WELL v2 and BREEAM – Alignment

WELL v2 is currently in a pilot/test phase. The current plan is to update the BREEAM Briefing Paper ‘Assessing Health and Wellbeing in Buildings: Alignment between BREEAM and the WELL Building StandardTM  when the final version of WELL v2 is launched, which is likely to be towards the end of 2019. This timing will allow alignment with the forthcoming update to the BREEAM In-Use scheme. In the interim, IWBI has produced a ‘one-way’ alignment document ‘Applying BREEAM and the WELL Building StandardTM – Strategies for interiors, new buildings and existing buildings seeking dual certification’, which shows how BREEAM New Construction scheme credits can contribute to achieving WELL v2 pilot features. The document is available to download from the Resources section of the WELL v2 website.
