A toolkit has been launched in Northern Ireland (April 2014) that aims to help disabled and older people visualise and discuss proposed housing adaptations and aims to streamline the adaptations process.
This toolkit provides best practice guidance for housing adaptations design, inter-agency communications and the provision of minor housing adaptations
in Northern Ireland. It has been developed through cross sector collaborative working with disabled people, occupational therapists and housing designers/providers.
See in particular Chapter 6 (Space Standards and Design) and Chapter 7 (Standard Specification Templates)
