What does "Universal Design" mean?

Vater Construction specializes in Universal Design, or home design with features that meet everyone’s needs. Many of the hallmarks of Universal Design are common modifications in CAPS remodeling projects. These features can include one-story living without steps, wider doorways and hallways, improved lighting, walk-in showers, non-slip floors and bathtubs, rocker light switches, and more floor-space to make moving around easier.

What does "CAPS" mean?

In addition to being one of few construction companies in Northwest Indiana with experience in Universal Design, owners Eric and Anne Vater are among a small group of builders in the immediate area who hold the Certified Aging-In-Place Specialists (CAPS) designation through the National Association of Home Builders.

The NAHB’s Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist program was created to enable homeowners to continue to live safely and comfortably in a familiar environment as they age. To do this, many homes must be remodeled or modified to meet changing accessibility and safety needs.

What is a "Certified Green Professional"?

The Certified Green Professional™ designation recognizes builders, remodelers and other industry professionals who incorporate green and sustainable building principles into homes— without driving up the cost of construction. The required courses provide a solid background in green building methods, as well as the tools to reach consumers, from the organization leading the charge to provide market-driven green building solutions to the home building industry.
