    Congratulations to Chad Boetger, AIA, LEED AP, WELL AP; Kristin Bowman, NCIDQ, WELL AP; Megan Chafin, AIA, LEED AP, WELL AP, CDT; Abby Farr, WELL AP; and Matt Jordan, AIA, LEED AP, WELL AP!

    They join Tayler Johnston, WELL AP, in earning this credential that recognizes proficiency in the field of design, health and wellness in the built environment. The WELL AP is the world’s first building standard focused exclusively on human health and wellness, marrying best practices in design and construction with evidence-based medical and scientific research on human health and wellbeing. 

    With six designers now credentialed as WELL APs — the most of any design firm in the greater Knoxville area — BarberMcMurry is demonstrating its commitment to sustainable design. 

    “Our approach to sustainable design is one of stewardship,” said Chad Boetger, Senior Vice President and Director of Design. “Sustainable design is simply good design — supporting health for building occupants and protecting the natural beauty of East Tennessee that we all know and love.”
