Building for Wellness

Fri, 12/7/2018 - 8:45am - 2:45pm

130 North 18th Street, 26th Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19103

We spend 90% of our time indoors...

It should come as no surprise that the indoor environment greatly impacts our health and wellness. How can spaces be designed to promote wellbeing and productivity? What type of lighting can help our natural sleep-wake cycles? How does layout influence the way we move throughout the day? 

Two standards have risen to answer these questions and more.

Join Green Building United as we hear experts discuss the WELL and Fitwel building standards. Attendees will learn about each standard and what it takes for a building to be certified and a person to be credentialed, accented by project examples. Whether you are a building owner or operator, architect or designer, sustainability consultant or educator, or generally interested in health, wellness, and indoor environmental quality, this event is for you!
