Building for Aging in Place

Gordon Porter Executive Director, presentation to Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia.

Creating inclusive housing designs with universal design principles is an important topic in all communities. When widely adopted by developers, inclusive housing design will help meet the changing needs of homeowners in residential buildings and serve the general needs of families and seniors. This course will demonstrate:

  • the incentives for developers and the direct benefits of building a home with inclusive design features;
  • the true costs of implementing inclusive housing design features; and
  • how to develop marketing language to clarify the value of the end product. link to presentation
