Navigating Health and Wellness Standards
May 16, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm$35 – $45
About this Event
While improved human health has long been an underlying premise of sustainable building, new standards like WELL center design around the human experience. At this event, we’ll explore industry trends, building standards like Fitwel and RESET, and credits within broader rating systems including LEED, Living Building Challenge, and Passive House.
This event includes networking as well as refreshments. If you are working on a limited budget, please contact Leslie Montgomery for scholarship opportunities.
About Our Speaker
Stuart Shell, AIA, EDAC, WELL AP, LEED AP BD+C, FITWEL AMBASSADOR
Stuart works with an interdisciplinary team at BranchPattern to create building solutions that place people first. As an architect-turned-researcher, he focuses on what occupants need to be healthy and engaged. That takes Stuart into the world of physiology, psychology, facade optimization for comfort, and natural systems. His work at BranchPattern is rooted in nature which has taught us that true sustainability sits at the intersection of human experience and environmental stewardship.
