Emily Rivera Earns ACHA Board Certification

Congratulations goes out to Emily Rivera, who recently added the American College of Healthcare Architects Board Certification to her resume.

ACHA provides board certification to architects who specialize in health care within the United States and in countries where NCARB reciprocal licensure can be obtained. The certification process is rigorous and overseen by an independent testing agency, in order to establish a professionally sound, legally defensible standard by which people can identify themselves as healthcare architects.

Take a look at her recent thought leadership article on The Value of Full-Scale Mockups during the design process.

The Value of Full-Scale Mockups
