Barrier-Free Construction

Berlin's construction policies are aimed at removing barriers.
Ensuring fewer obstacles in everyday life requires a coordinated approach and project planning aimed at meeting the needs of people who want to benefit from the city's diversity without having to overcome barriers.

The "Barrier-Free Construction" coordinating office at the Senate Department for Urban Development and Housing is a key partner for public and private property developers, institutions, architects, and engineers. They offer advice on construction projects, head the "Barrier-Free Construction and Transportation" working group, and host continuing education seminars and informational events.
