Home Modification Victoria launched to deliver well designed and quality-built accessible homes to the community

Architecture & Access is pleased to launch Home Modification Victoria offering comprehensive services to maximise independence and lifestyle for people of all ages and abilities.

“For more than 30 years, our company’s role and mission has been to enable people with disability and their families to enjoy access to their homes, workplaces, businesses, sporting facilities and public buildings,” says Director Andrew Sanderson.

Our specialist home modification team has delivered an impressive portfolio of more than 200 residential projects for insurance and private clients, earning us the reputation for specialist home modification knowledge, quality design and reliable delivery.

“Home Modification Victoria enables people with disability, families and retirees to engage us directly to meet their needs for well designed and quality-built accessible homes.”

“Many people are unsure about who to contact about taking the first step towards home modification,” says Andrew. “They may be experiencing difficulty getting into and around the home, attending to showering, cooking or enjoying everyday activities, or they may be a partner or family member caring for someone with an increasing need for support.”

Home Modification Victoria provides people with that important first port of call to speak an experienced consultant who may explain the process of home modification and listen to their needs.

This initial consulting service is part of the holistic approach taken by Home Modification Victoria from the assessment of home modification needs through to design and construction.

Home Modification Victoria has streamlined the process of home modification into four steps.

Each project begins with an in-home consultation with one of our Home Modification Specialists and an occupational therapy assessment if required.

Our Home Modification Specialists listen carefully to the client’s needs, assess the property and produce draft concepts applying access and design expertise, construction knowledge and cost-saving suggestions to create an achievable approach to meet the needs of all involved.

Home modification is an effective strategy to increase independence for the individual and support the work of carers. Home modification may involve:

  • Access and transfer from car and street to the home
  • Kitchen design, appliances, tap ware, sinks, benches and storage
  • Bedroom design and accessible wardrobes
  • Bathroom and toilet design, stepless design, accessible fittings, grab rails, vanities and storage
  • Furnishing, flooring, lighting and glazing
  • Interior design
  • landscape design
  • Assistive technologies including security, lighting, motion sensors and temperature control applications.
  • “Home Modification Victoria is equipped to service residential modifications and developments of any scale and all stages of progression,” says Andrew.

    People may engage Home Modification Victoria to provide pre-purchase inspection, in-home consultation, occupational therapy assessment, technical advice regarding structural and construction issues, architectural design, assistive technology, tender administration, project management, interior and landscape design.

    The highly experienced team of designers, occupational therapists and home modification specialists at Home Modification Victoria promotes the importance of good design to enable people to live life more fully.

    “Every residential project – whether it is a bathroom or kitchen modification, ramp or lift installation, custom build or multi-use development – benefits from our specialist knowledge of universal design, construction and assistive technology applied to our deep understanding of what people with disability need in and around the home.”

    “Our goal is to make home modification a positive experience, in terms of the process and outcome, by placing the client at the centre of each project and empowering them to be actively involved in the design process,” says Andrew. “People can be confident in the care we take from start to finish.”

    “When people engage us they can expect individual attention, exceptional value for money, superior design aesthetics, quality workmanship and compliance with the building code and planning requirements.”

    “Most importantly, people can expect to be more independent, confident and happy to live in their well designed accessible home.”
