Glen Head, New York – Michael Emmert from Golden-Eye Construction in New York recently earned the designation of Universal Design Certified Professional (UDCP) from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, (NARI).

A Universal Design Certified Professional (UDCP) designation proves the remodeling contractor’s superior knowledge, technical comprehension and skill in principles attractive not only to those who wish to age-in-place but also families with special needs and families that are forward thinking. A UDCP proves knowledge in the seven principles of Universal Design, how to interview clients with an understanding and consideration of their special needs, and finally the how-to of building these projects.

“As a third-generation master carpenter, it became very apparent that when I started to grow my business, that I would make continuing education a top priority. I love the fact that our employees feel the same way and understand we’re only as good as the information we learn. NARI gives us the ability to continue our growth. I would recommend, to anyone that wants to better themselves, to take the time to go to class and earn certifications. It will not only benefit you, but it will benefit your clients.” (Michael Emmert)
