WELL is a voluntary certification programme developed in 2014 by the company U.S.Green Building Council (USGBC) of which ESA engineering has been a member since 2017.
The WELL certification, managed by the WELL Building Institute (IWBI), is issued by the GBC and other authorised bodies. In Italy, the promotion is carried out by the International WELL Building Institute™.
The objective of the certification is to evaluate the property, considering aspects related to people’s well-being, such as environmental sustainability, landscape protection and the use of renewable resources. Particular attention is given to the building’s users. The comfort of the occupants or inhabitants will, in fact, be subject to evaluation.
The version of the protocol currently in force is WELLv2 (updated to 2018).
