About the SDA Homes:

  • Each participant bedroom contains spacious private ensuite bathrooms.
  • Tracking infrastructure will be incorporated where required.
  • Each home contains Onsight Overnight Assistance (OOA) facilities for staff with a separate staff bathroom.
  • The floor plan includes an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area, and a separate breakout room or retreat.
  • There is ample storage and parking provision, and good sized garages.
  • There are outdoor alfresco areas and gardens at the rear of each dwelling, which can be kept separate to each dwelling or combined into a larger shared space.
  • At this stage we are proposing that one of the homes will be larger than the other two, with larger bathrooms and bedrooms to meet the needs of participants with High Physical Support needs.
  • Fire sprinkler systems will be installed in the homes targeted to clients who have physical disabilities requiring wheelchair use (typically clients at Fully Accessible and High Physical Support level).
  • The homes will be spacious, contain high ceilings, large living spaces, high quality fixtures & fittings, extra wide corridors and doorways, internal impact walls built to 1200mm height throughout, adjustable benchtops and island, ample storage spaces, automated entry doors and slip resistant high quality floor coverings.
  • The homes will be energy efficient with a minimum 8 star energy rating and will include double glazing (windows), rooftop solar 6 kilowatt solar power units, and R4 ceiling insulation.
