Designplan’s Australian sister company, Eagle Lighting, were appointed to provide lighting for The Grampians Therapeutic Community – the first state-funded purpose-built alcohol and drug residential service in Victoria.
The facility houses 20 dedicated residential rehab beds, taking in 80 patients a year. The facility will lead to reduced waiting times and improved treatment outcomes for clients and families. Grampians Therapeutic Community will lead to improved support for regional clients and families seeking drug treatment pathways.
With the safety of both staff and residents paramount, Designplan luminaires 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
Anti-ligature RDL Downlights were selected for patient rooms, quiet rooms, and outdoor dining areas. Tuscan anti-ligature was chosen for treatment rooms including the gym, art room and group therapy rooms. The impact resistant Basilica was specified for all external walls and the Bedhead AL installed over all beds.
