There are 13.3 million disabled people in the UK and many other people living with a condition or circumstances that mean they need specialist adaptations to make their home, school or workplace safe and suitable for their needs. At Pure Construction, we offer advice and building services to help transform homes and businesses into accessible spaces. We work with both individuals, looking to create an environment adapted to their individual needs, and organisations working to better welcome the general public. Here are a few of the scenarios we can assist with.
1. Renovating your business
Meeting government standards is essential, but they may not go far enough to meet the needs of your customers and staff. Let Pure Construction help you find the best way to make your business accessible. This includes installing disabled toilets, ramps or lifts, as well as less common facilities such as adult changing tables, quiet corners, and easy-to-use door handles.
2. Preparing your home for the future
Whether you’re already dealing with a degenerative condition or are simple looking ahead to old age, we can help you adapt the home you love so that you can stay in it as long as possible. Working together, we create a flexible plan that lets you enjoy your home fully today, knowing that adaptations such as a stair lift, accessible shower, or ground floor bedroom are ready should you need them.
3. Making a family home that works for everyone
In the UK, 1 in 15 children has some form of disability. Many families benefit from specialist adaptations to their home, whether that’s creating a wheelchair accessible kitchen that lets a teenager cook independently or a safe, sensory garden where a child with Autism can play. By working with families one-on-one, Pure Construction create homes that help every member of the family thrive.
4. Improving educational spaces
A long tradition of education means that many school, college and university buildings in the UK predate modern adaptive technologies. By finding creative solutions, we make educational facilities more accessible and inclusive. Working closely with educators, we maintain the character of historic buildings while ensuring that students have the access they need, whether that’s widening 19th century doorways to allow modern wheelchairs in or creating specialist teaching rooms adapted for students with visual, audio or learning disabilities.
5. Making space for care
According to government data, 1 in 5 people in the UK reports having a disability. This means that there are around 13 million people who have a condition which causes substantial difficult with day to day activities. Many need daily care, and in addition to professional carers, there are around 5 million people providing care informally (unpaid) for loved ones, friends or family. By adapting the family home, we’re able to support carers in ways large and small. For example, adding an extra bedroom may allow for respite overnight care, while a bathroom hoist can prevent back pain and improve safety. In each case, we work with you to make sure your needs are met.
