Measuring wellbeing: The WELL Building Standard™
The WELL Building Standard™ is a performance-based system that is responsible for measuring, certifying, and monitoring all features of a built environment.
From the construction of the building down to its furnishings, all aspects of a building are measured for their impact on human health and wellbeing.
To achieve the WELL Building Standard™, 10 WELL Concepts must be met: Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind and Community.
How to choose furniture that contributes to the WELL Building Standard™
The WELL Building Standard™ offers a thorough framework for testing and measuring how a building is designed from a ‘People First’ perspective.
Whether your goal is to achieve the WELL Building Standard™, or to simply put more emphasis on workplace wellbeing, there are furniture choices you can make to help assist this.
Let’s take a closer look at how the WELL Concepts of Movement, Light, Materials & Mind can be applied to your furniture choices.
