Ron Wickman - Barrier Free Architect

Ron's interest and expertise is in barrier-free design, that is accommodating the
needs of individuals with disabilities; he also has a special interest in multi-family housing and urban and community planning. His master's thesis, titled "Beyond the Ramp" investigated issues beyond the removal of physical barriers to accessibility for persons with disabilities; it concluded that community planning, the design of individual buildings, and barrier-free design must be considered as working interdependently to create a total environment better equipped to integrate a greater number of citizens into the mainstream of society. He specializes in providing consulting services for persons with disabilities and for projects focused on affording individuals with disabilities greater choices for independent movement.
