The BCA Universal Design Mark (UD Mark) accords recognition to the building owners and designers who go beyond the code compliance to create user-friendly buildings. It allows assessment of projects at design stage, thereby facilitating the incorporation of UD principles from the onset of project development.
To support an inclusive environment, the BCA launched the Accessibility Master Plan. The UD Mark is part of this and provides a two-stage assessment process: upfront credit for the concept design and subsequent award affirmation when the development is completed. A "self-help" checklist makes UD more tangible and easier to implement.
