Universal Design/Build

Universal Design/Build presents a shift in the approach to residential design and construction. Comfort and convenience regardless of age, stature or ability is the hallmark of inclusive design. Designers, suppliers, builders, remodelers, and health care professionals will benefit from the creative design concepts and practices presented to develop market-driven projects that are highly functional, yet integrated and aesthetically appealing. Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) courses are not a pre-requisite and CAPS graduates will find benefit by expanding into the broader spectrum of universal design that offers a much wider target audience.
