Building for well-being

New Health Building Standard Certification

We spend 90% of our time indoors so the focus on making those spaces as healthful as possible is very important. In fact, it’s projected that wellness will be the next trillion-dollar industry.

A new program takes aim at that industry and will help builders and architects make structures better for the health of the people who inhabit them. WELL—from the International WELL Building Institute—is a building certification program similar to LEED that puts the health and wellness of people at its center. Its seven key concepts include:

  • Air
  • Water
  • Nourishment
  • Light
  • Fitness
  • Comfort
  • Mind

The first buildings that have complied with WELL have reported that 92% of employees noticed a positive effect on their health and well-being already.

Daltile supports the WELL program and looks forward to providing more healthy products that help you meet requirements for sustainable and healthy certifications
