Many residential contractors are embracing a universal design principle. The goal is simple: Create living spaces that accommodate all people – from the able-bodied to the elderly and physically handicapped–without the need for adaptation or specialized design. The concept is especially marketable to the Active Adult baby-boomer population. "We are seeing the need for universal design and its' implementation is quickly becoming accepted as normal throughout the country. You can see it in all facets of the residential building industry, including single-family, multi-family, and remodeling." says Joel A. Bump, CAPS, EPA-RRP Certified. "Smart developers are building spaces that can be used by a larger group of people for a larger period of time."
