The World Health Organization defines health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. Consequently, its expected from a “Healthy Building” to support and promote the well-being of its occupants while operating in an efficient and sustainable manner.
In this webinar, we will provide an introduction into two wellness real estate / healthy building standards: WELL and Fitwel. This truly is the next chapter in the green building movement. Is your building ready? Who are the early adopters? What are the hurdles so far? What does it cost? What is your next step? We’ll cover all of that and more in this session.
