Jasmin's new home
Martin Locke Homes is proud to have been the chosen building partner for Youngcare Australia's first specially designed and built accommodation for young people with high care needs in Townsville.
Independence and dignity by design
Youngcare is a not-for-profit organisation creating choice, independence and dignity for young people with high care disabilities by providing High Care Housing, grants for equipment and home modifications and support through a national phone line.
This project is part of the planned integrated housing community at Brookstone on the Park in Condon. The first stage included one two-bedroom unit and one three-bedroom unit including carer's room.
It is fully accessible for high care needs and equipped with the latest in home automation technology and equipment.
lEADERS IN ACCESSIBLE CONSTRUCTION
Martin Locke Homes is a leader in accessible home design and construction in North Queensland.
Working together with our valued trade and supply partners including Electrotek Queensland and Moduline North Queensland we were able to make a difference to Jasmin's lifestyle by including automated doors, custom accessible and adjustable joinery and innovative electrical and lighting automation.
Our team works together with organisations such as Yumba-Meta LTD and Youngcare Australia to deliver homes that meet SDA and disability code standards.
We're also passionate about ensuring every home we build meets a minimum accessibility standard including:
- Step-free access into the home from the street
- No steps throughout the home including our signature rebated alfresco sliding door
- Larger step-free showers with tiled seats
- Wider hallways and doors
- Addition frame noggins to accommodate future grab rails.
