Aircuity, announced its support for the recently launched WELL Performance Rating, a new standard for healthy indoor environments developed by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI). IWBI designed the new rating as a new designation that “uses dynamic human and building performance metrics to enhance the experience of the people inside.”
This endorsement reflects Aircuity’s more than 20 year of experience working to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) through accurate IAQ measurement and control. Aircuity’s approach to improving IAQ centers on the company’s belief in the importance of an independent industry metrics and validation for those environments that ‘step up’ to provide this continuously for building occupants
The WELL Performance Rating consists of features drawn from the WELL Building Standard along with new pathways and beta features that will be informed by the IWBI Performance Advisory, WELL Performance Testing Organizations (PTOs) and a host of industry leaders in smart building technologies.
“Building owners and operators should seek and receive recognition for controlling and managing to measurable and independently validated building metrics; this new IWBI rating provides that independent validation to those working and learning in these environments,” said Dan Diehl, CEO at Aircuity. “We are determined to proliferate healthy and sustainable buildings as a global reality, bringing down life cycle cost of ownership and delivering on the myriad of benefits that quality indoor spaces provide to occupants. This remains a huge opportunity for ubiquitous adoption, and the new WELL Performance Rating takes us one step closer.”
The WELL Performance Rating will be comprised of WELL features and validated by a global network of 42 WELL Performance Testing Organizations, IWBI member organizations and its broader community of over 18,000 WELL Accredited Professionals (WELL APs). The new designation will add to a growing suite of WELL ratings that includes the WELL Health-Safety Rating and the forthcoming WELL Health Equity Rating.
