What is Universal Design
Universal design makes things more accessible, safer, and convenient for everyone. Also called “Design for All” or “Inclusive Design”, it is a philosophy that can be applied to policy, design and other practices to make products, environments and systems function better for a wider range of people. It developed in response to the diversity of human populations, their abilities and their needs. Examples of universal design include no step entries, no curb showers with seats, lever handles, higher outlets, lower switches, wider hallways and door openings, blocking for future or present grab bars, planed lighting, and the accessibility features incorporated into kitchen, baths and computer operating systems and software.
As builders our mission should be a shared one:
To create with our children in mind, beautifully designed, green buildings, respecting energy use, the best if our resources and indoor air quality.
That every person live, work, and play in harmony with nature.
We can enhance people’s lives.
