A Campaign has been launched by Livable Housing Australia (LHA) to encourage Home Builders to incorporate a number of optional low cost Universal Design features into New Residential Buildings.

The Design of the Australian family home is set for a make over with the introduction of Sixteen Livable LHA Design Elements which include Severn Core Design Features.

These Voluntary LHA Design Performance Elements can be applied to all New detached and Semi-detached houses, Townhouses and Terraces and New Apartment Dwellings.

Features of Livable Design Elements 'Livability' are a step free front door you can easily wheel a push chair through; Internal doors and corridors that facilitate comfortable and unimpeded movement between spaces; A hobless step-free shower recess; A handrail on one side of any stairway; A toilet on the ground floor for easy access and Reinforced walls around the toilet, shower and bath to support the safe installation of grabrails at a later date

Livability creates a sense of Wellbeing for everyone especially pregnant mums, young families with kids, as well as people with sports or traumatic injuries.

Livable Housing Design also works for Australians with Disabilities, reduces stress on Australia's 2.6 million strong army of unpaid carers and caters for the needs of an ageing society by promoting homes better suited to seniors.

We are proud to participate in this ground breaking initiative as an Assessor for Livable Housing Australia, which will see Livability features in new homes performance rated with the Silver, Gold and Platinum LHA Quality Mark.

The LHA Quality Mark is set to become a trusted measure of livability for consumers and the housing Industry.

Obvius Access will help campaign for Livable Design Features in our New Homes. It is an investment that makes both economic and social sense. It also offers peace of mind and wellbeing to all.
