WELL Building Standard


Finally, itís all about the PEOPLE!! The new WELL Building standard is the world's first building standard focused exclusively on HUMAN HEALTH and WELLNESS. Something that has been a crucial missing element from our energy dominate code restrictions of ASHRAE and LEED. It is the first performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and wellbeing, through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind.

Weíre excited to be hosting this event at Otus Supply, The New American restaurant with great food and amazing ambiance in fabulous Ferndale. If you havenít been there yet, now is a great time to check it out!
