Paige Panek Joins LCM
LCM welcomes Paige Panek to our FHA consulting group. She brings experience in reviewing plans, creating construction documents, conducting accessibility audits, and implementing accessibility standards in her designs.
Paige has a BFA in Interior Design from Iowa State University and a passion for universal design. Paige has immersed herself in studies and internships that focused on inclusive environments and human factors in design.
On the interiors team at the University’s Facilities and Management Department, she assisted in implementing a long-term, campus-wide accessibility initiative. The University’s goal is ADA compliance for every campus project, regardless of size or vintage. Collaborating with the team to find solutions to challenging conditions has deepened her passion for creating accessible spaces.
Paige’s study of inclusive environments and human factors in design prepared her for a particularly rewarding Living Building Challenge project. She was on a team that designed Regenerative Housing for Young Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The project was selected for presentation at the Environmental Design Research Association’s annual conference in April 2020.
