MAZZETTI DESIGNER SETH FRANCIS EARNS WELL ACCREDITED PROFESSIONAL (WELL AP) CREDENTIAL
PORTLAND (August 20, 2018) – Seth Francis, EIT, LEED Green Associate, Mechanical Designer with Mazzetti, global MEP and Technology Consulting firm, has earned the WELL Accredited Professional (WELL APTM) credential through the International WELL Building InstituteTM (IWBITM). This accreditation places Seth among a limited group of leading professionals, dedicated to supporting human health and well-being in the built environment.
“Becoming a WELL AP was important to me as I truly believe we need to place humans at the center of all building design approaches. I am proud that Mazzetti can meet our clients’ goals, delivering a higher level of health and wellness to their buildings.”
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 Seth’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.
