A bathroom remodel completed on the fast-track gives its user complete accessibility uss Glickman, CAPS, MCR, GACP, UDCP, EPA CR, not only had to complete a bathroom renovation in a one-month time frame, but he also had to customize it to make it completely accessible for his client with ALS, a degenerative neuron disease. Glickman is president and founder of Glickman Design Build, N. Potomac, Md. Te frm focuses on designs that are based on master plans that can be implemented in phases over the long term. One of the biggest challenges of this Arlington, Va., bathroom remodel was the strict one-month time frame to work within — it needed to be completed before the client returned to the D.C. area from Florida. Glickman says a project of similar magnitude generally would take two months in design and two months in construction. "Working with limited design options, we had to choose materials we knew would look great and be available to ft our time frame for completion. We explained the ma- terials with the clients via phone and email with photos," Glickman says. "And knowing we had limited design options being a condo bathroom, we were able to come up with a plan that suited the space perfectly while ac- commodating the client's needs." Te 18th foor unit also presented challenges relating to ease of getting in and out of the building. Fortunately, the team regularly works in similar buildings and knows the ins and outs of being as efcient as possible when dealing with parking, elevator and other building issues.
