Future Proofing Private Residences with a Home Lift
Two of the biggest challenges facing British society are an ageing population and the climate crisis. The national census in 2021 showed that 24.4% of the UK population is now aged 60 or over – that’s almost a quarter of the country. As climate change continues to escalate, local and national government, developers and architects are under increasing pressure to reduce the carbon footprint of construction by focusing on retrofitting existing housing stock or designing new build properties that are future-proofed for the long term.

The Lifetime Homes standard introduced in 1991, now replaced by Building Regulations M, lists 16 design criteria including the installation of a platform home lift, or space to include one at a later date in order to future-proof a residential property.

This CPD explains the definition of a platform home lift, and the regulations that govern installation and safety. It outlines the different models on the market, their benefits and approximate costs. It includes details about maintenance, sustainability credentials and five different case studies that have incorporated different types of home lift.
