Scoring and Certification levels

WELL Core Certification verifies the performance of the building, and communicates to tenants that it is committed to partnering with them in creating a healthy environment for employees. WELL Core Certification provides a strong basis of design and performance that makes it easier for tenants to further pursue WELL Certification for their fitouts. By building upon the attributes of a WELL Certified™ base building, tenants can then add wellness-focused elements.
