The WELL Building Standard

A dynamic rating system for the built environment that combines best practices in design and construction with evidence-based health and wellness interventions, the WELL Building Standard® is a significant new development for the building industry. The WELL Building Standard is a culmination of research and development by leading professionals in medicine, science, and the green building and construction industry. The overall aim of the WELL Building Standard is to improve and protect the health and wellness of building occupants. The WELL course will also prepare you should you wish to take the Well AP test and become a Well accredited professional.

The presentation outlines the creation of the International WELL Building Institute and The Well Building Standard, which is third party certified through collaboration with Green Business Certification Inc.—the certification body for the LEED Green Building Rating System. Presented within the course are the criteria supporting certification in which 100 performance metrics, design strategies, and policies work harmoniously with LEED which is now a known acronym standing for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

The framework of this innovative and extremely relevant standard encompasses seven concepts of wellness: Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Fitness, Comfort and Mind, and it’s often a minor tweak, slight adjustment or just a focus on a specific concept that can make a tremendous difference to employee health and wellbeing and many of the recommended preventive medical intention strategies that respond to the performance metrics are intuitive while offering significant health benefits. OFS is offering this education as a commitment to further educating its partners with current and relevant industry education, supporting our continued investment in not just creating products that promote environments that focus on human centered design, but education on the innovative trends that support that commitment.
