Event Description

In an increasingly competitive environment, there is more need than ever for inclusive design and conservation skills. This seminar combines inclusive design principles, with raising awareness of a range of disabilities and medical conditions, which impact on everyday interaction with the built environment. These principles are applicable across all building types, regardless of size and function, from the grandest hotel or heritage building, to general purpose offices, to the smallest community centre or shop.

The opportunities to improve or compromise accessibility occur at key points over the life of a building, during which both user needs and expectations will change. You will look at the journey of inclusive design and management, from concept and planning, throughout construction, regulation and final occupation, during which architectural advice and guidance may often be sought. This seminar will also explore legislation such as the Equality Act, and the role of Planning and Policy, Building Regulations and Standards, as well as key areas of inclusive design such as the spatial, visual and environmental implications of a building on accessibility.

The seminar will give updates on recent research and developments, such as changes proposed to existing BS8300 Code of Practice, and the progress of recommendations in fields such as designing for dementia and neuro diversity, and the use of technology to enhance access to buildings and services.
