The WELL Building Standard  is a brilliant certification scheme to help us all become the best versions of ourselves,” says Michael Brogden, operational director at Darren Evans.

“The built environment should enable all of us to thrive.

“This scheme is concerned with the wellbeing of the people who spend time in the building. It ensures buildings nurture their physical and mental health.”

Functioning in a similar way to BREEAM, WELL:

  • Is a performance-based system for commercial buildings. It measures and certifies features of buildings that impact human health and wellbeing through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.
  • It marries best practices in design and construction with evidence-based medical and scientific research – harnessing buildings and communities as a vehicle to support human wellbeing.
  • WELL can be applied across many building types and sectors, from brand new restaurants to office building renovations. It applies to new and existing buildings, new and existing interiors, as well as core and shell

How BREEAM and WELL work together: The collaboration between  BREEAM  and  WELL provides a more cohesive approach to delivering projects that place sustainability, human health and wellbeing at the top of the agenda.
