WELL Accredited Professionals

Delta-Simons is working with the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) and BRE to introduce the WELL Building Standard into industrial buildings, through a core and shell pilot study.

The WELL Building Standard™ (WELL™) is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact the health and well-being of the people who live, work and learn in the buildings. WELL focuses on seven categories of building performance (referred to as Concepts): air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. Pioneered by Delos, the WELL Building Standard is grounded in evidence-based medical research that demonstrates the connection between the buildings where we spend more than 90% of our time and health and wellness impacts on us as occupants.

Managing Director, Alex Ferguson, and Technical Director, Roger Griffiths, are WELL Accredited Professionals – a leading credential that signifies advanced knowledge of health and wellbeing in the built environment and specialisation in the WELL building standard.

Services we offer

WELL Building Standard assessment and advice

The WELL Building Standard is currently optimised for commercial and institutional buildings and can be applied to three project typologies:

  • New and existing building
  • New and existing interiors
  • Core and shell

Delta-Simons can provide WELL AP advice for development teams to assess and monitor the health and wellbeing of the internal environment in line with the WELL Standard, providing health and wellbeing policies for businesses and support in the development of EHS strategies.

Delta-Simons is currently working with Chetwoods Architects and KTA to support Baytree Logisitics Properties in delivering a major new industrial sector project in the UK, which will not only achieve BREEAM Excellent and EPC "A" ratings, but will also be registered to pursue core and shell WELL Building Standard certification.  Read full article.
