The WELL Building Standard™ is a certification scheme developed by the International WELL Building Institute™ to highlight the benefits of integrating occupant health and well-being in the design, construction and operation of our buildings.
The standard is organised into seven main ‘concepts’: Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Fitness, Comfort and Mind. All are applicable to three categories across a range of building types; new and existing buildings, new and existing interiors and core and shell compliance.
The Virtual Environment (VE) offers many outputs that are relevant to these seven concepts. Thermal comfort indices for ASHRAE 55, indoor air quality, mean age of air, visual comfort, daylight performance using Dynamic Daylighting and sky view are just some examples of appropriate modelling outputs for WELL credits.
