Presenter bio:

With over 5 years of experience in architectural technology and accessibility consulting, William Zver has experience applying barrier-free/accessibility design requirements of the Building Code to various types of projects, including educational institutions, healthcare facilities, and retail fit-outs.

William’s experience, paired with his knowledge of accessibility (barrier-free design and universal design), allows him to think and problem solve alongside clients to meet and exceed the Code while also being respectful of the design intent of the project team.

As an Associate, William is often sought out for his depth of knowledge in applying multiple required Codes and Standards to projects to help facilitate with meeting the most restrictive Codes, while promoting the concepts of universal design.

Clients and peers alike reach out for his strong problem-solving skills and technical understanding of the barrier-free design requirements of Building Code, the AODA, and other best practice standards. Whether it is an accessibility audit or a drawing review, William is flexible and able to work with clients to fulfill the needs of the project.
