When developing aged care buildings we aim to create units which are homely in design and character, yet address the practical needs of the elderly.
Typically, the buildings we design are residential rather than institutional in elevation. We aim to create individual homes yet with a village atmosphere.
Internally, the units are designed with the changing needs of the elderly in mind, for example, ensuites are made larger whilst retaining the initial appearance of a conventional bathroom in a standard house.
We are well-versed in the numerous government regulations which apply to aged care facilities and when in doubt about the finer points, we are willing to engage sub-consultants as required to clarify the rules.
Apart from having knowledge of the technical processes required to develop the villages from scratch, we also have an understanding of the industry as a whole. We are members of the Retirement Village Association and Bruce Mactier served as a Director of Shepparton Villages for over ten years.
