Join us online via WebEx or in person for the Introduction to the WELL Building Standard presentation. This session provides an overview of the WELL Building Standard ideology, structure, and certification process.

The medical basis for the concept categories is introduced along with design and construction strategies to create healthy buildings. 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 presentation will introduce how to do this using the WELL Building Standard as the framework.

Limited seating is available onsite for the live presentation, which is free for USGBC New York Upstate members. Contact Tracie Hall at thall@usgbc.org for the special registration code. Not a member yet? Join now!
