    Description:

    Employees are the single largest expense for any company, far exceeding the cost of building and maintaining any facilities. We know that the built environment can both positively and adversely affect the health and productivity of occupants and employers are increasingly finding value in providing their employees with healthier and more conscious work environments. 


    Whereas LEED is focused on the systems and structures of a building, WELL, a complementary rating system also administered by the Green Building Certification Institute, is concerned with the health and wellness of the occupants of the building. Learn where LEED and WELL overlap, and how they are significantly different, as well as the structure and components of the WELL Building Standard.

    Learning Objectives:

    1) Discuss the reasoning behind the WELL Building Standard
