Among the strengths of our firm are an awareness of the special needs of individuals with a wide spectrum of abilities and an aptitude to create functional, accessible environments for all users. Residential scale quality has been the strength of our successful outdoor settings for patients, their visitors, and staff in inviting, healing environments.
Vertechs Design has initiated and conducted original research in the design of outdoor environments for special populations, with the resulting findings documented in numerous publications. The concepts developed in the firm’s studies form the basis of our design principles and have been implemented in a variety of project types, including long-term care facilities, children’s treatment centres, psychiatric, rehabilitation, complex continuing care and acute care hospitals. The firm has worked on over 100 long-term care homes and more than 50 hospitals.
