The relatively new concept of Universal Design promotes an inclusive design that is made equally accessible to all sections of the society, including those with special needs, by top companies providing CAD architectural design services like The AEC Associates. If fully accessible buildings/ facilities are produced by the providers of CAD architectural design services, it will allow everyone to live a normal life and realize their full potential, a boon for the entire society.
We discussed in our previous post the necessity to provide a comfortable, hazard-free living environment to all the citizens, including the disabled, elderly and sick people, and also very young children.
some of the important aspects of the concept of Universal Design are discussed below:
- The roads
Growing urbanization trend and the ever-increasing number of the automobiles present a great challenge for CAD architectural design services to make the roads safe for the people. The road traffic is extremely difficult to negotiate even for the perfectly normal human beings, one can imagine the plight of those with special needs when they need to go out in today’s world.
It’s the responsibility of the planners to make arrangements to keep the roads safe for all the citizens, providing features that help people with special needs negotiate them without risking their life or health. Technology enables us to have systems/ devices to help the disabled or elderly people cross the roads at busy junctions, and so on.
Focus should also be on providing safe and easy to negotiate pedestrian paths to make it convenient and safe for everyone according to the concept of Universal Design.
The concept of Universal Design is aimed at making life comfortable for people in order to lead a normal life even if they have limited abilities due to physical problems or growing age. The responsibilities of CAD architectural design services and more important aspects of Universal Design will be discussed in our next post, too.
