Assisted Living Access for All by Hafele

When planning to build a new home, most people anticipate spending a number of years, if not decades, living in it. Regardless of the length of stay, new homes are more often than not designed to accommodate changing needs over its lifetime. Consideration should be given to the occupants of the dwelling that one is designing for. This is perhaps even more important when designing for people with a disability. It is imperative that conversations at the design table should focus on the broader vision or amenity of the residents, whilst ensuring that all the key stakeholders are consulted.

The focus of this module will be on fully accessible and high physical support domiciles. Throughout this module, we will be exploring the complex housing needs of disabled Australians.

  1. Document the special needs for disability accommodation 3, 3.1
  2. List design options for assisted living residences 4, 4.1
  3. Describe the unique requirements and guidelines required for disability housing 3, 3.4

Looking to the Future of Learning Spaces by Polytec

The idea that our physical environment has the capacity to shape us, and therefore, that a building has the ability to powerfully influence its users is one of the main tenets of architecture and design. Teachers are at the forefront of education innovation and pedagogy. They are cognizant of the physical environments’ ability to ‘make or break’ creativity and stifle learning. This module creates a resource for architects and school planners to refer to for the construction of new learning environments or the renovation of existing learning environments.

  1. Discuss the primary Acoustic problems in education (AACA Competency 4.7).
  2. Describe material considerations to create inviting, inspiring spaces to enhance the learning experience (AACA Competency 3.2 and 3.1).

Sustainability in Design by Polytec

Environmentalists agree that nature provides the ideal model for sustainability.

Nature does not waste, it repurposes and recycles. Today’s fossil fuels account for some 87% of the world’s energy needs. In the modern world, buildings account for approximately 40% of energy consumption. This therefore makes buildings a crucial focus area in the efforts to reduce the use of fossil fuels.

By making the worlds building energy efficient, massive savings can be made to both energy costs and CO2 emissions.

  1. Describe where you would access sustainability and performance information for different products and materials. Design 3.1
  2. Discuss green building standards, labeling programs, and details to be include in specifications. Documentation 6.5
  3. Be able to describe the variables of building product selection that impact sustainability and occupant-tenant health, including efforts on productivity and comfort. Documentation 6.7
