Technical Leadership: Wellness

"We spend 90% of our time indoors - we evolved outdoors."

Research indicates that indoor environments designed with specific health and wellbeing measures can increase productivity and reduce absenteeism. We are committed to buildings designed for both people and the planet.

The WELL Building Standard provides an assessment methodology focussed on the health & wellbeing of building occupants. Based on a thorough review of research, and further advanced through the contribution of scientific, practitioner and medical expertise, it consists of 108 performance metrics, design strategies, and policies that can be implemented by the owners, designers, engineers, contractors, as well as users and operators of a building.

The WELL Building Standard is organised into ten concepts, which include: air, water, nourishment, light, movement, thermal comfort, sound, materials, mind, and community. WELL v2 is the most rigorously tested and vetted version of the WELL Building Standard (WELL) to date, making it thepremier framework for advancing health and well-being around the world.

The WELL Accredited Professional is a credential that denotes expertise in the WELL Building Standard. Our in-house WELL Accredited Professionals can work with key stakeholders from project conception to completion. They have worked on some of the first projects in the UK to pursue WELL certification and are committed to driving the health and wellbeing agenda throughout the industry. We can prepare a gap analysis on any design or building prior to pursuing formal accreditation to allow clients to make informed decision.
