Special considerations often should be made for those falling in the Baby Boomer age group, who especially should take into account the accessibility of their homes and improvements that can be made.

Incorporate universal design strategies into your next remodeling project with this five-step guide from the experts at the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), which offers certification in universal design to provide contractors with the knowledge and training to ensure accessibility in kitchen and bathroom designs.

Today, it seems as though everything is under construction. Be it downtown or beyond the county line, a walk outside unencumbered by a sleek looking building or bridge being built is almost a rarity.

Although these projects are being built to the specs of the most modern designs and often accommodate the latest technology criteria, the crews building them are not necessarily taking advantage of the latest technologies available to drive faster and more accurate project completion. While there have been some recent strides in adoption, the construction industry has a looming reputation for being slow to adopt the latest tech for the jobsite.
