#24775 - 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.
#25396 - My project does not sell or provide food and beverages on a daily basis. Which Nourishment features are applicable and will contribute to the project's scorecard?
If a project does not sell or provide food and beverages on a daily basis, it is considered in compliance with the Nourishment precondition features 38-40 (and 43-44 when designated as preconditions) and is considered not having achieved optimization features 47-49 (and 43-44 when designated as optimizations). To demonstrate compliance, projects should simply add a note to explain their lack of daily food and beverage offerings within the 'Notes' column of the project checklist.
Note that all Nourishment optimizations will still appear on the project scorecard and contribute to the denominator when calculating scoring.
Yes - a restaurant, cafe, or canteen located within the building may count as an eating area if it is open to all building occupants. In other words, building occupants should be able to use the tables and chairs in the eating area at any time, regardless of whether they purchased food at the canteen, cafe, or restaurant. This applies even when the canteen, cafe, or restaurant are not included in the WELL project boundary as long as they are within the building or within 200 m [650 ft] of the building entrance.
