CAE delivered CPD sessions on Inclusive Design Principles for Royal Institute for British Architects RIBA in 2017
CAE delivered a series of successful seminars across England for RIBA on topic 7 inclusive design principles, raising awareness of a range of disabilities and medical conditions, which impact on everyday interaction with the built environment. The focus was on opportunities to improve or compromise accessibility at key points over the life of a building, during which both users needs and expectations will change.
The seminars took the delegate on a journey of inclusive design and management, from concept and planning, throughout construction, regulation and final occupation. It included reference to 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.
