When planning and realising an accessible living design, the focus falls not only on creating a welcoming living environment but also on tailoring the home to day-to-day requirements of people living with disabilities to offer a high quality of life in every living situation. Customised solutions for happy, carefree living also allows those of aging in place to continue living in their own homes as they enter later life.
We build homes people with disabilities dream of, the home that has been coming together in their imagination for years, the backdrop of their future memories. And we want to build it well, at a price that is affordable. This is the idea that drives our work, and the reason we set our standards high. During construction, we use dependable building materials and implement a building process that features several checkpoints and inspections. All of our properties must meet strict standards and performance levels are applied to all new dwellings.
All of our accessible homes are designed, built and certified by LHA. Accessible homes are built with wide doorways, non step thresholds, recessed lights, solid internal doors, soundproofing and to suit individual needs.
Adoption of mandatory accessibility standards in the National Construction Code will take effect in 2022, were agreed upon at National Building Ministers Meeting. Changes will increase the stock of accessible housing, which will improve quality of life, employment opportunities and productivity to people living with a dsabilit and geing population. Mandatory accessibility standards will futureproof Australian housing.
Our goal is to provide housing for all people regardless of age, sex or disability, enhancing their health wellbeing and participation in the community.
