Meriton Group, Australia’s largest apartment developer will collaborate with Livable Housing Australia (LHA) to promote best practice benchmarks for liveable design.

Meriton’s General Manager, Peter Spira said that Meriton Group has entered into a Platinum Corporate Partnership with Livable Housing Australia to support LHA’s commitment to universal standards of safety, comfort and design excellence.

The hallmark of good apartment design is its ability to adapt to the changing circumstances and mobility of its residents through every stage of life; by adopting the Livable Housing Design Guidelines in their apartment projects, the Meriton Group is providing buyers an assurance of quality that they can trust.

LHA’s Executive Director, Amelia Starr says Meriton’s commitment is another step on the road towards industry adoption of the Livable Housing Design Guidelines. Meriton joins a growing list of Corporate Partners, which include the Australian Institute of Architects, Property Council of Australia, Lend Lease, Master Builders Australia and Stockland.

Ms Starr explains that many leaders in the property and construction industry are embracing the guidelines because they are convinced about how these simple and straightforward design features make a home easier to live in, and ultimately easier to sell.

The Property Council of Australia’s Chief Executive Officer, Ken Morrison congratulated Meriton Group on its leadership.
