Eric Engelhart of Boardwalk Builders Inc. in Rehoboth Beach recently earned the designation of Universal Design Certified Professional from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
A Universal Design Certified Professional (UDCP) designation proves the remodeling contractor’s superior knowledge, technical comprehension and skill in principles attractive not only to those who wish to age-in-place, but also to families with special needs and families that are forward thinking. A UDCP proves knowledge in the seven principles of Universal Design, how to interview clients with an understanding and consideration of their special needs, and finally the how-to of building these projects.
NARI’s UDCP program measures skill and expertise valued not only by other professional remodelers, but by consumers as well. Highly respected by those who have achieved the designation, the UDCP program identifies professional remodelers who have undergone comprehensive review and testing in areas of universal design/remodeling. In addition they must also adhere to NARI’s strict Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.
