How well does your building fit your tenants? Do your employees need a place to walk or work out? This interactive online course introduces the WELL Building Standard and discusses unique "features" (known as “credits” in LEED) to certify projects and gain the credential. We will discuss the application of the WELL standard to a hypothetical case study, conducting a feature-by-feature analysis and comparing the building before and after the standard is applied.

Blake works to review and test the knowledge in application over a large body of information. He sparks interest and hopefully will continue teaching. He doesn't just provide answers that can be referenced. Active thinking is required. Connectivity between LEED v4 and the Living Building Challenge are very apparent with his methodology. Hopefully he's teaching WELL v2 and beyond and bring some others forward on the same wide and narrow angle focus that we need as students and as practitioners. This learning is lifelong and continuous.
