On this episode of Build for Impact, Daniel A. Huard invited Jennifer Berthelot-Jelovic to explore the four pillars of green building – sustainability, transparency, wellness and resiliency – and to focus on wellness, in particular.

Berthelot-Jelovic is the President and CEO of A SustainAble Production (ASAP). ASAP is a women-owned, full-service, global sustainability and wellness consulting firm based in Los Angeles.

ASAP provides an array of holistic global consulting services including sustainable, regenerative, resilient and healthy design and construction for single buildings, communities, portfolios and entire cities.

Berthelot-Jelovic is also an expert in the International WELL Building Institute’s (IWBI) WELL Building Standard (WELL). She was one of the first Provisional WELL APs, WELL APs, and WELL Faculty in the world, was a Peer Reviewer for v1.0 and v2.0 of the standard and continues to contribute to the development of WELL. She works with global companies as they explore WELL for their projects and portfolios.

The WELL standard “holistically addresses” health and wellness, which helps guide more comprehensive commitments to sustainability in design and construction.

“For me, wellness is a balanced lifestyle that addresses air quality, water quality and access, healthy, nutritious food, light that is best for productivity and performance, being comfortable in my space, being inspired and motivated by my space, having the ability to exercise, and getting a good night’s sleep,” she said.

Huard and Berthelot-Jelovic draw on a decade-long relationship in the industry to highlight these concepts and provide a thoughtful conversation on the current state and future of sustainable design.
