Mr Neil Smith

Advisory Board Member

I have over fifteen years’ experience in the field of inclusive design and have significant experience in the project meeting both physical access and service requirements of the Equality Act 2010 and the broader requirements of delivering inclusive environments that are accessible to all. I lead BurroHappold's Inclusive Design consultancy service. I am the principle author of the Olympic Delivery Authority’s ‘Inclusive Design Standards’ and am co-author of the Metric Handbook (3rd edition) chapter on access and inclusion. I am currently a member of the National Register of Access Consultants Management Board and represent the NRAC on the BSI Committee for B/559 Access to buildings for disabled people. I am appointed to the Design Council CABE Built Environment Experts panel.

With changes in population demographics resulting in a growing number of care homes there is an ever pressing need for design professionals to understand what makes a good quality care home and how to create an enabling built environment to provide older people with healthy, high quality and socially fulfilling lives.
