If you haven’t heard about the WELL movement, there are a few things you need to do to get started. WELL is the leading standard for supporting health and well-being in buildings--committed to improving health and human experience through impactful design.
At HF Planners, we believe that all design should adhere to the WELL Building Standard. It is important for contractors to understand the WELL Standard and why and how you can become involved.
WELL was launched in October 2014 through extensive research and development. The WELL Building standard has become the premier standard for buildings, interiors, and communities who want to implement features that support human health and wellness. It was developed by combining scientific and medical research, information on environmental health, behavioral, health and risk factors and how they affect practices in building design, construction, and management. The WELL Building Standard was established through an expert peer review process--it includes three phases--scientific, practitioner and medical review.
