Assessment Process

 

Our Silver, Gold and Platinum Design principles assist you to ensure that your home has been designed and built with livability in mind.

All qualified Industry Professionals such as architects, builders, builder designers, access consultants, occupational therapists and building surveyors that are registered and have professional insurance coverage can assess a home as meeting the LHA silver, gold or platinum level. 

Members of the public are encouraged to talk to the relevant professional association in relation to finding a qualified industry professional to assist in designing and building a livable home.

Where required by a government authority, an LHA Design Guideline Assessor may be required to certify the project. An LHA Design Guideline Assessor can be found at the 'Find an Assessor' tab above.
