Like other healthy building certification systems on the market, including WELL and BREEAM, Fitwel grades projects on a point scale, awarding more points to those projects that demonstrate the highest levels of attainment. In Fitwel, this translates to points awarded by strength of the evidence and impacts across seven Health Impact Categories (HICs). Unlike other systems, the evidence base for Fitwel’s strategies is in the most rigorous public health research available. Below are some features that show how Fitwel differs from other healthy building systems:
- Its simplicity makes it approachable and accessible for first-time users and does not require any advanced knowledge or skill set to begin.
- With only a $500 registration fee per project, compared to competitors, Fitwel offers an affordable entry point for companies seeking to take the first steps towards certification. See our pricing structure at https://www.fitwel.org/certification.
- Additionally, Fitwel offers discounts for companies to register and certify at scale. Find out more about registering and certifying at scale by visiting https://www.fitwel.org/champions/.
