency air filtration systems and ventilation design to ensure high indoor air quality and reduce exposure to harmful pollutants.

Wellness programs and policies that promote healthy behaviors and encourage employees to take care of their mental and physical health.
