This is a recording of a San Francisco Bay Area Chapter webinar, held on March 22, 2018. WELL is somehow advertised as a standard with a minimum simulation requirement, however there is a strong need for simulation tools in many categories viz. Air, Light and Comfort; and moving forward these needs will gradually emerge.
