BdB team members Christina Duckett and Joe Doak with Professor Gavin Brooks
Christina Duckett (School of the Built Environment) and Joe Doak (School of Real Estate & Planning) joined Professor Gavin Brookes (Pro Vice Chancellor) at a special reception for the Built Environment Professional Education (BEPE) project at London City Hall on 2nd December 2015. Our Reading team were there to showcase the Breaking down Barriers initiative which is seeking to integrate inclusive design into built environment programmes across the University.
The BEPE project is about embedding inclusive design into the initial and continuing education of built environment professionals to help make inclusive design the norm, business as usual, in all development projects. The work of the BdB project was highlighted by Professor Brooks who overviewed the range of activities being undertaken to introduce UoR students to the importance of designing, building and managing an inclusive environment for all users.
