What’s the Deal with the Seal: Explaining the WELL Health-Safety Rating

What if you could know if a building was healthy and safe before stepping inside? With never a more critical time to focus on health, that’s exactly the intent of the new WELL Health-Safety Rating.

An evidence-based designation, backed by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), this annual rating verifies that a building or space has taken the necessary steps to prioritize the health and safety of those who come through its doors – whether employees, students, patients, shoppers/customers, visitors or others. Achieving the WELL Health-Safety Rating makes our shared spaces safer, giving us all confidence in re-opening our businesses and communities.

As early adopters of the WELL building movement, along with our experience implementing WELL in our own offices (such as Charlotte and Orlando), Little knows how to make your pursuit of the WELL Health-Safety Rating efficient so you can get back to business. We’ll ask the right questions, listen to understand your goals, and leverage our expertise to align the appropriate features for you.
