A WELL AP accreditation denotes expertise in The WELL Building Standard™ (WELL™) and a commitment to advancing human health and wellness in buildings and communities.
How do you quantify Health and Wellness?
As a WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP) my role is to discuss, present and act as guide to those aiming to advance human health and wellness through building design. The WELL Building Standard™ (WELL™) is the leading tool for creating a better environment. It is comprehensive and holistic in its approach, flexible in implementation, global in reach and, uniquely, has measurable and verifiable outcomes. Giving you clear facts and information that can enable you to monitor and adapt to ensure you meet your wellness goals.
WELL™ leverages design, policy and operational strategies to improve human health and well-being in buildings and communities around the world. The ten WELL concepts focus on environmental conditions, such as acoustical quality or thermal comfort, as well as how the environment can promote healthy eating, physical activity and cognitive health
The WELL Health-Safety Rating for Facility Operations and Management is an evidence-based, third-party verified rating for all new and existing building and facility types focusing on operational policies, maintenance protocols, occupant engagement and emergency plans.
Designed to empower owners and operators across large and small businesses alike to take the necessary steps to prioritize the health and safety of their staff, visitors and stakeholders, the WELL Health-Safety Rating can help users confidently prepare their spaces for re-entry in a post-COVID-19 environment by instilling confidence and trust in occupants and the broader community.
The WELL Health-Safety Rating consists of operational interventions that includes five key themes.;
· Cleaning and Sanitization Procedures
· Emergency Preparedness Programs
· Health Service Resources
· Air and Water Quality Management
· Stakeholder Engagement and Communication

Confused by all the conflicting reports and ideas behind "Wellbeing" and "Wellness"? The WELL Building Standard is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and well-being. Ask us to show you the evidence.
Want to know more about The WELL Building Standard™ but don't know where to start? We offer seminar and training sessions at all levels to introduce the concepts and benefits (environmental, social and economic) of WELL accreditation.
Now, with The WELL Portfolio™ program, organisations can enhance the places where people live, work, learn and play and improve human well-being at scale across multiple spaces in a streamlined and cost-effective way – all at their own pace. The WELL Portfolio™ is a program for companies at the leading edge of the movement to improve global health.
So, if you are considering starting starting a project and/or would like some guidance , and the WELL Coaching team, are on hand to take you through each step to advise, support and help throughout the process. We'll also help you choose the right level of certification (Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum) whether you are a new building owner, fit out contractor or individual occupier.
Q. "I'm interested in creating a better place to work but don't want to go for full certification at this stage can you still help?"
A. Yes, we can help you improve the workplace by showing you effective ways to achieve improvement. Its up to you when, how or what you implement and how quickly you want to proceed.
Q. "I'm a developer and not an occupier so how does WELL Certification help me?"
A. Under our Shell and Core certification scheme you can prepare the building in such a way that a future occupier can apply for their own certification. In fact recent US studies show a 73% positive impact on building leases when C&S certified.
Q. "What does it cost?"
A. Full WELL certification fees are available on request - these are normally based on the project size. Consultancy and seminar fees are separate and dependant on the needs of the client.
Stress and the war for talent are some of the greatest challenges facing businesses today, and designing for health can help you solve for both. In this short video, Jess Cooper explains how you can use WELL as your tool for success
