WELL for a healthy working environment

WELL Building with DGMR

WELL Building

Do you want to ensure that your building is healthy? The WELL Building Standard is a powerful tool for creating a healthy work environment, with the purpose of stimulating the health and productivity of those who work there.

WELL advisory service

DGMR’s WELL Accredited Professionals (APs) provide advice to customers about the ways in which they can achieve healthy buildings. The sooner they become involved in your plans, the better will they be able to achieve a match with your requirements. Our Accredited Professionals carry out a gap analysis to map out your situation and then advise you about the actions which will lead to WELL.

Process guidance

The WELL process includes 11 themes aimed at stimulating health within buildings: air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, thermal comfort, sound, materials, mind, community and innovation. Our WELL APs work with customers to successfully meet their WELL requirements; their knowledge of your building enables them to work towards the certificate.


WELL Building with water and stairsDGMR is the first bureau in Europe to have been certified as a WELL Performance Testing Organization by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI). Our WELL Performance Testing Agents perform assessments on behalf of GBCI to establish how effectively the envisaged safety measures will operate in practice; the burden of proof for the eventual WELL Performance Verification of your building.

Healthy Building Index Tool

The Healthy Building Index tool already showed how satisfied employees are with the indoor environment and ergonomics in their building. The new WELL module also captures ratings for food, exercise, water, health policy, cleaning and building design. IWBI approved the HBI tool for independent review for WELL certification.

WELL Health-Safety Rating

Use buildings for the safety of people. Taking measures for the health and safety of employees, visitors, students and supporters in times of a pandemic, such as COVID-19. The WELL Health-Safety Rating aims to value the efforts of building owners and landlords. As in a full WELL process, DGMR also guides clients to successfully implement these WELL requirements.
