The WELL Building Standard was launched by design agency Delos in 2014 by founder Paul Scialla to improve the way people live by developing spaces that enhance occupant health and quality of life by sharing WELL globally.
Provides the greatest benefit to the greatest number of people, inclusive of all demographic and economic groups and with special consideration of groups of the least advantage or vulnerable populations.
Proposes interventions that are feasible, achievable and relevant across many applications throughout the world.
Undergirded by strong, validated research yielding conclusions that can reasonably be expected to receive acceptance by the scientific community.
Draws upon industry best practices and proven strategies, offering consistency in findings across the relevant field or discipline.
Defines program requirements through a dynamic process, with multiple opportunities for stakeholder engagement, and by tapping the expertise of established leaders in science, medicine, business, design and operations.
Responds to advances in scientific knowledge and technology, continuously adapting and integrating new findings in the field.
There are ten concepts in WELL v2: Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind and Community.
Prolojik’s network solutions can contribute significantly in attaining an enhanced score. We have reviewed the latest standards and prepared the following table detailing specific benefits against the WELL v2 assessment criteria. The compliance below is with reference to the Q4 2019 guidelines.
Prolojik PS632 and other DALI sensors can monitor CO2 within the space to an accuracy of 50ppm and VOC - accuracy 25% at 500 μg/m³ Also, report this data in real time to both our Perspective supervisory software and via integration to building management systems or Cloud via MQTT.
Prolojik’s Modular, Plexus and Indigo systems both support circadian lighting control supporting both dual driver and DT8 drivers. Our Perspective software allows for setting, sequencing and scheduling of circadian cycles. Our PS432 sensors have been designed with custom filters for monitoring and tuneable white LED fixtures.
Prolojik sensors and software support daylight regulation and constant luminance. Variable fade rates, scene control and setback modes aid visual balance of the artificial lighting.
Part 1 Colour Rendering: Support for tuneable white via DT8 and DMX lighting provides flexible control of colour rendering of artificial lighting.
Part 1 Enhance Occupant Controllability: Prolojik provides a verity of user control options from scene panels, switch interfaces, Mobile App and web API.
Prolojik’s Proxima sensor system supports enhanced user experiences by providing Location Based-Services (LBS). Sensors can send internal GPS information to users as well as user, time and location specific messaging to enhance the user experience of the space.
Part 2 Monitor Thermal Parameters: Prolojik sensors, scene panels and interfaces monitor temperature at 0.5oC resolution or better in real time allowing direct visualisation on the supervisory system or transfer to a building management system.
Part 1 Thermal Control: As detailed in T03 compliance, the granularity of temperature data to less than 5m2 provides detailed zonal thermal data for monitoring and control.
All Prolojik manufacturing since 2008 has been Lead Free.
All Prolojik manufacturing since 2003 has been Directive 2002/95/EC RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.
The WELLBuilding Standard is the world’s first building standard focused exclusively on human health and wellness. The standards are administered by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), an American public benefit corporation, third-party certified by Green Business Certification, the same group that administers LEED certification. LEED is primarily concerned with responsibly sourcing materials and promoting sustainable building practices. WELL is about the effect of the environment on the individual, both physiologically and psychologically.
The WELL Building Standard is an evidence-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring the performance of building features that impact health and well-being. It was initially launched to improve the way people live by developing spaces that enhance workers health and quality of life. The first edition of the standard set performance requirements in seven concepts relevant to occupant health in the built environment – air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. All these concepts are based on medical research concerning how environments affect human health.
The WELL v2™ pilot is the next version of the pioneering WELL Building Standard™, the first rating system to focus exclusively on the impacts of buildings on human health and wellness.
