MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin – July 20, 2017

Rivion is proud to announce that team members Megan Wolf and Samantha Longshore have become the first Fitwel Ambassadors in the state of Wisconsin. A joint initiative led by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the General Services Administration (GSA), the Fitwel certification system promotes building occupant health and productivity through improvements in workplace design and policy.

“Fitwel is a certification that is affordable and accessible to many,” said Megan Wolf, Solutions Consultant for Rivion. “Wellness programs only get employees so far; Fitwel takes that extra step to address healthy behaviors in the workplace. I cannot wait to start working with clients to help make buildings healthier and more productive.” Current ambassadors hail from over 10 countries across the globe, serving as leaders and active participants in Fitwel’s healthy building movement.

Fitwel promotes broad-based, economical, and evidence-based strategies. By eliminating prerequisites, Fitwel allows buildings and tenant spaces to focus on strategies best-aligned with their goals, while avoiding cost-prohibitive or incompatible roadblocks. “With so few barriers to entry and an ease of use and understanding, Fitwel could propel the healthy building movement,” said Samantha Longshore, Senior Solutions Consultant for Rivion. “This is giving owners and occupants a manageable path forward- a place to start.” While applicable and impactful in existing buildings, Fitwel also serves as a roadmap for design and construction projects.
