ACT Adaptable Housing Project
|Client||Housing ACT, Community Services Directorate|
|Timeframe||2015 - 2016|
|Role||Principal's Authorised Person|
The project involved the construction of nine new dwellings at three separate sites in Spence, Watson and Deakin in the ACT. The new houses and townhouses were designed to achieve compliance with the Adaptable Class ‘C’ Code, AS 4299-1995.
An adaptable house is one that is safe and easy to use for occupants of all ages. It must be easily adaptable without costly alterations to suit occupants, now or in the future, who have any type of disability. Specific reference is paid to landscaping, security, car parking, signage, lighting, floor levels, entrances, doorways and circulation spaces, sanitary facilities, bedrooms, kitchen, living and laundry areas.
