McBains has added BREEAM International and WELL assessment provision to its portfolio of sustainability services.
Established by the WELL Building Institute in 2014, the WELL Building Standard is the first building certification process to focus exclusively on a building’s impact on people. It aims to influence building design, construction and management in order to improve the health and well-being of users / occupiers and ultimately their productivity.
Based on evidence-based research, the WELL certification process measures a building’s impact on health and well-being under the seven subject areas of air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.
The WELL accreditation programme is administered through a collaboration with the US’s Green Building Institute, which also manages the LEED programme.
As a relatively new certification process originating in the U.S., there are currently very few buildings accredited under WELL in the UK but the number is likely to increase significantly as developers and owners give greater focus to this subject area.
With BREEAM International accredited professionals, McBains is able to offer BREEAM assessments of residential and commercial buildings worldwide.
If you would like to find out more about the BREEAM International accreditation process please speak to Tim Pegg or to find out more about the WELL Building Standard please contact Lucila Porthe on 020 7786 7900.
