Kaiterra joins a list of world-class industry leaders and experts in developing the recently announced WELL Performance Rating. Companies like Honeywell, Carrier, Johnson Controls, Schneider Electric, SGS, Trane Technologies, Kaiterra, and more collaborated with the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) to create and launch this new rating, which focuses on utilizing verified metrics to evaluate healthy buildings.
What is the WELL Performance Rating?
The WELL Performance Rating is a new designation offered by IWBI to recognize building owners and operators for using measurable, verified building metrics to assess the health and well-being of building occupants and applying these metrics to enhance the conditions of their spaces. The new rating draws from existing WELL features and new pathways and beta features informed by WELL Performance Testing Organizations (PTO), the IWBI Performance Advisory, as well as many smart building industry leaders.
Because the WELL Performance Rating includes many thresholds from the WELL Building Standard relating to air and water quality, lighting, acoustics, thermal comfort, and more, projects can use the WELL Performance Rating as a stand-alone certification or as a stepping stone to a full WELL certification.
