New York, NY (July 7, 2015) – The International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) is pleased to announce that Scott Rawlings, AIA, FACHA, LEED AP and a Principal and Healthcare Practice Leader for Payette - one of the country’s top architectural design firms - has joined its Advisory Council. A leader in the healthcare design industry, Rawlings brings key insight into the healthcare design and architecture communities to IWBI, which was launched in 2013 as a public benefit corporation devoted to improving human health and well-being through the built environment.

“Scott’s leadership in the research and design of healthcare environments that support the health of patients, families, staff and communities is a major contribution to the fields of design and architecture,” said IWBI Founder Paul Scialla. “The WELL Building Standard is the next wave in this movement, and we are eager to collaborate with Scott as we move to develop WELL for healthcare environments.”

Throughout his 20-year career, Rawlings has built and led multiple studios for some of the most notable design firms in the U.S., working both domestically and internationally on five continents. His work spans the spectrum of healthcare development from strategic master planning, programming and operations to full service design and construction.

"The work that the International WELL Building Institute is doing to fuse sustainable design with wellness establishes the next great step forward, and I am honored to serve on the IWBI Advisory Council,” said Scott Rawlings.

Rawlings’ passion for advancing the state of design in the profession has driven him to remain active with affiliated organizations and academia. He served on the board of the AIA Academy of Architecture for Health Knowledge Community for nine years, leading the organization as national president in 2005. He is also a founding member and Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Architects and a regular speaker on the national symposium circuit, as well as in university settings. Rawlings received his master’s degree in Architecture and Healthcare Facilities Design from the Clemson University Architecture + Health Studio.
