Integrating occupant health and wellbeing throughout design, construction and operation

Let our expert team support you when it comes to ensuring the health and wellbeing of building occupants. We support the WELL Building Standard™ - a certification scheme developed by the International WELL Building Institute™ - to highlight and promote the benefits of integrating occupant health and wellbeing in the design, construction and operation of buildings.

WELL v2™ is the most rigorously tested and vetted version of the WELL Building Standard to date, comprising 110 available points within 10 concepts:

  • Air
  • Movement
  • Mind
  • Water
  • Sound
  • Community
  • Nourishment
  • Materials
  • Thermal Comfort
  • Light

IES' Virtual Environment (VE) software offers many outputs that are relevant to the WELL concepts. Thermal comfort indices for ASHRAE 55, indoor air quality, mean age of air, visual comfort, daylight performance using dynamic daylighting and sky view are just some examples of appropriate modelling outputs for WELL credits. 

With this capability, and under the leadership of Mark Knipfer, Vice President of the IES South Atlantic Division, our global consulting team can assist you in enabling and embedding good practice Health and Wellbeing concepts in your projects and buildings, helping you achieve WELL v2™ Certification in the process.

Mark has an extensive understanding of the WELL Standard and was part of a select group that was invited in 2015 to write, review, and test the WELL v1 Accreditation Exam.  He has also worked on numerous projects across the globe, supporting individual feature assessments or serving as overall WELL consultant.
