Tom Grey outlines Universal Design issues when considering the campus as a whole

Tom Grey looks at how to incorporate UD into campus and onsite circulation design.

In this video, Tom Grey outlines various Universal Design issues when considering the campus as a whole.

Campus design and onsite circulation will influence a wide range of broad and detailed planning, landscape and architectural features.

The location of key public hospital facilities frequented by older people, such as day services or outpatient clinics should be located for ease of access. Design considerations regarding legibility or comfort are also important, while more detailed issues such as lighting or seating should also be examined to ensure they reflect and are supportive of the needs of persons with dementia and their family members and/or carers. The overall campus character, architectural quality, key external public spaces; pedestrian and vehicular movement; and parking are also important.

Note: When considering this public realm, it important to think about the Key Design Issues as these are all applicable to the Campus Design and Onsite Circulation.
