The two organisations will work closely to identify specific credits between the two standards which can be mutually recognised in order to facilitate the achievement of both WELL and BREEAM certifications.
BREEAM and WELL are both evidence-based systems used to measure buildings’ environmental and sustainability performances.
explained Rick Fedrizzi, chairman and CEO, IWBI.
The partnership follows the increasing interest of the building industry in the impact of building on the health and wellbeing of its occupants.
Initial outcome of the collaboration is expected by January 2017.
