Eight Associates to offer WELL Performance Testing for projects pursuing the WELL Building Standard

7th December 2019

Eight Associates is proud to announce that as a WELL Performance Testing Organisation, it will now offer performance testing services to projects pursuing WELL Certification. In addition, Eight Associates will leverage its expertise to help organisations, developers and building owners understand how their spaces are performing and the impact on occupant health and well-being.

WELL Performance Testing Organisations provide performance testing services to WELL v2 projects. Overall, performance testing includes the evaluation of 67 distinct performance indicators while on the project site, requiring over 20 types of tests to be performed and using 10 or more types of equipment.

Eight Associates has 2 accredited WELL Performance Testing Agents as well as an experienced support team, placing it amongst a group of leading professionals who are dedicated to supporting human health and well-being in the built environment.

” We are delighted to be recognised as an approved WELL Performance Testing Organisation and look forward to using our existing Indoor Environmental Quality testing experience to help WELL projects become certified. We believe there is significant potential for the WELL Building Standard to drive change in the way we design buildings for human health, we are proud to be a part of that process, especially being able to provide expert and robust verification for our industry peers.”…..Chris Hocknell, Director

The WELL Building Standard is focused exclusively on the ways that buildings and communities, and everything in them, can improve our comfort, drive better choices, and generally enhance, not compromise, our health and wellness. Performance verification ensures that the space is not only designed for health, but that it is actually performing as intended.
