What is SDA? 

​​On 28th October 2019, Minister for the NDIS, Stuart Robert, released the Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) Design Standard - landmark guidelines that will spur a new era of housing construction and enhancement for Australians with disability. The SDA Design Standard will guide architects, builders and the community as they look for new and better ways to build specialist housing for people with disability.

These guidelines, released together with the SDA Innovation Plan and the Limited Cost Assumptions Review, put participants at the centre of the design approach. They will make it easier for eligible participants to access high quality specialist disability housing, while also providing much-needed certainty to the market. 

​When the SDA market reaches full coverage the NDIS is expected to assist 28,000 Australians with disability through SDA - representing 6.1 per cent of NDIS participants. It is anticipated the total annual payments for SDA is expected to be approximately $700m per year.



About the SDA Design Standard

The Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) Design Standard that Bruce Bromley was a co-author of providesclarity to SDA housing design requirements to be enrolled and gives providers the flexibility to respond to participant needs and preferences. 

It sets out detailed design requirements that will be incorporated into newly built SDA, seeking enrolment under the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

​This standard has four categories of SDA design which are set out in the SDA Rules:​

  • Improved Liveability 
  • Robust
  • Fully Accessible
  • High Physical Support

​Improved clarity of design requirements will add to provider confidence and surety of compliance. Ultimately, this will strengthen the SDA market. 

Why attend?

The SDA Design Standard will:​

  • lead the way that architects, builders and the community view how housing for people with a disability should be built
  • ensure participants continue to have access to high-quality housing models
  • give providers the flexibility to respond to participant needs and preferences.

​The NDIA is determined to see this growing market build. It wants investors, developers and existing providers to grow their confidence in SDA.
