Shannon Bunsen, Sustainability Project Manager, has earned the WELL Accredited Professional (WELL APTM) credential through the International WELL Building InstituteTM (IWBITM). This accreditation places Shannon among a limited group of leading professionals, dedicated to supporting human health and well-being in the built environment.
“I identify with being a caretaker of people and a lover of the outdoors. WELL empowers me with a holistic framework of guiding principles. When applied to a space, the health and wellbeing of everyone inside improves, while leveraging the benefits of ‘everything outside’.”
Shannon is excited to apply this knowledge to every space she’s able, starting with Mazzetti’s own offices.
The WELL AP credential is the new, leading credential, signifying advanced knowledge of health and well-being in the built environment and specialization in the WELL Building StandardTM (WELL). 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.
As a Benefit Corporation, Mazzetti is committed to driving public benefit both for society and the environment. Having recently completed the MEP design for the 1st West Coast LEED Platinum Children’s Hospital, Stanford’s Packard Children’s, Mazzetti has demonstrated sustainable design excellence throughout its 50+ year history. With Shannon’s new accreditation, Mazzetti can further incorporate WELL expertise into existing sustainability consulting services, while influencing a higher level of health and wellness in all Mazzetti projects. For our clients, this equates to more robust guidance towards achieving healthier building goals, delivering the systems design, operations, and maintenance procedures to realize these goals.
