US programme for holistic buildings

The US building classification programme WELL Building Standard® WELL is the first standard in the world to adopt a holistic approach. It focuses primarily on the impact that a building has on the health and well-being of the people in it. Various features such as the quality of the air and drinking water prevailing in a building or the lighting concept offered are considered and assessed individually. This results in a total score leading to the award of WELL in the categories silver, gold or platinum.

The WELL standard is awarded by the International WELL Building Institute® (IWBI).

About WELL

The WELL Building Standard was developed over seven years by scientists, physicians and architects and came on the market in 2014.
