About

We provide a range of services including design reviews, audits of existing buildings, training, professional opinions, assistance with alternative solutions to the BCA, and much much more.

Our experienced staff have contributed to many projects, big and small, and some iconic. Let us assist you in realising the most usable building possible in your project too.

Universal Design
Accessibility has long been a term that described adding a separate set of building elements to meet the needs of people with disabilities; creating an approach which segregates and discriminates by its very nature. Universal Design, as espoused by The Center for Universal Design, represents a paradigm shift in the design and usability of buildings and products alike. A shift focused on the needs of all users and the benefits of engaging user experiences and knowledge directly. Universal Design should be a dynamic process and not a standard set of antiquated codified requirements.

Existing Building Audits & Due Diligence Reports

Ensure that your building does not discriminate against people with disabilities and gain invaluable feedback in how to improve the usability of your building for all occupants and visitors; people with sensory and mobility issues right through to parents with prams and service people.
Don't commit to a building purchase which may expose you to unnecessary legal risks under the Disability Discrimination Act (1992). Ensure your investment meets the spirit and intent of the relevant legislation and can be managed appropriately.

Design Reviews

Gain functional advice at a critical stage of your project and allow us to assist you with achieving the best outcomes in the environments you are creating for all your project's future occupants.
Sound and achievable advice and the necessary stakeholder communication and management to gain the results you require.

Alternative Solution Formulation & Reporting
Our extensive experience as Occupational Therapists and Access Consultants allows us to bring a highly functional response to formulating Alternative Solutions to the BCA. Ongoing direct involvement with people with disabilities as well as a strong focus in evidence based practice, allow us to apply our knowledge with the flexibility and validity necessary to meet the needs of both building owners and building users.
We provide informed and reasoned responses without the uncertainty of subjective approaches often applied by others in the field.

Home Modifications

We can provide design advice, assist with the management of your modifications and ensure your works are completed to a suitable specification and standard.
Our extensive experience in Occupational Therapy, Building Design, Access Consultancy and Project Management has all bases covered in ensuring a well coordinated and executed home modification process, on time and on budget.

Training & Presentations
Training sessions can be tailored to suit all audiences, just inform of us of your needs and we can do the rest. Please contact us if you require an up to date presentation for your staff or team.
We would love the opportunity to tell you more about what we do and how we can assist.

Disability Discrimination Action Plans

Developing Action Plans, as recognised under the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act 1992, is a proactive way of not only seeking compliance with the act but can also be a powerful business development activity. Developing and implementing a suitable action plan can enhance corporate image and extend products and services to a broader market.
In the context of an aging population, planning to meet the needs of as wide an audience as possible will be a critical ongoing activity to all types of business.
