Inclusive environments: designing neighbourhoods of the future

This interactive seminar will demonstrate how to integrate inclusive design principles into your designs and specifications, including little details that make a big difference. The session comprises live case studies, illustrated worked examples and updates on inclusive design standards, legislation and regulatory requirements.

This seminar will illustrate how to integrate inclusive principles into your designs, whilst still creating beautiful and appealing spaces and places. The speaker will illustrate a range of user needs and reinforce the importance of engaging with users, to create architecture that is fit for its intended purpose, now and in the future.

This interactive seminar will provide you with an understanding of inclusive environments through simple measures, including short quizzes, small group discussions, and live interactive polls.

The seminar will include:

  • an outline on how to design spaces and places for now and the future, in an affordable way that adds value for the client
  • information on how to design 'healthy' buildings, through detailing and specification
  • information on how to create inclusive environments, that go beyond Part M and deliver more than regulatory compliance
  • information on how inclusive design can be beautiful, without looking institutional
