Steven Winter Associates Joins IWBI as a Cornerstone Member
Steven Winter Associates, Inc. (SWA) announced its involvement in the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) membership program as a Cornerstone Member. SWA is excited to join like-minded companies from across the globe that are committed to enhancing buildings and communities to help people thrive.
The membership program at IWBI convenes, celebrates and fosters collaboration with companies and organizations who are leading the movement to advance human health in buildings and communities around the world. By becoming a member, SWA solidifies its commitment to IWBI’s mission and to its overarching goal of improving the built environment.
“Our membership will allow us to tap into IWBI’s expansive resources, allowing us to better serve our clients who wish to pursue the WELL Building Standard™.” said Maureen Mahle, SWA’s Managing Director of Sustainable Housing Services. “We look forward to being at the forefront of WELL’s expansion into the industry.”
SWA has been involved with IWBI and the WELL Building Standard since its launch in 2014. As the standard continues to build momentum, a growing number of staff are pursuing and earning their WELL AP credential, enabling SWA to increase its capacity for WELL projects.
SWA intends to leverage the membership benefits associated with IWBI, which include opportunities for continuing education, industry collaboration, and discounts on WELL products and fees. Additionally, SWA will have access to market updates and quarterly briefings that provide insight into developments at IWBI and the industry at large.
The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) is leading the global movement to transform our buildings and communities in ways that help people thrive. The WELL v2 pilot is the recently launched version of its popular WELL Building Standard, which will continue to be offered to the market, along with the WELL Community Standard pilot, a district scale rating system that sets a new global benchmark for healthy communities. WELL is focused exclusively on the ways that buildings and communities, and everything in them, can improve our comfort, drive better choices, and generally enhance, not compromise, our health and wellness. IWBI convenes and mobilizes the wellness community through management of the WELL AP credential, the pursuit of applicable research, the development of educational resources, and advocacy for policies that promote health and wellness everywhere.
