Fostering Wellness Through the Built Environment
Presented by USGBC and BOMA St. Louis
Placing health and wellness at the heart of design and construction decisions can have a positive impact on human health, social equity, and return on investment. At this session, learn how to engineer spaces for improved community health and increased real estate value.
Developed in partnership with leading physicians, scientists, and industry professionals, The WELL Building Standard® (WELL) is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact the health and well-being of the people who live, work, and learn in these buildings. Join us to learn more about how the built environment can make a positive impact on communities through improving our health, happiness, and productivity.
- Discuss current issues related to wellness in the built environment
- Identify design strategies to promote health and well-being
- Describe the WELL Building Standard as a tool to support health and well-being in the built environment
- Explain how WELL compliments existing building standards like LEED
