Humann Building Solutions, LLC has embraced the WELL Building Standards as most readers of our blog already know we at Humann Inc are attuned with all aspects of improving the Built Environment.
The WELL Building Standard is the first building standard to focus exclusively on the health and wellness of the people in buildings. WELL is an evidence and performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features that impact human health and well-being in the built environment, through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind” the International WELL Building Institute provides.
Daniel Huard a WELL Accredited Professional who has been facilitating introductory WELL presentations since the spring of 2015 adds “WELL is yet another rating system administered by Green Business Certification Incorporated (GBCI), the same group who administer LEED Certifications”.
WELL improves the built environment by specifically addressing the health and wellness within buildings and their immediate and adjacent environment and locale. The rating system has early indicators that provide great correlation between a healthy workplace and improved occupant health, cognition and as well productivity. When we look at typical business operating costs we quickly see that approximately 90% is attributable to salaries and benefits the necessity for WELL Buildings really make sound fiscal sense. Any investment delta to build a WELL Certified building quickly disappears when you calculate the ROI using worker productivity, reduction in sick time and positive worker experience.
WELL is becoming a global phenomenon, as developers and large scale property managers begin to see the benefits they are anxious to learn more. We encourage readers to reach out to Site With No Name for your WELL Building Certification and Training needs. We at Humann Building Solutions are very well versed in the application of the WELL Building Standard and will work with our clients to optimize their buildings WELLness.
Being aligned so closely with the International WELL Building Institute is another way that we live our Mission – Daniel A. Huard, WELL AP., Founding Principal, Humann Building Solutions, LLC.
