This introduction to the WELL Building Standard presentation provides an overview of the rating system concepts, features and certification process. The basis for each concept is introduced along with design and construction strategies and real world, practical examples. Incorporating the potential for positive health outcomes into the built environment is the future of building design. This presentation will introduce how to do this using the WELL Building Standard as the framework.
