Dr Colin Beattie now JRA’s in-house WELL AP

Congratulations to Dr Colin Beattie who has qualified as a WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP) after successfully passing the exam through the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI). The WELL AP was established in 2016 and is a leading credential among professionals, signifying advanced knowledge and dedication to supporting health and well-being in the built environment and specialisation in the WELL Building Standard.

The WELL Building Standard is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and wellbeing, through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.

Within the studio our design is always based on best practice principles so having a strong understanding of the WELL concepts and importantly, what the intended outcomes are from having a WELL certified building, is extremely significant. It also helps us reinforce with our clients the importance of WELL related concepts regardless of whether the project is seeking certification.  The scientific findings around human health and wellbeing (the basis of WELL) are hard to argue with!
