The presentation will cover one of the newest green building rating systems, the WELL Building Standard, administered by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI).

She will discuss the basic concepts founded in WELL, and how WELL relates to other green building rating systems. She also will share several experiences of working on projects that are currently pursuing WELL, LEED, and LBC certifications.
