WELL Education & Training Series
Join Green Building Alliance for three options to learn more about WELL and other human-centered rating systems. You can choose to attend one or all three of these events, although the Introduction to WELL training is a pre-requisite for the WELL AP Exam Prep training.
Join Green Building Alliance and a group of experts and stakeholders to investigate how green building frameworks and rating systems can further support a return to work, school, and life after COVID-19. With a renewed appreciation for health in the built environment, employees and owners alike are seeking confirmation that the spaces they spend time in can proactively support health in the long-term. At this event, we’ll learn about key components of the following systems:
About Our Speakers
Pete Jefferson and Dannie Dilonno from BranchPattern will share details about WELL, Fitwel, Arc and RESET while GBA’s Leslie Montgomery will share details about LEED’s Safety First Pilot Credits. Phyllis Barber from Highmark Health will share her company’s experiences in pursuing both the WELL and WELL Health & Safety certifications.
Pete Jefferson, BranchPattern
Pete brings a whole-systems perspective and a deep knowledge of ecological design to his project teams to achieve high-performance buildings. He uses his background in mechanical engineering to look at the building as an integrated system, where climate, architecture and systems must work harmoniously to yield the best outcomes for his clients and for the people who occupy his buildings. As a Principal at BranchPattern, he has been actively involved in helping organizations deliver healthy, high-performance buildings for over 20 years through design, commissioning, and monitoring of building performance. Most recently he has been busy working with organizations to address the COVID-19 pandemic through indoor environmental quality projects, as well as developing research-based tools to assist in these efforts.
Dannie Dilonno, BranchPattern
Dannie is a passionate advocate of net-zero energy and carbon-neutral buildings. Committed to advancing the energy and environmental performance of buildings, she works with project teams to define aggressive but measurable goals early in the process. She is excited about the connection of occupant’s health and wellness within the built environment and works with owners and design teams to understand the research behind that connection and advance ambitious health and wellness goals during the design and construction of buildings.
Following this event, participants can also join GBA for a more in-depth introduction to the WELL rating system, as well as an 8-hour WELL AP training to build their expertise and prepare for the credentialing exam.
