Madrid Estates UFAS Accesibility Renovation and Modernization


The collaboration of Craig E. Dillon, AIA Architects and Dayton Metropolitan Housing Authority made the renovation of four units at Madrid Estates possible.  The goals of the renovation were to improve the quality of the apartments and to comply with the requirements of UFAS, which ensures that a building is safe, convenient, and comfortable for handicap residents.  The interior of the units were completely demolished, leaving a blank slate within the shell of the existing structure.  The floor plans were rearranged to incorporate more space allowing easy flow for wheelchairs.  The kitchen and bathroom were updated with new durable and attractive cabinets, counter tops, and fixtures that modernize the units’ appearance and are handicap accessible.  Wheelchairs can easily travel across the non slip flooring that also provides a safe surface to walk. The apartments at Madrid Estates were completely revitalized with new fixtures and finishes to create a beautiful and safe dwelling for both handicap and non-handicap residents.
