Building for Boomers

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

Much of the housing data, options, and trends integrated teams need on hand to plan, design, and construct integrated communities that satisfy the needs of aging baby boomers appear to be addressed in this book. Demographics alone should prompt you to consider the text. 77 million boomers will have live somewhere. Integrated teams of architects, builders, engineers, developers, and suppliers need to pay attention to their demands.
