International WELL Building Institute


The WELL Building Standard™ from the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI)
version 2 (WELL v2™) is a way for buildings and organizations to deliver more thoughtful and intentional spaces that enhance human health and well-being.

Four certification levels—Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum—can be achieved by projects pursuing WELL Certification. Points are earned based on performance results for various policy, design, and operational strategies.

The Governance Council's first objective was to vote to validate that each WELL feature adhered to the following four principles and that WELL v2 fulfilled stated best practices for standard development:
