This presents a unique opportunity to utilize the design, construction and operation of buildings and communities to promote and improve human health.Description: The WELL Building Standard™ (WELL) is a rating system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of buildings and communities around the globe that impact health and wellness. WELL is administered by the International WELL Building Institute and third-party certified by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).Components: Our innovative program synthesizes health, scientific and design research, translating that research into more than 100 features that leverage performance, design and policies at both the building and community scale. The program addresses ten topic areas (WELL concepts) that impact human health including Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Fitness, Thermal comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind and Community. Conclusion:<\b>
Since the program launched in 2014, over 700 projects spanning 32 countries across a variety of building sectors have committed to the healthy building movement and are in pursuit of WELL Certification. Of those, 72 have achieved certification. To date, 26 projects are located in the United Kingdom, four of which have already achieved WELL Certification.Drawing on research from multiple disciplines and presenting integrative, actionable interventions targeted at creating healthier built environments, WELL promotes the creation of healthier buildings and communities and the right to health for all.
