DOES YOUR WORKPLACE FITOUT EXCLUDE OR MAKE ACCESS DIFFICULT FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES?

Working closely with key stakeholders, access consultants and our real world clients we've made accessibility a key focus in all of our designs and fitouts. We believe it's essential when designing a modern office fitout that it should serve everybody equally and be totally inclusive of the community as a whole.

Using insights gained over many years enables us to create unique stylish solutions for people with special needs who have to cope with real life access and mobility difficulties every day. We feel remaining flexible throughout the design and fitout process is the key to our success. Careful planning goes into every aspect of our fitouts to ensure they are accessible to all levels of mobility.

Complying with AS1428.1 2009 design for access and mobility is the minimum standard in Australia, but from our experience this is not enough. We know one solution doesn't fit all but it can be done so much better with a little thought and open discussion on what we can achieve with a given space.

Disability fitout

There are no challenges we can’t overcome through clever use of Australian made custom office furniture and joinery. Our reception desks contrast well in their surroundings and feature a set down section for wheelchair users. Other custom furniture options include kitchens, coffee and tea making facilities, boardroom furniture, offices desks and workstations. All designed to be used and accessible by the whole community without being conspicuous.

Using our spatial design software guarantees easy access to lifts with adequate passing spaces in passages and no non complaint dead end corridors. Our Light Reflectance Values (LRV) app ensures your door and wall colours are of the correct contrast ratio, while fitting in with your company culture.

We continue to evolve and adapt, taking full advantage of advances in technology.

We are committed to providing the highest levels of quality and service for people with disabilities. Delivering exceptional practical fitout solutions for all our community allowing people’s abilities to shine through, without being encumbered by lack of thought and impractical design in the workplace.
