The first question for many may be ‘WHAT EXACTLY IS Wellness Certification’ for buildings?

Wellness Building Certifications were born from the scientifically supported idea that your indoor environment can negatively affect your health outcomes or it can support your health.

In order to promote and encourage healthier building standards, certifications were created. They measure building features like air quality, water quality, light, hygiene, comfort, and the list goes on.

When a building has the systems and protocols in place to meet the requirements, they can earn a “Wellness Certificate”. The certificate is usually posted somewhere highly visible to occupants, residents and visitors.

There are a variety of LEVELS and TYPES of Wellness Building Certifications and excellent companies that provide them including WELL, Fitwel, LEED, RESET and PEER to name a few.

Do Wellness Features Really Work?

LET’S USE ‘The air you breathe’ AS AN EXAMPLE of the power of wellness features and why tenant demand for them is skyrocketing.

Say you’re working in your apartment during the day. You’re going to take about 8,000 breaths.

If the indoor air is stale, carries allergens, pulls wildfire smoke from outside, or if anyone in your apartment has a nasty cold or a virus, it could be a bad day for your immune system.

And if the air ducts in that building carry mold spores, bacteria, or are just dusty, it could get really ugly up in your respiratory system.

Now, imagine the same scenario except all the AIR you breathe is being purified by powerful, effective filters. 8,000 breaths of virus free, pollutant-free, clean air. Much better.

Side Note: Good news! Never in the history of the world have there been so many amazing wellness products to make indoor space healthier.


Now that Wellness Systems have been adopted by real estate sectors like offices, hotels, production home builders and people have become painfully aware of the need for fresh air (top item post Covid!), the demand for wellness systems in the places we live is growing exponentially.

Here are the TOP FIVE REASONS Apartments Need Wellness Certification

1. Residents Prefer It

Residents will choose a building with Wellness Features over a standard building when given the option, 80% of the time. (source: KB home).

2. Market Advantage

The market advantage of a building with a Wellness Certification obliterates the playing field. Buildings without wellness cannot compete with certified buildings when it comes to tenants who value their health. It is such a powerful upgrade and easy choice for a resident that it puts your building into its own league.

3. Wellness is the Standard

Wellness is considered the “New Standard” in building. Get ahead of it. You’ll be in good company. Here are some amazing companies who have integrated wellness features:

4. Wellness Works

From air and water purification to no-smoking areas to air quality monitors, it ALL WORKS to help your residents and staff live healthier lives. Happy residents means low vacancy, higher satisfaction. Great ROI.

5. Shows You Care

Integrating wellness features into the built environment sends a message to your tenants, your staff, and your team that you prioritize their health and well-being. It reduces stress and promotes happiness at your property.
