WELL-Certification

 

The WELL Certification system was developed by integrating scientific and medical research and literature on environmental health, behavioral factors, health outcomes and demographic risk factors that affect health with leading methods in construction design, construction and management.

In 2014 the WELL Building standard was launched by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI). Its purpose is to promote health for all WELL- building occupants. In 2018 the WELL Building Standard version 2 was released.

WELL Building Standard v.2 identifies, measures, verifies and monitors the building's function using 10 different concepts; air, water, nourishment, movement, thermal comfort, sound, materials, mind and community.

A major reason for, and the benefit of a WELL certification is that wellbeing and health aspects are carefully reviewed, which results in lower absence and sick leave for the occupants. In addition, it has been realized that the productivity, well-being and efficiency of the employees increase, which benefits everyone in the end.

The Health Certification System WELL works perfect as a complement to an environmental- and / or energy- certification within, for example, Miljöbyggnad, LEED, BREEAM or Passive House and can be adapted to all functions and activities, though it once was adapted for offices.

As an option if not possible to certify a whole building, you can choose WELL Core. It entails the implementation of basic functions in the base building for the benefit of tenants / residents. All types of building can register for WELL Core, provided that at least 75% of the current area consists of one or more tenants / residents and / or functions as a common space in the building that is accessible to all tenants / residents.
