Retirement and Aged Care

Fire Safety Value

Retirement and aged care facilities serve as accommodation for the elderly with staff serving their needs. It is essential that the fire safety and egress design of these buildings is maintained to a high and safe standard, particularly as the main occupants of these facilities are elderly.

Risk Profile

Security in Aged Care is essential to ensure that our elderly population can live in peace without fear for their personal safety. Reliable security design for Aged Care premises protects elderly residents and their carers, and can also serve to monitor for neglect and abuse.

Our Fire Experience

Lote has been involved in the design and development of various residential aged care facilities. The specialised sectors Lote provides further assists clients in tackling technical issues encountered such as specialised fire engineering solutions, passive fire protections services, master fire strategy plans for staged works as well as development of evacuation plans.

Our Security Experience

Lote has worked with Aged Care developers across a variety of projects, large and small, to ensure that elderly residents and their carers are protected from crime. As previously mentioned, these measures also assist in combating neglect and abuse, a topic we have written about in our newsletter, Lote Notes.
