The Accessibility for Manitobans Act (AMA) became law in 2013 and was developed to identify, prevent and remove barriers to accessibility of services and the public environment. Our Inclusive Design services assist building owners and businesses to stretch beyond building codes to reach best-practice Canadian Standards in accessibility and inclusion.
When consulting on new public or employee space, or the renovation of current space, we use principles of Universal Design and Sustainability while considering the functional use of space as it relates to mobility, cognition and sensory differences in the people who work for and access the environment. Our Inclusive Design Specialists work with architects, builders, project managers to help you renovate or build a fully accessible environment, optimizing ergonomics and ability, with a human factor focus. By involving us in the early concept design phase instead of having us review finished specification plans, you can ensure cost-saving, functional solutions are embedded into your plan before it is too late to add important accessibility features and functional design elements.
