Speaker Maria Papiez, an architect and sustainability lead at EwingCole will discuss the WELL Building Standard's history, development, ideology, structure and goals.

This introduction will be followed by the presentation of two case studies of in-process projects — a Lenovo Building 6 from the office of EwingCole, and a Wake County Public School elementary prototype from the office of Moseley Architects. The WCPSS case study will be presented by students in Dr. Traci Rider's Toward Sustainability class at NC State University, where interdisciplinary student teams partnered with design firms for these conceptual explorations.

LEED v4 is the latest version of the LEED rating systems, offering a more streamlined, specialized and better user experience. More than 1,000 projects in over 60 countries are currently using LEED v4 to achieve their sustainability and performance goals.
