The WELL Building Standard (WELL) is the premier standard for buildings, interior spaces and communities seeking to implement, validate and measure features that support and advance human health and wellness. WELL was developed by integrating scientific and medical research and literature on environmental health, behavioural factors, health outcomes and demographic risk factors that affect health with leading practices in building design, construction and management.
Mona Holtkötter from IWBI will share emerging innovations and evidence- based research about how we can design buildings specifically to support the health and well-being of the people who live, work and learn in them. She will also touch on IWBI's current developments and initiatives in relation to Covid-19.
Based in Dublin, Mona Holtkötter is a Manager on the Market Solutions team, supporting project teams and clients looking to promote health and well-being in the European market.
