The OpeMed Best Practice Guide for Specialist Architect Projects
Projects for residential properties such as care homes, hospitals and long term care facilities, involving the installation of disability equipment, can be fraught with unnecessary complications and time delays if they aren’t planned and designed correctly from the start.
To understand what architects require and would find useful when considering a project that involves specialist equipment, we recently sent out a survey to over 300 architects. The results highlighted that for architects, ensuring disability equipment provides optimum accessibility and ease of use is the main objective for specialist projects. I was also surprised to find that 100% of respondents found it difficult to understand the user requirements during their specialist projects in the past and would find a guide for these projects incredibly valuable.
Therefore, we have put together an architect’s guide for specialist projects that gives advice and information on every aspect from the planning stages through to design and delivery. It includes information on understanding user requirements, the best room layouts, through to advice on the products available.
