WELL BUILDING STANDARD™

The WELL Building Standard™ (WELL) is the world’s first building standard focused exclusively on human health and wellness and can be applied across many real estate sectors. WELL marries best practices in design and construction with evidence-based medical and scientific research – harnessing the built environment as a vehicle to support human health and well-being.

The WELL Building Standard™ is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact the health and well-being of the people who live, work and learn in the buildings. WELL focuses on seven categories of building performance: air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind. Pioneered by Delos, the WELL Building Standard™ is grounded in evidence-based medical research that demonstrates the connection between the buildings where we spend more than 90 percent of our time and health and wellness impacts on us as occupants. The WELL Building Standard is administered by the International WELL Building Institute™ and third-party certified by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI)

WELL Accredited Professionals have demonstrated proficiency in the field of design, health, and wellness in the built environment through the WELL AP exam. The exam is based on the expertise of leading industry practitioners, researchers, and physicians, and was developed using GBCI’s rigorous test development best practices. It is designed to test a candidate’s knowledge and proficiency in building wellness and the principles, practices, and applications of the WELL Building Standard™.
