Ability SDA is committed to designing adaptable accommodation to offer independence and freedom to people with disabilities. Ability SDA developed its design process in collaboration with the Summer Foundation, a not for profit group that advocates for accessible housing. Ability SDA’s thorough design and build process involves experts in design, construction and accessibility.

Site Selection

Sites are selected to meet a need for accommodation service, connection to community, proximity to transport and shops, solar access, and suitable topography.

Ability SDA works with the best accessibility consultants, architects, engineers and transport advisors to create warm and inviting living spaces that feature the latest technology and purpose-built conveniences.
All homes are architecturally designed with an emphasis on universal design, a design principle that ensures apartments can be meet the needs of all people regardless of their age, size, ability or disability. Apartments comply with the Australian Building Code and Liveable Housing Australia’s Platinum Level standards.
