The WELL Building Standard™ provides the opportunity to design and build with human-centered approach, and it is rapidly becoming one of the main standards in this industry all over the world. It combines best practices in design and construction with evidence-based medical and scientific research-harnessing buildings as vehicles to support human health and well-being. WELL is an independently verified, performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of buildings that impact human health and well-being.

And in order to spread the word about benefits of WELL, Energo is organizing WELL courses all over Europe. These courses are developed and updated by International WELL Building Institute and U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and Energo is an official Education Partner and provider of these courses.

These courses are designed for professionals who want to prepare for the WELL exam, maintain their credential and expand their knowledge of WELL, and for enthusiasts who are interested in positively impacting human health through building design.

Another great thing about WELL Standard is that it complements and works seamlessly with other green building rating systems, such as LEED® and BREEAM®.
