Our built environment can shape our habits and choices, regulate our sleep-wake cycle, drive us toward healthy and unhealthy choices, and passively influence our health through the quality of our surroundings.

The WELL Building Standard provides the opportunity to design and build with a human-centered approach, which ultimately supports the industry in comprehensively addressing human health.

WELL is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and well being, through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind.
