WELL is not an acronym, but it does stand for something.  WELL represents health and wellness in the built environment. The WELL Building Standard is the leading rating system for designing and operating healthy buildings. There are a lot of things you can incorporate into the design and construction of a building that will result in healthier and happier building occupants once the building is operational. The WELL Building Standard is like a guidebook or recipe in which you can follow in order to improve the health and wellness of the people that occupy a building.

There are currently 100 WELL features (or concepts) focused on improving the following seven categories:  Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Fitness, Comfort, and Mind. WELL lays out the path for a building to have clean, fresh, and healthy air, water, and food in the building. Also, WELL promotes fitness, comfort, well-being, health, and productivity in numerous ways including Light guidelines.  Light serves a very important role in the productivity, well-being, comfort, and even health of building occupants.

With several WELL APs on staff and being one of the first green building consultants to have WELL project experience, SIG is well-positioned to help your next WELL building be a success. This is a fun rating system, and with the help of our team of consultants and engineers, we feel as if a WELL certification could be a fun and educational experience for you. Also, a big benefit we bring to a WELL project is that we have the engineers in-house that can do the required testing a WELL Assessor comes out to do . The main benefit here is that you will know how your building is performing and where to make improvements before the WELL Assessor travels to your project. This way you can rest assured that you will not need to pay the WELL Assessor to make a second costly trip to your building.

If you are considering a WELL certification and want to learn more, please let us know.  We would be happy to answer your questions and help you better understand the program.
