SAGE has assembled a multidisciplinary jury for the 2016 Environments for Aging Remodel/Renovation Competition. Special thanks to all the SAGE members who are a part of this year's jury!
SAGE Secretary Andrew Alden has been involved with the competition since its inception in 2009. “The original purpose behind this competition came when we felt some providers made changes to just one or two spaces and never got the opportunity to showcase those,” he says. “The Remodel/Renovation competition allows them to do that and provides a venue for sharing how making changes to a single space can positively impact your residents, your staff, and/or your family. It doesn’t have to be an entire building.”
The jury for the competition is made up of SAGE members representing a variety of disciplines involved in creating environments for older adults. All judging is done virtually between June 8 and 22 and only takes about two hours total.
“To me, the main benefit to serving on the Remodel/Renovation Competition jury is all about getting ideas and looking at examples from other projects,” says Andrew. “You can then apply some of these ideas to whatever project you’re working on!”
