Ms. Gozdz is a Residential Interior Designer and a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) and trainer for the National Home Builder’s Association (NHBA) in Aging in Place.

    Course Description
    Universal Design/Build presents a paradigm shift in how we approach residential design and construction. Comfort and convenience – regardless of age, stature or ability – is the hallmark of inclusive design. Additionally, universal design must be pleasing to the eye and cost competitive. This course will benefit all who design, supply, build and remodel homes as well as those affiliated with social and health services. Participants will benefit from the creative design concepts and practices presented in order to develop their own market-driven projects with both broad aesthetic appeal and the necessary functional attributes. CAPS designees may find additional benefits from the course since it expands into the broader spectrum of universal design with a much wider target audience. CAPS training is not a prerequisite.

    All attendees will learn to:

    • Describe the significance of integrating UD concepts into residential construction
    • Distinguish between accessibility & UD solutions
    • Locate UD resources, products, materials & services
    • Identify/implement UD solutions for various households, budgets & changing needs
    • Use effective marketing & communication strategies
    • Develop functional & attractive designs
