Architects for Disabled Adaptations
Are you looking for architects for disabled adaptations? Trimble Architects offer advice and installation of adaptations designed for people with disabilities. We can help make parts of your home more accessible including bathrooms, kitchens, disabled access and bespoke construction.
The services we offer can either be used separately or as a whole, with our project management service, where we handle planning permission, risk assessments, party wall agreements, supervision at the construction site, create schedules and look over plans. Our main aim is to take the stress away from our client's projects and ensure they run as smoothly and successfully as possible.
What are Disabled Alterations?
For home accessibility, we offer architects for disabled adaptations. Whether it's for a new build home or a commercial building, we use our professional knowledge and experience to ensure we can make adaptions to cater for all your needs. From fitting stairlifts to lowering surfaces, we can help and advise you.
The alterations could also include widening spaces to improve access, adding ramps to doorways, or completely revamping bathrooms. We want to make sure the facilities within your business or at home are accessible and easy for people with disabilities to use.
When adapting bathrooms, it is important to ensure you take everything into consideration, as bathrooms can be very slippy and hard to access.
Level Access Shower
Having a level access shower means there is no need to step up or step down when getting into or out of the shower.
Wet Room (flush floor shower)
A wet room can be very beneficial, as everything is on the same level, so it's much easier to access and helps avoid any obstacles.
Walk-in baths are great as they are tall and easy to sit in. They also come with a door, so you don't have to step in or out of the bath.
We can fit shower toilets to give the added benefit of independence. They are also more hygienic and reduce any risks of infections.
It is important to ensure everything is within reach when adapting your home for disabled access. Here are a few ways that will help:
Ramps and Platforms
If you are a wheelchair user, ramps are brilliant for getting around more easily. These can be either concrete or metal, whichever you prefer.
Low Threshold Doors (external)
Having low threshold doors can be very beneficial as they make access easier for people with disabilities, as it reduces the step from the ground to the door.
For wheelchair users, widening doorways can make it easier for the wheelchair to fit through, without having to struggle. This can save time and stress.
Sliding Doors (pocket and surface mounted)
If you would like to find out more information about the range of sliding doors we offer, please don't hesitate to give us a call today.
Instead of having the struggle of stairs, through-floor lifts are fantastic. They are suitable for a wheelchair, and the lift will take you upstairs and bring you back down again.
Automated Door and Window Openers
Automated door and window openers are an easy way to open your doors and windows, so you don't need to struggle.
Intercom systems are a great way to feel safer at home, as you can talk to whoever is at the door, and choose who enters your property and who doesn't.
We can also handle your bespoke construction work. We can liaise with you, your family and your carers to find some helpful and beneficial changes that could change your life.
We can help remodel your home to make it more accessible for you. This may be adding in adaptions, or changing rooms around. This is to prevent you from having to go up and down the stairs a lot.
Here at Trimble Architects , we can covert your garage for you into whatever you want. For example, a more accessible bedroom so you don't have to go upstairs. Please give us a call for more details.
Adding extensions onto your home can make it easier to move around, and also make room for more adaptions. If you would like to discuss your requirements with us, we can help you come up with the best way to extend your home.
