Senior Associate, Stephen Bickell, has earned the WELL Accredited Professional credential through the International WELL Building InstituteTM (IWBITM), placing him 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 specialisation 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.

Anne Johnstone, head of Environment, Energy and Sustainability, said: “Stephen has been a valued part of the energy and sustainability team at Malcolm Hollis since 2015, his expertise and passion towards the service makes him a valued contributor to our work. The latest news that Stephen has earned his WELL Accredited Professional status is fantastic and will support our efforts to provide clients with the most informed and valuable information.”

By endorsing and actively participating in leading systems, such as the WELL Accreditation, we are displaying clear efforts to help clients to better create value in the business of sustainability and innovate a more complete suite of sustainability and energy solutions that will deliver throughout a building’s lifecycle.

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.
