Landing. mm minimum. mm minimum lifetime homes design guide lifetim. e h o m es design gu ide ihs bre Press. Four architects have contributed to this design guide: practice experienced in designing Lifetime Homes, with a large portfolio of Lifetime Homes designs. Lifetime Homes Standards consist of 16 design criteria which create Fittings. The following guide seeks to provide clarification on Approved.
The most significant change from the non-compliant example is that the footprint of the building has been altered to become a narrow frontage. The recessessed entrance reduces the footprint but increases the complexity of the design and therfore may effect construction cost.
Also the staircase has been moved away from the centre of the plan and the living and dining rooms are combined which may influence the sale value.
However the narrow front design allows for a more efficient plot layout when used in a terrace. This example of a small block of flats would typically be from three upto six storeys high This example has flats which are representative of typical housebuilder unit sizes.
Unit Areas: The common area is a relatively generous size with a large service risers core. Notes on construction: This example was designed to be constructed using a volumetric construction system but it would also be commonly be built using traditional masonary construction. For the purpose of costing the following construction methods can be assumed: Beam and Block floors, pitched roofs and pre-cast stairs.
AL 10X Scale: Summary of changes: SQM In this example the two bed unit does not need to increase in size to accomodate the requirements. The one bed unit increases in depth as a result of the larger bathroom.
The communal area does not increase in size as a result of the larger lift. General Notes: This example of a small block of flats would typically be three storeys to six storeys This example has flats which are nominally smaller than the previous example with a very efficient layout in the communal areas. In this example both the one and two bed units increase in size as a result of incorporating the LTH requirements. The communal area also has to increase in size to accomodate a larger lift shaft to accomodate the x car size.
Appendix Lifetimes Homes Criteria The following text taken from www. Please refer to the website for further details and frequently asked questions 1 Car Parking Width Where there is car parking adjacent to the home, it should be capable of enlargement to attain mm width. Stated specifications and dimensions required to meet criterion: The general provision for a car parking space is mm width.
If an additional mm width is not provided at the outset, there must be provision e. It is preferable to have a level approach. However, where the topography prevents this, a maximum gradient of 1: Paths should be a minimum of mm width.
A turning circle of mm diameter or a turning ellipse of mm x mm is required. The drainage provision for a future shower should be provided in all dwellings.
As Criterion 2. For dwellings with three or more bedrooms, or on one level , the WC must be fully accessible. A wheelchair user should be able to close the door from within the closet and achieve side transfer from a wheelchair to at least one side of the WC.
There must be at least mm clear space from the front of the WC bowl. The shower provision must be within the closet or adjacent to the closet.
Houses of two or fewer bedrooms In small two-bedroom houses where the design has failed to achieve the above fully accessible standard WC, the Part M standard WC will meet this standard. Stated specifications and dimensions required to meet the criterion: The threshold up-stand should not exceed 15mm. Doorway clear opening width mm Wall reinforcements if required should be located between mm and mm from the floor. Most timber trusses today are capable of taking a hoist and tracking.
Technological advances in hoist design mean that a straight run is no longer a requirement. Additional good practice recommendations: Although there is not a requirement for a turning circle in bathrooms, sufficient space should be provided so that a wheelchair user can use the bathroom.
People should be able to see out of the window whilst seated. Wheelchair users should be able to operate at least one window in each room.
Note on doors For the purpose of pricing please allow for the following Lifetime Homes compliant doors: Entrance doors: Internal Door: Internal Door when not a head-on approach and corridor width less than mm: This applies to all rooms, including the kitchen and bathroom.
