WELL v2 and BREEAM – Alignment

WELL v2 is currently in a pilot/test phase. 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. It is anticipated that an updated version of the BREEAM Briefing Paper ‘Assessing Health and Wellbeing in Buildings: Alignment between BREEAM and the WELL Building StandardTM will be published when the final version of WELL v2 is launched. Queries regarding timescales about the final version of WELL v2 and related alignment/‘crosswalk’ documents should be made directly to IWBI (info@wellcertified.com).
