WELL Building Certification

En3 is working with over 25 million sq ft of projects under the “Well Building Rating” which focuses on the health and wellness aspects of buildings.

WELL is a performance based standard, in most cases, specific, measurable thresholds are provided that must be met.

It covers 10 sections including Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind and Community and has several measures that need to be implemented in design and construction in all these areas to qualify for a WELL certification. The WELL certification will also be awarded by the Green Business Certification Institute (GBCI) the same agency that certifies LEED as well.

Also the WELL rating requires an independent third-party performance testing and verification to be done on site and samples of air, water etc. shall be taken and sent to an independent lab for verification. Only after the project clears the Performance testing will it qualify for the WELL certification

Our various services for the WELL Building Rating include:
