What is WELL Building & the WELL AP Credential?
The WELL Building has over a hundred features divided into the following seven concepts: air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind. As a WELL AP you can show the world that you understand what it takes to design, build, and operate healthy buildings. Save time and let us help you become a WELL AP with our exam prep materials!
McKinsey & Company predicts “Wellness is the next trillion dollar industry as employers invest in healthy living programs and as customers take more responsibility for optimizing their own health.”

Will it Last?
We believe that the WELL Building Standard will become mainstream for three main reasons:
- People spend about 90% of their time indoors
- Companies spend about 90% of their capital on their people
- The WELL Building Standard provides guidelines to make people happier, healthier, and more productive
Investors Love WELL
Most of the ROI for a WELL Building for a developer will come from a combination of Marketing (early adopter and leasing with tenants) and attracting future investors. But, one overlooked benefit is the additional “commissioning” and verification of systems performance and follow-ups which will reduce warranty calls and really make sure systems are working as designed.
