Setting the Standards for Health and Wellness: LEED v4 BD+C & the WELL Building Standard
The conversation about green buildings is widening in scope to include more issues of human health. This is evidenced by a new focus on human health in LEED v4, as well as the emergence of the WELL Building Standard. In this session we will discuss health and wellness-related changes in the LEED v4 (BD+C) rating system from v2009. We will also discuss health and wellness, as addressed by the WELL Building Standard. It will highlight how the two rating systems, although different in their approach to address this topic, complement each other.
