Our clients had recently purchased a bungalow that had the potential to meet the accessibility and therapy needs of their son Jordan, who has cerebral palsy. The family’s next step was to extend and adapt the property.
Having been instructed by Jordan’s Deputy to assess the suitability of the property the family selected Steven Docker Associates to design and manage the project and we quickly got to work, consulting with them and other experts to understand their plans, ambitions for Jordan and to ensure all their family needs were met. The family were great to work with and were keen to create a home they could be enabled by together, as a family, to support and inspire Jordan.
SDA’s management of the project included using a tender process to select a quality building contractor and deliver value for money. We also stayed in close contact with the family and the contractor throughout, ensuring smooth progress towards a timely completion.
Access-wise, our design included a self-contained extension for Jordan, with a specially equipped bedroom, en-suite bathroom, therapy room and utility room, as well as an adjacent carer’s bedroom and office/sitting room.
The existing living space was also refurbished and adapted to feature ceiling hoists, assistive technology and a new home security system, offering Jordan and his family peace of mind and confidence when it came to safety and ease of moving around the home and using the new features.
Outside, we made the large garden more accessible and fun, with level paths and a landscaped outdoor therapy and play area for Jordan to enjoy with the rest of the family.
