Introduction to the WELL Building Standard: A Focus on Light

  • Royal Glenora Club 11160 River Valley Road Northwest Edmonton, AB, T5J 2G7 Canada (map)

The building industry is seeing an increased interest in human health and well-being, notably through the development of health and well-being rating systems for buildings.  This session will explore how the built environment impacts human health and will review the first health and well-being rating system to hit the market, the WELL Building Standard.  The Light concept category, an integral part of WELL, will be explored in depth and includes areas such as daylight modelling and circadian rhythm analysis, which are of increasing interest to clients.

Interactive in nature, this evening session will include a group exercise focusing on features in the Light concept category.
