About This Course:
The WELL Building Standard is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact building users’ health and well-being. On the other hand, LEED focuses on the environmental impacts and sustainability.
Despite the difference of focus between the two systems, yet they share similarities as both involve healthy, sustainable construction practices and ongoing building operations after a building is turned over. Such synergies can be of importance to architects and design professionals of other disciplines, who are seeking dual certifications for their projects.
In this webinar, an overview of the WELL concepts and features, as well as examples of building design elements, will be examined. Examples of the synergies of the WELL features and LEED credits will be provided. Selected dual-certified projects will be presented along with discussion about their WELL features and LEED credits.
Learning Objective 1
Attendees will understand the seven concepts (and their associated features, parts and requirements) of the WELL Building Standard (Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Fitness, Comfort and Mind) and how applications of such in the built environment will impact the health and well-being of the occupants.
Learning Objective 2
To reinforce attendees’ understanding of the WELL Concepts, Features, Parts and Requirements, representative examples of the built elements will be explained, along with their intentions (of improving the occupants’ health and well-being) behind the design concepts.
Learning Objective 3
Examples of WELL design concepts and building elements will be discussed, so as to illustrate their potential and positive impacts on the health and well-being of occupants.
Learning Objective 4
Examples of alignments of both WELL and LEED standards will be examined, and selected dual-certified projects will be discussed for reinforcing understanding of the subject matters.
