Divya Natarajan, senior project manager, and Wenhan Qiu, senior analyst from Paladino and Company have earned the WELL Accredited Professional (WELL APTM) credential through the International WELL Building InstituteTM (IWBITM), placing them among a group of leading professionals who are dedicated to supporting human health and well-being in the built environment.
The WELL AP credential is the new, leading credential signifying advanced knowledge of health and well-being in the built environment and specialization in the WELL Building StandardTM (WELL).
WELL APs have successfully passed the WELL AP exam, an assessment based on the expertise of leading practitioners in the field of design, health and wellness in the built environment. Developed using GBCI’s rigorous test development best practices, the WELL AP exam is designed to test a candidate’s knowledge and proficiency in building wellness and the principles, practices and applications of the WELL Building Standard. The WELL AP Exam was launched last October and was complemented by a comprehensive educational program.
“Divya and Wenhan’s WELL certification is an affirmation of Paladino’s commitment to achieving health and wellness within our green building projects,” said CEO Tom Paladino of Paladino and Company. “Their expertise will help our clients understand how to prioritize the health and well-being of the people inside the buildings through holistic workplace strategies that address human needs first.”
The WELL Building Standard is the first building standard to focus exclusively on the health and wellness of the people in buildings. WELL is an evidence and performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features that impact human health and well-being in the built environment, through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.
