WELL vs Fitwel

Boston, MA

Members Only

Two major third-party rating systems have emerged to tackle human health and wellness in the built environment, but how are you supposed to know which one will work best for your project or your client? Whether you’re thinking about tools to build confidence back to returning to the workplace, retail establishments or stadiums we’ll unpack the WELL Building Standard alongside Fitwel and their respective certifications developed post-COVID-19.

Join us as we hear from Emily Reese Moody with Jacobs and Jennifer Taranto with Structure Tone. You’ll get a basic understanding of how these two healthy building rating systems evolved, core differences, and a few real world examples.

Jennifer Taranto ensures the principals of sustainability and wellbeing are incorporated into client projects and everyday work practices throughout the STO Building Group. Jenn is a passionate advocate for reducing environmental impact of the built environment and enabling organizations to improve people’s health and wellbeing while reducing the construction and operating costs of facilities. As a founder of Built Environment Plus (formerly USGBC Massachusetts) and the current vice-chair she is recognized as a leader in the sustainable built environment. She gets involved in the early stages of client projects to define the needs and the overall sustainability goals to create an internal road map to team success.

Emily Reese Moody serves as Jacobs’ Sustainability Director for Certifications & Compliance in the People, Places and Solutions group, providing leadership, expertise, and project coordination for all aspects of sustainability in the built environment. Her experience includes work on over 100 different projects utilizing third-party certifications programs including LEED, WELL, Fitwel, Envision, Parksmart, and Guiding Principles Compliance. She has served as the certification administrator for over 8 million square feet of registered projects. Emily additionally helps integrate sustainability aspects into projects not utilizing certification programs in order to meet client goals, and city, state, and Federal requirements. Emily’s objective is to help others associate sustainability and well-being with everyday project logic in order to realize the necessity of inclusion as standard practice rather than as a specialty service.
