Client: Live West Homes
Contractor: Jones Building Group
Architect: Dunn Marino Associates
Employer’s Agent: Taylor Lewis
Demolition of an existing residential care home and
construction of 9 No. apartments and 7 No. bungalows for
use as supported living units; including 2 No. fully adapted
bungalows for wheelchair users.
The Client was keen to explore assistive technology
installations that added value to the future tenants. Working
closely with Possum, an innovative manufacturer/installer of
assistive technology solutions, the dwellings were fitted out
with home automation, wireless alarm call and digital
inclusion technology; future proofing the properties to deliver
supported living for the next generation.
To provide a secure living environment, wireless video door entry and networked concierge facilities were integrated into the assistive technology package. Enabling a tenant to receive a video door entry call, release/open the front door remotely or divert calls to the site office; all from an Android wireless device.
