Minnesota and Wisconsin— (February 13, 2017)
Becky Alexander, AIA 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.
“Attaining the WELL credential exemplifies Becky’s dedication to sustainable design and to improving wellness for our clients and the occupants in their facilities. Her commitment to improving the built environment is exactly what LHB values and what our clients expect,” noted LHB’s Integrative Design Team Leader, Rick Carter, FAIA, LEED Fellow.
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 Standard (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. United Properties and LHB have recently registered the very first WELL building in Minnesota, the Nordic House, an office building and residential project in the North Loop of Minneapolis.
Becky is an architect and researcher at LHB where she provides a combination of architectural design and performance services. Becky plays a key role in several significant state-wide initiatives to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in Minnesota, including the Regional Indicators Initiative and Minnesota’s B3 and SB 2030 programs. Becky’s design and research is supported by a Bachelor of Arts from Carleton College and a Master of Architecture and Master of Science in Architecture – Sustainable Design from the University of Minnesota.
