Innovation in Aged Care Facility Design


4 Formal CPD Hours

$15 Administration Fees

12:00 pm Registration and Light Lunch

 


As Australia’s ageing population grows, designers need to work hard to come up with better experiences for residents that will give them quality of life they expect and deserve.

This workshop will look at the design aspect for architects and designers to look at spaces, where equipment can be placed for easy access, without affecting aesthetics or comfort. Lighting and floor covers which are equally as important will be discussed as will be the administration area.


 

12:30 – 1:20 pm – Practical  Slip Resistance
John West

 

Designing with sufficient levels of slip resistance is often poorly understood – we demonstrate the consequences of getting it wrong. Changes to standards and handbooks include a number of significant new recommendations including:

– The effects of wear and usage on slip resistance

– BCA changes including residential

– Definition of Wet, Dry and Transitional Areas

– Limitations of various AS test methods

– Benefits of certain AS test methods

The pendulum test apparatus will be set up and practical demonstrations will be included. Attendees are welcome to bring an item to test.  Metz has delivered this presentation and similar to hundreds of designers and architects throughout Australia

2:30 – 3:20 pm – LED: Lighting for Health and Aged care
Shaun Dudley

 

We now understand that artificial lighting has the power to affect our health and wellbeing, positively or negatively.  Combining this understanding with the latest LED technology, we are able to design and specify lighting to positively affect our natural biorhythms. This leads to far ranging physical and mental health benefits for residents and carers.
