Grampians Therapeutic Community will lead to improved support for regional clients and families seeking drug treatment pathways.

Lighting design

With the safety of both staff and residents paramount, Designplan lumainires were selected to ensure there were no light fittings in areas the residents had access to that may serve as a potential ligature point for self-harm.

The Designplan luminaires selected are also impact, water and dust resistant, therefore able to be used in wet areas and exterior locations, thus ensuring continuity of lighting design throughout the facility.

Designplan

Anti Ligature RDL Downlights for patient rooms, quiet rooms, and outdoor dining areas – residential spaces
Tuscan Antiligature for treatment rooms (including Gym, art room, group therapy rooms)
Impact resistant Basilica for all external walls
Bedhead AL installed over all beds for safe individual operation by the resident
