LI endorses essential principles for an inclusive environment

The Landscape Institute is one of 15 professional institutions endorsing guidance launched by the Construction Industry Council (CIC).

An ‘Essential Principles Guide’, the document contains guidance for built environment professionals on creating an accessible and inclusive environment.

The guidance adopts the six principles suggested by the Office for Disability Issues in the March 2016 Report of Progress for its Built Environment Professional Education Project (BEPE).

The report recommended that all built environment professionals, institutions and related bodies adopt these principles.

CIC’s guidance is aimed at a wide range of professionals that contribute to the design, construction and management of buildings – including architects, engineers, facilities managers, landscape practitioners, planners and surveyors – who ‘[have] a huge impact on the accessibility and inclusivity of our built environment’.

The aim of the BEPE Project is to build on the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by helping to change how inclusive design skills are taught in the UK. It seeks to ensure that all built environment professionals receive the training they need to help create inclusive places and spaces.

Tony Burton commented: "G&T is delighted to support this important initiative, which has the potential to positively influence the built environment for many years to come. By embracing these six principles … the construction and property industry can achieve the same impressive levels of accessibility we saw in London 2012."
