Add-ons for accessibility control in object oriented design software

Abstract
Knowledge concerning how the built environment should be designed to allow accessibility for persons with different disablements is not sufficiently applied in building design and facilities management. Many of the difficulties in traditional paper based design to communicate and validate the use of a building can be overcome by the new possibilities that are offered by object oriented 3D based cad tools. The project has developed add-in/ons to Revit and ArchiCAD that support design for accessibility of the built environment. The focus is on means to facilitate accessibility for persons with physical disablements. Principles have been developed for analyses of wheel chair access to building spaces, e.g. entrances, corridors and hygiene... (More)
Knowledge concerning how the built environment should be designed to allow accessibility for persons with different disablements is not sufficiently applied in building design and facilities management. Many of the difficulties in traditional paper based design to communicate and validate the use of a building can be overcome by the new possibilities that are offered by object oriented 3D based cad tools. The project has developed add-in/ons to Revit and ArchiCAD that support design for accessibility of the built environment. The focus is on means to facilitate accessibility for persons with physical disablements. Principles have been developed for analyses of wheel chair access to building spaces, e.g. entrances, corridors and hygiene spaces, and to building objects e.g. doors concerning width and service space. The tools are intended to assist both designers and accessibility experts in analysing and evaluating properties for accessibility, and thus contribute to increased quality in building projects.
