Promoting Social Inclusion Through Universal Design
Since 2011, CDL has been committed to building socially inclusive green spaces with a Universal Design Policy. Apart from supporting Singapore’s vision of building an inclusive society, our initiative also contributes towards Goal 11 of UN SDGs in providing universal access to safe, inclusive and accessible, green and public spaces, in particular for women and children, older persons and persons with disabilities, by 2030.
Our principle of ‘designing for all people’ across all our projects goes beyond the minimum requirements specified in the Code of Barrier-Free Accessibility by BCA and the mandatory requirements of Universal Design. Details on CDL’s Universal Design Policy can be found on page 36.
In 2016, CDL’s H2O Residences and The Palette were recognised with the BCA Universal Design Mark Award – GoldPLUS for imbuing user-centric philosophy into its design, operations and maintenance. The Rainforest EC also received the Universal Design Mark Award – Gold.
