Universal Design Recognition Program

The Universal Design Project Recognition Program is available to all CotY entrants. Participants meeting specified criteria based on the CotY category entered will be recognized for meeting universal design standards regardless of CotY winning status. With the launch of this program, the existing Residential Universal Design category will be retired, thereby allowing entrants the opportunity to enter into the appropriate category as well and obtain recognition for universal design work.

There is nothing to purchase in advance. Download the Universal Design Project Recognition forms by accessing the link below, complete the forms, and send in with your CotY entry by the entry deadline, December 3, 2012.

Universal design standards cover an array of items that focus on accessibility, such as wider, low- or no-threshold doorways; lower countertops; main rooms on main floor; curbless showers; slip-resistant flooring material; lighting outlets and switches; use of ergonomic handles and more.
