In short, barrier-free design is all about access, with a focus on creating physical environments that accommodate individuals with disabilities. How people access, move around (whether walking, running, or rolling), and exit properties can have a profound impact on both quality of life and productivity. And it is a fact that buildings that are not suitably equipped are more challenging for those with disabilities. This is why design elements like ramps, wider hallways to accommodate wheelchairs, lower counter tops, and more, are often recommended and/or required.
Through the F. Lax Construction barrier-free design division, we enable physically challenged individuals to experience full functionality in their homes. By use of architectural designers, occupational therapists, estimators and project managers, we tailor your home or rental property to fulfill your specific needs and meet the stringent regulatory requirements. From barrier free kitchens, to bathrooms, to walk in showers and more, our designs are deliberately adaptable so that they can be modified if necessary.
