WELL is the world’s first building standard that focuses exclusively on human health and wellness. The International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) is leading the global movement to transform our buildings and communities in ways that help people thrive. WBI delivers the cutting-edge WELL Building Standard™, the leading global rating system and the first to be focused exclusively on the ways that buildings, and everything in them, can improve our comfort, drive better choices, and generally enhance, not compromise our health and wellness. WELL was developed by integrating scientific and medical research and literature on environmental health, behavioral factors, health outcomes and demographic risk factors that affect health with leading practices in building design, construction, and management. The WELL Building Standard underwent a comprehensive expert peer review process, which included three phases – scientific, practitioner and medical review.

The living building challenge is an ever-evolving program shaped by the incredible experiences of our project teams as they continually break new ground. Over time, feedback from a diverse array of stakeholders actively using the challenge helps us understand how to refine and improve the program to have the greatest impacts. This standard is an act of optimism and belief that with the right tools in the hands of passionate, literate, and sensitive individuals, a revolutionary transformation is possible. It is a program that asks us to think holistically and to engage both our right and left brains, head, and heart.
Living Buildings are:
- Regenerative buildings that connect occupants to light, air, food, nature, and community.
- Self-sufficient and remain within the resource limits of their site.
- Create a positive impact on the human and natural systems that interact with them.
