CHICAGO — Focal Point is taking a human-centric approach to lighting, going beyond illumination and providing solutions for commercial environments to improve human health and well-being.
Recent examples of Focal Point’s commitment were the introduction of Acoustic Solutions and Preferred Light, which respectively allow specifiers to resolve sound reverberation issues and design with a light quality that humans prefer. The organization is now expanding their offering by providing customers resources to support their projects with a new section on their website dedicated to the WELL Building Standard™ (WELL).
The WELL Building Standard, administered by the International Well Building Institute (IWBI) is globally recognized. It has become the premier standard for buildings, interior spaces, and communities seeking to implement, validate and measure features that support and advance human health and wellness. WELL is part of a larger movement in architecture which goal is to create buildings that are not only sustainable but better for the humans that occupy them.
“Now more than ever, designers are creating more human-centric environments and lighting is extending beyond just luminaires. We are committed to providing the architecture and design community the tools to enhance architecture and elevate the human spirit,” stated Mike Thornton, Chief Marketing Officer for Focal Point, LLC.
The web page includes an easy to navigate menu that allows users to compare WELL v1 and WELL v2 pilot, both currently available for project registration, an overview of the Features related to lighting and sound management for both versions, and resources for product compliance that support the achievement of the Features.
In addition, Focal Point has established an internal team of experts to support customer inquiries related to WELL. To connect with them, visit the WELL Building Standard™ web page and use the Contact Us link.Tagged with Focal Point, human-centric lighting
