Niagara Health has registered the South Niagara Project with the International WELL Building Institute to work towards becoming WELL® v2 certified.
WELL® certification is based off of 10 concepts.
The acoustical comfort of a space can be quantified by the overall level of satisfaction of an occupant in a given environment. Exposure to noise sources such as traffic and transportation have been shown to hinder the health and well-being of people in a different ways such as sleep disturbance and hypertension. The Sound concept aims to bolster occupant health and well-being through the identification and mitigation of acoustical comfort parameters that shape occupant experience in the built environment.
