KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 17 -- Following two years of extensive development, in-use application and review, the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) has formally launched the latest version of the WELL Building Standard – WELL v2.
According to a statement, the newly-graduated standard is the most resilient and responsive version of IWBI’s rating system to date and serves as the foundation upon which the entire WELL ecosystem is built.
WELL v2 is a vehicle for buildings and organisations to deliver more thoughtful and intentional spaces that contribute to improved human health and well-being.
It includes a set of strategies aimed at enhancing human health through design interventions, operational protocols and policies and a commitment to fostering a culture of health and well-being.
Built upon the pioneering foundation of the first version of the WELL Building Standard (WELL v1), WELL v2 draws expertise from a diverse community of WELL users, medical and design practitioners, public health professionals and building scientists worldwide.
WELL v2 consolidates previous iterations and pilots into a single rating system that is designed to accommodate all project types and sectors.
The system is intended to grow in specificity and specialty over time, adapting to accommodate diverse project types and geographies and in response to new evidence and ever-evolving public health imperatives.
From enhanced coaching support and research deep-dives to opportunities to connect and learn from peers, WELL v2 brings a suite of enhancements, products and services that will reset how organisations engage with WELL and the growing global community.
