Stage 1B – Provisional Compliance (Design Compliance)
Stage 1B includes a desktop audit of the plans, which is an effective way to ensure any elements that do not meet the guidelines are identified and can be altered before building.
(*Note if your project is already at this phase we can incorporate our design consultation into phase B)
The Livable Housing Australia Design Guidelines provide specific design elements that a house must comply with in order to be certified to one of the Livable housing levels, and achieve the LHA mark.
Based on these elements requesting us to complete a desktop audit of the plans is an effective way to ensure any elements that do not meet the guidelines are identified and can be altered before building.
By identifying these issues at the planning phase it reduces the chance of costly modifications being required post build, or being unable to achieve the LHA certification due to non compliant elements than cannot be altered.
Stage 1B Includes:
- Updated desktop assessment of full working plans against LHA/SDA design elements
- Meeting with relevant stakeholders (up to 1 hour) if required
- Identify areas of design which do not comply, provide advice to achieve compliance as required
- Supply of provisional quality mark for use in marketing or to meet contracts
Quality mark is valid for 2 years or 30 days from occupancy certificate
