Glickman Receives 2015 Chrysalis National Award for Universal Design… and Helps a Northern Virginia Couple Make their Condo More Livable

Glickman Design Build was truly honored to receive the 2015 Chrysalis National Award for Universal Design for this truly unique bathroom renovation. The client has ALS, a progressive neurodegenerative disease, and therefore needed to convert a basically brand new 18th floor condominium bathroom into an accessible bathroom. The client was away for the duration of construction and returning from Florida to the DC area in less than a month, the modifications had to be done relatively quickly. They came back to a completely made over bathroom and couldn’t have been more thrilled. The renovation included relocating some existing items and installing others completely new. The items that were removed from the existing bathroom included: a platform and a tub, a shower seat and a niche, a shower glass enclosure, a marble shower and bath floor and walls, a framed partition, a stone countertop, a wall-hung glass mirror, sliding door
