The International WELL Building Institute launched the WELL Building Standard version 1 in 2014.
Grounded on medical research, the WELL Building Standard (WELL) is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of the built environment that impact on human health and well-being. Today there are now 109 certified WELL projects and 840 WELL registered projects worldwide.
In May 2018, the WELL version 2 (v2) pilot was launched, this is the next version of the pioneering WELL Building Standard. The WELL v2 standard presents a set of requirements for ten relevant factors, or Concepts; Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind and Community. Placing people’s well-being at the heart of design and construction can enhance their health and experience, generate savings in medical and productivity costs, and so add value to real estate assets.
