The WELL Building Standard™ (WELL™) is a rigorous performance-based system for measuring and certifying features of the built environment that impact human health and well-being, through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. It 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.  WELL™ can be used to certify a variety of project types, including commercial offices, multi-family residential, retail, educational buildings and restaurants. When you earn WELL™ Certification for your building or community, you signal to the world that you’re putting people first.

The International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) is a public benefit corporation whose mission is to improve human health and well-being in buildings and communities across the world through its WELL Building Standard™ (WELL™).
