Flat Spaces Accessible Holiday Home Build
Flat Spaces Build is Underway for New Accessible Holiday Home
As previously mentioned in a blog post, OpeMed are proudly working with Flat Spaces as the main supplier of wet room and bedroom hoisting, showering and changing equipment.
Flat Spaces aim to build and install fully accessible holiday homes for rental as there is a distinct lack of this provision in the UK. The project, founded by Tom Yendell has been a passion for many years and he aims for over night stays to become a relaxing and stress free experience as you would expect from a holiday. The Flat Space vision is to have at least one bungalow in every country, as well as expanding overseas. A rigorous method of setting and maintaining standards is being developed, and all those involved in servicing the bungalows will have a period of training. It is the Flat Space intention to work with the local community surrounding each Flat Space bungalow, and to employ local people and services.
As a major supplier for the project, we were pleased to be invited along on Tuesday 17th February to join the Flat Spaces team to watch the very first build commence. The home will be accessible from the front to back door and the design includes the OT200 ceiling hoist from bedroom through to wet room as well as changing and showering equipment for additional support where needed.
The first location is currently being built in Hampshire and will be finished by the Spring. All pictures taken by OpeMed.
