What is a WELL rating and when is it required?
The WELL rating system follows performance-based criteria that measure, monitor and certify parts of the built environment that have an innate impact on wellbeing and health of humans. Its aim is to help prevent chronic diseases by using the built environment through the improvement of nutrition, mood, fitness, sleep patterns and performance of its occupants. Already over 250 separate projects across twenty-two countries are already registered for a WELL rating. 20 of which are in Australia.
WELL is an optional energy rating that demonstrates industry excellence, showing a building has met sustainability goals, attempting to drastically reduce a buildings carbon footprint as well as attempting to improve the health and wellbeing of its occupants.
