WELL v2: What’s Changed?

Custom-built support for LEEDuser members

LEEDuser tip sheets, written by our team of LEED experts, fill gaps in knowledge we’ve observed between the LEED Reference Guide, LEED Online, and LEED Interpretations. We update them regularly so that our members get the most relevant guidance for current issues on their projects.

Lower costs and fewer prerequisites are among the biggest updates to the WELL Building Standard.

Editor's note: See here for an overview of WELL v1.

Many design and construction projects do a great job of supporting their human occupants across a spectrum of key considerations, from daylight and views to low-emitting materials and additional ventilation. However, it is rare to find a project that takes a comprehensive approach to health and wellness that includes elements such as acoustics, ergonomics, biophilia, and water quality. Enter the WELL Building Standard, one of a subset of green building frameworks that supports a comprehensive approach to occupant health and well-being. WELL has been helping our industry rethink our approach to design.
