If you haven’t used the WELL Building Standard because it seemed too difficult or too expensive, it might be time to give this relatively new rating system another look. And if you were just getting used to the requirements of WELL, hold on to your hat: the newly introduced version 2 is a major overhaul.

Released in May of 2018, WELL v2 is a pilot, meaning v1 is still considered the current version. However, new projects can already register under v2—and those registered under v1 can upgrade at no cost.
