Join IWBI at the 2015 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo

Last year Greenbuild saw the launch of the WELL Building Standard, which is administered by IWBI and certified by GBCI. This year, IWBI is excited to showcase an enhanced version of WELL v1; pilot programs for new market sectors including retail, multifamily residential, education, restaurant and commercial kitchen projects; and the new WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP) credential. (For questions related to the WELL AP program: WELLAP@wellcertified.com. ) Also available to preview at Greenbuild will be WELLographies™, supplemental scientific and medical research-based documents created as digital publications with interactive charts and graphics. WELLographies are in development for materials and each of WELL’s seven Concepts – air, water, light, nourishment, fitness, comfort (thermal and acoustic) and mind. Visit us at the USGBC booth on the Expo Floor to learn more. See the list below for additional health and wellness opportunities at Greenbuild, including WELL Workshops on November 16-17, a curated Special Set: Illuminate track of educational sessions (A05-H05), Meet the Experts technical sessions at the Certification Workzone, tours and other featured events.
