Grocon Commits To Livable Housing Guidelines


Australia's largest privately owned development company 

Grocon is the first Australian developer to commit to building all future residential developments to meet the national Livable Housing Design Guidelines.

Livable Housing Australia (LHA) recommends the inclusion of key easy living features that aim to make homes easier and safer to use for all occupants including: people with disabilities, ageing Australians, people with temporary injuries, and families with young children.

“The ultimate test of design excellence is a building’s ability to remain relevant. Designing residential apartments that meet the changing needs of all of us throughout our lives is, in our view, an essential component of that relevance and points to functional brilliance,” says Grocon’s CEO, Carolyn Viney.

The commitment to livable design will be attractive to the ageing baby boomer population, with 62 per cent of all falls occurring in the home, costing the Australian public $1.8 billion a year.

“Grocon’s commitment to build all future residential developments to meet our livability standards sets the new benchmark for the industry.”
