Intern architect Natalya Anissimova has earned the WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP™) credential through the International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™), placing her 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 that signifies an advanced knowledge of health and well-being in the built environment and a specialization in the WELL Building Standard™ (WELL).

Designers with this credential 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 October of 2020 and was complemented by a comprehensive educational program.

“We congratulate Natalya on obtaining her WELL AP Credentials. Her knowledge in this area is a great resource for our clients and we appreciate her hard work,” said Brian Maxwell, MHAworks’ President.

The new certification will allow our team to expand our capabilities and offer additional design solutions for our clients’ project needs.

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 including air, water, light, fitness, and comfort.
