Universal Design - Future proofing the built environment

What is Universal Design and how does it relate to buildings and facilities? How is it different from minimum, legislated access requirements? Why and how does it assist with future proofing our assets and make them more usable for everyone.

This short course provides an overview of Universal Design and the positive impact it can have when incorporated into the design and development of buildings and facilities.

The key principles of Universal Design are explored and examples of how these are applied in buildings and facilities and how they differ from minimum, legislative access requirements are discussed. Photographic examples support an interesting and thought provoking session that will be of interest to anyone working on improving the usability of the built environment.
