The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) announced that it has crossed the 100 million square foot mark for buildings registered and certified under the WELL Building Standard (WELL).
IWBI used the occasion to also launch Build WELL, its new mobile app, and premiere the WELLographies, compilations of human health and technical research that explore the connection between buildings and wellness.
“I’ve been referring to our work as sustainability’s ‘second wave,’” said IWBI chairman and CEO Rick Fedrizzi. “It’s clear that wave is gathering powerful momentum, evidenced by the fact that last week, the WELL Building Standard crossed the 100 million square foot threshold for registered and certified projects in more than 30 countries around the world. This is a significant milestone in our effort to advance the idea of healthier people through better buildings.”
The WELL app contains the entire WELL Building Standard in a navigable mobile format.
