The WELL Building Standard uses the sustainable built environment as a vehicle to support human health, well-being and comfort. It fuses best practices in design and construction with evidence-based health wellness and biophilic interventions. This allows the design of spaces that help improve the nutrition, physical fitness, mood, sleep, comfort, performance and safety of its occupants, achieved in part by implementing strategies to promote safer lifestyles and reducing the exposure of the occupants. occupants to harmful situations.

The technological integration of lighting with other project areas provides an additional action plan to obtain higher scores towards certification and provides the opportunity for bio-disinfection protocols for COVID19.
