ABOUT US

Accessible Design & Renovations Company in Ottawa

Like many small companies, we began with two people and a big dream. We wanted to help people.

Additions_Decks

We saw two issues: 
 

There is a huge gap in skilled trades with the knowledge to help individuals to stay safe and independent in the built environment; and 

Accessibility is not seen as a health care issue when it impacts every aspect of our health and well-being.

Our Team

We wanted to change this.

Our homes.  Our workplaces.  Our communities.

Our vision became clear:
MAKE OTTAWA MORE ACCESSIBLE FOR EVERY AGE AND ABILITY.
 

It turns out, a lot of people felt the same way, and our little company with a big dream has grown into an amazing group of compassionate, skilled people who are working to redefine what accessible living can look like.

WHY NURSE-MANAGED CONSTRUCTION?

DISEASE PATHOLOGY  ~  COLLABORATION  ~  TRAINING  ~ ADVOCACY

"An accessible renovation for someone living with quadriplegia will look & function much differently than for someone newly living with an amputation - or wanting to age in place. Understanding how certain diseases, such as MS, may progress over time, makes the difference in ensuring our team is putting together a plan that will not only work for you today - but will also stand the test of time."

That said - we know that YOU are the expert in your lived experience.

You know your body and what it needs better than anyone.

We're here to make a plan work with you - and for you. 

CAREERS
