Possum’s Building Consultancy service provides architects, developers, housing associations, schools, hospices, hospitals and residential care facilities with advice on how best to fit Electronic Assistive Technology (EAT) infrastructure into new builds and redevelopments of existing premises.

Drawing on years of experience, the team can identify what provision needs to be made and where in order to accommodate the technology, seamlessly. For example, EAT needs special wiring; extra allowances will have to be made for additional clearances above doors and windows; and there will be issues over the positioning of power points. If the thinking isn’t done on the drawing board, mistakes can be expensive to rectify.

The Building Consultancy team supports architects and contractors to ensure that those expensive mistakes aren’t made, and to ensure that EAT not only works well, but is incorporated into new facilities unobtrusively and attractively. The team can advise from day one, it can provide a planning service, and it can project manage the whole EAT installation if desired.

EAT makes life easy for disabled people and their carers: Possum’s Building Consultancy division makes it easy to incorporate that technology into new buildings. Call the team today on 01296 461000.
