About this Event

Anchored by the latest industry, public health, and scientific research, this Designing Buildings (WELL™) presentation explores how intentional design has the power to fuel our bodies, keep us moving, inspire our best work and facilitate a good night’s sleep. As architects, designers, engineers, builders, operators and owners of buildings, we too are caretakers. Gain insight and understanding of the WELL™ strategies (v1 and v2 Pilot) used for thousands of building projects in more than 55 countries around the world. By placing people at the heart of design in the built environment, we actively contribute to the global movement of health and well-being for all.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the interrelated performance of buildings, humans, and business. How an integrated approach that reinvents the built environment around its occupants, transforms the places into systems intended to promote and improve human health and well-being.
  • Recognize how the WELL Building Standard enhances and shapes safe and healthy environments for people by addressing specific issues identified from rigorous research that place health and wellness at the center of design, construction, technology and programming decisions.
  • Connect and apply health-promoting strategies and concepts of WELL Building Standard to the built environment to help create a built environment that improves the nutrition, fitness, mood, sleep patterns and overall physical / cognitive performance of its occupants.
  • Convey the knowledge of the WELL Building Standard to others by qualifying how WELL combines 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.
