Health and Wellbeing in Green Building
July 10, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Wellness in buildings is shown to improve productivity, reduce missed days due to illness, and support overall occupant wellbeing. Green building rating systems and building codes are now incorporating wellness features to support occupant wellness.
This presentation explores the importance of wellness in buildings and looks at wellness criteria in building programs including LEED and Fitwel. Attendees will learn strategies for incorporating wellness into their green building projects. The speaker will touch upon ASHRAE 189.1, IgCC, and CALGreen in terms of where health and wellbeing is integrated into these sustainable building codes.
- Understand how health and wellbeing is being defined today in sustainable building.
- Identify WELL features that align with LEED v4s focus on human health & wellbeing for example WELL feature 04 VOC reduction aligns with EQc Low Emitting Materials.
- Identify LEED v4 credits that align with WELLs focus on human health & wellbeing for example MRc Building Product Disclosure and Optimization: Material Ingredients Option 1 aligns with WELL feature 97.
- Understand the crosswalk documentation which will help them implement specification decisions for both LEED v4 EBOM and WELL such as Green Cleaning Policy (P) & Green Cleaning – Products & Materials and Feature 9 Cleaning Protocol.
