Universal design – Not Just Another Name for Access

    There is a vast difference between the mandated, legislated requirements for access, and the Principles of Universal Design, however many practitioners believe these are interchangeable. This limited interpretation of Universal Design, dilutes and restricts the potential positive outcomes for everyone.

    Are we losing focus in moving forward with UD?
    What do we really mean in terms of UD as it relates to buildings and facilities?
    What are differences between access and UD?
    Why is it important to differentiate?
    Why is it important to integrate?
    Better outcomes will be achieved with a broader understanding of these issues. It is time to re-educate and articulate to maximise opportunities for the benefit of the whole community.
    What are the next steps for success?
