Determined to pay more than lip service to accessibility, CityArchRiver hired Cohen Hilberry to serve as accessibility and inclusive design consultants for all project design and construction partners. Cohen Hilberry reviews drawings and construction mock-ups, develops inclusive design criteria, manages compliance with various regulations and works to resolve conflicts. As part of the design process, Cohen Hilberry assisted with the formation of the Universal Design Group (UDG), a group of citizens with knowledge of a wide range of disabilities who participate in the review and development of the project design. With friends in both the accessibility and design camps, Cohen Hilberry serves as moderator between the UDG and other team members. The creativity and mutual consideration exhibited at the UDG meetings have generated innovative design solutions in response to conflicts between access, security, historic preservation and structural requirements. While parts of the work are completed and open to the public, the entire project is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
