Jeni Cross has been selected by the International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) to be part of the 2018-2019 WELL Community advisory. Cross joins a select group of leading industry professionals who will guide the continuous evolution of concepts in the WELL Building Standard™ (WELL™), the premier building rating system focusing exclusively on the impacts of buildings on human health and wellness.
The nine WELL concept advisories – Air and Thermal Comfort, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Sound, Materials, Mind and Community – align with the 10 WELL concepts introduced in the WELL v2™ pilot. WELL concept advisories consist of leading global subject matter experts, practitioners and users across the fields of public health, design, building and medical science.
Advisors will work with the IWBI Standard Development team throughout the year to help ensure that WELL continues to align with the latest industry research, meets user needs and raises the bar for healthy, high-performing buildings around the world.
The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) is leading the global movement to transform our buildings and communities in ways that help people thrive. The WELL v2 pilot is the recently launched version of its popular WELL Building Standard, which will continue to be offered to the market, along with the WELL Community Standard pilot, a district scale rating system that sets a new global benchmark for healthy communities. WELL is focused exclusively on the ways that buildings and communities, and everything in them, can improve our comfort, drive better choices, and generally enhance, not compromise, our health and wellness. IWBI convenes and mobilizes the wellness community through management of the WELL AP credential, the pursuit of applicable research, the development of educational resources, and advocacy for policies that promote health and wellness everywhere.
