True Universal Design isn’t just about accessible design, it goes well beyond the Fair Housing Act. It’s about making the spaces we live in easier to use at all stages of life. From creative solutions that can make plugging in the vacuum easier, to bath accessories that are great looking but also work as a grab bar if needed, the NAHB webinar replay Rethinking Universal Design in Multifamily Projects will help designers and builders incorporate Universal Design into their living environments.
Universal Design doesn’t have to cost any more than standard construction if you incorporate the concepts in the initial design. In Rethinking Universal Design in Multifamily Projects we’ll cover the three levels of Universal Design: the must-haves, the desired options and the budget-stretching premium features. As the homebuilding industry begins to embrace “Total Wellness” as a differentiator, Universal Design is a key factor in that effort.
