Universal Design

Simply stated, Universal Design is about making products and environments usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation and without sacrificing aesthetic quality.

It is a relatively young discipline, but one in which Riemco has become experienced and knowledgeable as a natural outgrowth of our “build smart” culture. A recent project for an active woman in a wheelchair incorporated extensive universal design features.
