"The fact is that you can’t manage what you don’t measure, and we need to measure the performance of our buildings to understand them and improve them," said Jack Noonan, vice president, Commercial, APAC Region, International WELL Building Institute. “As an industry, we have seen more and more examples of poor performing new buildings, and our competitive and solutions-focused community sought to fix the problem,” he said.
