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? 

WELL has risen to address these challenges, serving as the leading tool for advancing health and well-being in buildings globally.  

We are excited to partner with the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) and Brandywine Realty Trust to bring you this exciting WELL Workshop + Tour! The day will be begin with a presentation from Melanie Koch, WELL AP from IWBI. This presentation introduces broad audiences to the WELL Building Standard with a focus on WELL v2. The WELL movement and the impact of the environment on human health and well-being will also be discussed. Key WELL differentiators and the WELL concept framework will be introduced, as well as the value of WELL for different space types. This will be useful for those seeking a high-level overview of WELL, specifically WELL v2. 

The day will then conclude with a tour of the NASDAQ WELL certified Gold Office Space in Brandywine Realty Trust's WELL v2 CORE Bronze certified Building (hint: the marquee photo and the one below are just tastes of what you'll see!).
