Inclusive Isolation Environments

Social exclusion is now mainstream.

To manage this successfully it is necessary to embrace Inclusive Isolation Environments. These, like Inclusive Social Distancing Environments, operate slightly differently to Inclusive Environments and are defined as:

  • An Inclusive Isolation Environment is defined as an inclusive environment which contains the fewest possible, unacceptable circumstances and barriers.

An Inclusive Isolation Environment is defined as an inclusive environment which contains the fewest possible, unacceptable circumstances and barriers.

Self-Isolation and Social Distancing measures brought on by the recent Covid-19 crisis have made social exclusion something that impacts on all of us. It is no longer the preserve of the vulnerable, disabled or minority groups of our world. Instead, anyone, anywhere can suffer from it simply because they are required to self-isolate.

Isolation Environments are primarily set around a domestic setting or the dwelling because that is where the majority of the time spent in isolation will occur. There will always be extreme difficulty in managing reasonable adjustments and equality in these environments, so it is necessary to be pragmatic about what can be achieved. It is impossible to make these environments perfect for everyone.

This can come in three parts:

  1. Remediation to an existing environment like a home.
  2. The modification to existing plans or perhaps with a build happening at a later RIBA stage.
  3. To the design and building phase itself. Where Planners are reviewing what is going to be built or an architect or construction specialist is drawing up a new dwelling.

Perito offers specialist consultancy services on how to help prepare inclusive isolation environments and to support with the change management that might be required to help staff, clients or consumers manage the environment itself.

Because of the nature of Covid-19 like disease, the potential for a second or third waves, regular seasonal recurrences or simply the emerging threats posed by zoonotic diseases it is essential that organisations, government and individuals understand and manage the risk now, with the sort of urgency and resolve that might usually occur under wartime conditions.

Part of this risk management strategy is to start planning for and building in measures and also design methods that will help to create isolation environments. This will not only save lives going forward by also help to mitigate the catastrophic commercial losses caused by pandemics like Covid-19.

Perito can help you and your organisation create inclusive Isolation Environments which will help people live and work under restrictions caused by pandemics and emerging global threats like climate change.

Preparation for ongoing management of the current global emergency and future crisis where people will have to live and work under isolated conditions is essential and all businesses and organisations should be investigating their requirements as a bare minimum. For businesses and organisations which want to continue to develop, innovate and help their employees and community in a post Covid-19 world then the implementation of Isolation Environments to some degree is an absolute pre-requisite.

We help organisations know how easy it can be to create the most amazing inclusive environments.
