Universal design, or as we like to call it, future-proof design, accounts for the unexpected events in life, creating spaces that allow for independent living when age or injury impact mobility. For most of our clients, it is about planning for the future, as we are often building the last home they plan to live in, but we can also modify spaces for imminent changes.
Because of our owner’s educational background in Occupational Therapy, as well as his certification as a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, we are able to offer a perspective and skill-set uncommon in our industry. While most contractors and designers would need a third party consult to properly evaluate a client’s specific needs, we are able to assess from the proper frame of reference in-house. We understand the common musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, and neurological limitations that can occur with age or health challenges, and are able to adapt designs to minimize barriers to independent living.
