Ageing in place

Ageing in Place – Accessible Design.

Designing for ageing communities goes beyond the construction of a comfortable environment. At its core, it’s about creating a world that is effortlessly accessible. This goes hand in hand with the principle of ageing in place, which seeks to enable seniors to live in their own homes safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.

FMG’s Structural and Civil engineers are proficient in delivering inclusive solutions that fulfill the daily needs of our ageing population. Their awareness and innovation ensure that these requirements are considered early in your project, amplifying the useability of your development.

One significant aspect of ageing in place is wheelchair accessibility. Whether it’s wide doorways, ramps, stepless entries, or spaces that allow easy manoeuvring, anticipating these needs during the initial phase of design allows us to create spaces that don’t just look good but work effectively for all. Aesthetic appeal needs not be sacrificed for functional robustness.

Inclusive design is a strategy that morphs the environment to suit everyone, irrespective of age, disability, or other factors that contribute to decreased mobility. FMG’s engineers instill this principle into every part of the design process, from stepless entries and handrails to ensuring Design for Dignity guidelines are implemented.

Designing for ageing communities offers an opportunity to create an inclusive, accessible world for all of us.
