Mona Holtkötter has recently joined the International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™), which is leading the movement to improve human health and well-being in buildings and communities across the world through its WELL Building Standard™ (WELL™) and WELL Community Standard™. Mona has joined the European team at IWBI to provide technical solutions for projects aiming to achieve WELL Certification.
Coming from a building services background, Mona’s focus is to integrate new health-focused design strategies with existing sustainable design practices to arrive at a holistic approach that is good for people and our planet. As one of Ireland’s first WELL APs, Mona has worked on numerous WELL projects, bringing sustainability and healthy building design under one umbrella.
WELL focuses on seven categories of building performance: air, water, nourishment, light, comfort, fitness and mind. It is grounded in evidence-based research that demonstrates the connection between the buildings where people spend approximately 90% of their time and those buildings’ health and wellness impacts on those who use them. The WELL Community Standard is a district-scale rating system that takes into account the interconnectivity between buildings and their surroundings and the overall impact on human health.
