WELL is a third-party building sustainability certification program focused exclusively on human health and wellness. Administered by International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) located in New York, NY, the WELL standard is applied to over 5,300 projects across 66 countries.
It sets pathways for accomplishing health-first factors across 10 core concepts. Rigorous performance standards for design interventions, operational protocols and company-wide practices are verified by a third-party WELL Accredited Professional.
Certification includes submission of project documentation and an onsite audit and can result in the award of a Silver, Gold or Platinum standard. It works from a single interior space to an entire organization.
