Design with WELLness in mind

SDG Designer Patrick Allen earns WELL accreditation

We’re excited to share that SDG designer Patrick Allen just became a WELL Accredited Professional through the International WELL Building Institute. The WELL AP credential denotes a commitment to advancing human health and wellness in buildings and communities.

Patrick’s study included a range of interdisciplinary topics, from the impacts of air contaminants on health, to the power of water quality and the link between ergonomics and musculoskeletal disease.

“The big reason I chose to pursue this credential is its focus on the holistic approach to building design centered around the human – compared certifications like LEED, although valuable, have a much broader focus on sustainability of the environment whereas WELL and WELL AP’s consider the who in a project,” Patrick said. “I felt like WELL does a great job of integrating sustainability while keeping human wellness at the forefront.”
