Aging In Place & Universal Design

The Perkins Construction Company is committed to helping homeowners find solutions to stay in their home and neighborhood. Challenges to a person’s mobility whether due to infirmity or age needn’t mean having to move. We have a long history of adapting buildings to special needs, and we’ve been doing so since long before the term Aging in Place was coined.

You Don’t Have To Move

We can perform a room by room and complete exterior evaluation and tell you how your home can be adapted to your special needs.


We can make bathrooms that will accommodate a wheelchair, including roll-in showers. We can build exterior and interior ramps to make your home barrier free. We can install cabinets and countertops at special heights, widen doorways, install security systems, install special door and assistance hardware. We’ve installed many elevators to afford access to all levels in a building, and even installed special ceiling mounted track & trolley systems to afford mobility where a wheelchair is less practical.
