The WELL Airport advisory centres around the ways in which WELL can meet the growing need to prioritize health and well-being in the development, design and operations of airports. The WELL Airport advisory is a group of leading global subject matter experts and practitioners in the fields of public health, design, media, architecture, engineering and building science. Michael has been specifically chosen for his experience in applying the WELL building standard in the built environment and designing airports in Europe, Middle East, Asia and South America.

Over the course of the next year, Michael will work with IWBI to increase the accessibility and applicability of WELL, align the standard with the latest industry research and raise the bar for healthy, high performing airports around the world. 

Upon the appointment, Michael commented: “I am honoured to have been selected to join the 2020 WELL Airport Advisory. Airports are unique places for both passengers and the employees that work in them and have similarly unique challenges where standard approaches used for other building types are not always appropriate. I am therefore eager to explore through this group the opportunities to apply the principles of WELL in the aviation sector to improve the quality of airport environments worldwide.”

Matthew Pierpoint, Ramboll’s global aviation director said: “I’m really excited that Michael is part of the 2020 WELL Airport Advisory, helping to shape the WELL standards for airports. Health and wellbeing in our built environment is an important issue and we need to help develop infrastructure to enhance passenger experience and working environment of staff. This appointment recognises both Michael’s and Ramboll’s expertise and experience in WELL and airport design.” 

Ramboll’s investment in WELL and support for the WELL Airport Advisory enables us to help our aviation clients differentiate themselves by offering better experiences for their passengers and staff.
