Lighting manufacturer Focal Point LLC, Chicago, which concentrates on human-centric lighting and acoustic products, has expanded its website to offer visitors a host of information on the WELL Building Standard, an international standard focused on human health and wellness.
The WELL Building Standard, administered by the International Well Building Institute (IWBI), is becoming an important standard for buildings, interior spaces, and communities seeking to implement, validate and measure features that support and advance human health and wellness. WELL is part of a larger movement in architecture that seeks to create buildings that are not only sustainable but better for the humans that occupy them.
“Now more than ever, designers are creating more human-centric environments and lighting is extending beyond just luminaires. We are committed to providing the architecture and design community the tools to enhance architecture and elevate the human spirit,” said Mike Thornton, CMO for Focal Point, in a release.
The web page includes an easy to navigate menu that allows users to compare WELL v1 and WELL v2 pilot, both currently available for project registration, an overview of features related to lighting and sound management for both versions, and resources for product compliance that support the achievement of the features.
Focal Point has established an internal team of experts to support customer inquiries related to the WELL standards.
