Paul Scialla shares his insights about the “WELL” building and the growth of adopting WELL building standards across the Asian region.

The next green wave sweeping the building sector is wellness for the building tenants. Marrying health and wellness with design, the WELL building standards is just starting to take off in Asia. In terms of features, it is quite a bit of an alignment with green buildings, except WELL focuses more on the people instead of the environment. WELL is composed of many features that are applied to many building projects and each WELL feature is designed to address issues that impact health, comfort and support for making positive lifestyle choices.
