Webinar: Barrier Free – Accessible Design for the Built Environment

January 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Presentation Description:

Mandated requirements for accessibility in Canada and demand from an aging population is creating a growing need for barrier-free bathrooms. Today’s accessibility compliant bathroom no longer has to be utilitarian or “institutional” in its design. Design options are enhanced through the use of tile and innovative construction methods. The result is beautiful bathrooms that also adhere to accessibility standards for accessible design.

This webinar will examine ways in which barrier-free environments can be customized to include various design elements while remaining compliant for accessibility. It will also address why bonded waterproofing technology lends itself to the construction requirements of barrier-free design.
