The WIDA are a charitable organisation and provide respite care for the intellectually disabled in Waterford. This complex project involved working closely with the association to develop a brief, choose a suitable site and work within a very strict budget. Two single storey buildings were developed on a landlocked greenfield site within a residential area. The brief required the construction of accommodation (a seven bedroom house) and a respite day centre which includes an 8M swimming pool with hydrotherapy facilities, and a landscaped play area. The building was completed to the highest possible standard within programme and budget and provides a fully disabled-accessible facility within a relaxed and enjoyable living environment for the users and their carers.
