CBRE’s Frederic de Loizaga Earns WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP™) Credential
Frederic de Loizaga, a first vice president with CBRE’s Denver office, has earned the WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP TM ) credential through the International WELL Building Institute TM (IWBI TM ), placing him among a group of leading professionals who are dedicated to supporting human health and well-being in the built environment.
The WELL AP credential is a new credential signifying advanced knowledge of health and well-being in the built environment and specialization in the WELL Building Standard TM (WELL). WELL APs have successfully passed the WELL AP exam, an assessment based on the expertise of leading practitioners in the field of design, health and wellness in the built environment. Developed using GBCI’s rigorous test development best practices, the WELL AP exam is designed to test a candidate’s knowledge and proficiency in building wellness and the principles, practices and applications of the WELL Building Standard. The WELL AP Exam was launched last October and was complemented by a comprehensive educational program.
“The health and wellness of employees has been a priority for our clients for some time but never more so than it is today. Becoming a WELL AP has given me a deeper understanding of this topic and will allow me to be a more well-rounded and valuable advisor to my clients,” said Mr. de Loizaga, who specializes in representing office occupiers.
