Course Description:

Understanding the WELL Building Standard workshop provides a deep dive into the WELL Standard. The ideology and structure of the program are covered in depth as well as the certification process. The heart of the workshop is an in-depth review of the intents and requirements of each Concept category and Feature including an understanding of the medical basis for each Feature and design and construction strategies for implementing the concepts and requirements. Case studies of WELL pilot projects and other projects actively implementing the Standard are highlighted.

The WELL Building Standard marries best practices in design and construction with evidence-based health and wellness interventions. In this workshop, attendees learn how to harness the built environment as a vehicle to support human health, wellbeing, and comfort. Strategies for improving the nutrition, fitness, mood, sleep patterns and performance of occupants through design and construction practices are explored in detail. This intensive workshop helps building professionals and owners understand their role as public health practitioners. It also helps medical professionals understand the critical role that the built environment plays in a person’s health and wellbeing. For those wishing to become amongst the WELL Accredited Professionals, this workshop serves as a critical step in the preparation for the exam. The time has come to elevate human health and comfort to the forefront of building practices and reinvent buildings that are not only better for the planet—but also for people. This workshop will teach you how to do this using the WELL Building Standard as the framework.

Learning Objectives:

– Identify the purpose, key components, and structure of the WELL Building Standard

– Discuss the medical basis for the Concepts and Features of the WELL Building Standard

– Understand successful strategies for meeting the requirements of the WELL Features

– Learn WELL resources and how to become a WELL Accredited Professional
