This presentation introduces the new WELL Building Standard, an evidence-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring performance of building features that impact health and wellbeing.
Healthy buildings are set to become the 'next big thing' in sustainability with an increased focus on designing buildings which put people's health and wellness at the centre of design.
This presentation will introduce the new WELL Building Standard, an evidence-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring the performance of building features that impact health and wellbeing. A WELL rating can help create a built environment that improves the nutrition, fitness, mood, sleep patterns and performance of its occupants.
Are you ready for the Wellness Revolution?

About The Exchange Public Lecture Series
The Exchange at Knowledge Market is a collaboration between Lendlease and RMIT University. The Exchange is a year-long "urban living lab" exploring the concept of community and new ways of understanding the shared urban environment through a curated series of public workshops, exhibitions, forums and community events.
During the month of October, The Exchange at Knowledge Market will host a series of public discussions around the challenges and opportunities of a zero carbon future. With a focus on the design of sustainable and resilient urban environments and communities, invited speakers will talk about how their organisations are making a difference in Victoria Harbour.
This project is supported by a capability development fund grant from the RMIT Design and Creative Practice ECP.
