I am only pursuing WELL Certification for a portion of our office. Do I need to consider all regular building occupants for the entire space within this WELL feature's scope in order to comply?
All employees within the project boundary would need to be counted as part of this feature's scope.
Projects that are operated as a co-working space should pursue the New & Existing Interiors project type. For this type of project, this feature would apply to all regular building occupants.
All building staff managing and operating the building and/or employed by the project owner and regularly working in the building must have access to these benefits. Additionally, the owner must provide education to tenants related to the benefits and implementation of these requirements.
A scale that measures weight can be counted toward this feature, however, scales must be provided to all occupants (i.e., there cannot be a single shared scale). Scales that are able to measure additional parameters may be able to fulfill this requirement entirely.
Apps are not sensors in their own right but rather ways to interpret data from sensors, and therefore do not qualify for this feature on their own. However, if both the apps and the smartphone were subsidized, then that would be a valid way to fulfill the requirements.
Could you clarify who qualifies as an employee? My organization has temporary workers and I would like to know if they are considered employees for the purposes of WELL Certification.
A worker is considered an employee if they have a regular or predictable schedule, which has (or is intended to) continue for longer than a few months.
