Lifetimes Homes consultancy is a service that we offer to ensure that your floor plans are designed appropriately before you build – giving you the chance to ensure that your CAD plans and other architectural documentation is created to ensure that your house is built to fully accessible, space maximizing designs. In high density developments can be an attractive additional feature to hiring us to ensure your plans meet the 16 design criteria.
Auditing your drawing board based plans is often easier than coming in and auditing before final hand off, because in many cases the changes required to make a house ‘Lifetime Homes’ compliant will require quite extensive changes to standard homes designed.
These guidelines allow you to meet Part M of the building regulations, giving builders and designers the confidence to enjoy the designs, without feeling that it needs a larger ‘space’ footprint than other houses.
