As part of the official London Festival of Architecture Programme (LFA) 2019, and the NAWIC Green Month, you will be able to learn about the practical application of WELL Building Standard. The International WELL Building Standard has scientifically related the buildings where we live, work and relax with human health and productivity. Businesses have been increasingly adopting the system to cultivate spaces that promote active lives and wellness.
Whilst the standard sounds logical and straightforward, there is only limited knowledge to design and deliver it in practice and meet certification. This is even rare in ‘Shell and Core’ projects which is now increasingly becoming a common ask in the UK. Our speakers have delivered WELL projects and currently working on quite a few. The examples will include various scales of projects and how the industry and business is transforming. They will share the challenges faced on site and why collaboration is key for successfully delivering a WELL project.
WELL is the first evidence-based measuring and certification system that monitors health, well-being and productivity of the occupants in an operational building. It measures attributes of a building by looking at seven main areas – air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.
