IFMA SV: Introducing the Next Version of WELL:WELLv2

February 26, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm PST

High level overview of the next version of WELL, the WELLv2 pilot, representing a new paradigm for supporting and advancing human health through better buildings. Explore how the design of buildings and interiors, and the operations and behaviors within the places where we live, work, learn, and play, can be optimized to advance human health and well-being.

Top 3 key points/takeaways from the presentation:

    1. Discuss the key reasons for designing and building spaces with a primary focus on human health and well-being.
    2. Distinguish between the LEED and WELL standards, and identify the ten different categories of WELLv2.
    3. Understand the importance of testing and verification as well as continuous monitoring in high-performance buildings.
