Leading research demonstrates that the way our buildings are designed, constructed and maintained has a profound impact on how we live. When we design our buildings, we define how we sleep, what we eat and how we feel throughout the day. ASID is dedicated to leading the conversation on integrating health and wellness in the built environment.
Learn to leverage your design talents to foster healthier lives by becoming a WELL AP. The WELL AP credential denotes your commitment to advancing human health and wellness in buildings and communities. The WELL AP exam was developed by a diverse network of subject matter experts dedicated to advancing health and well-being in buildings and communities across the world.
