Alessandro Caruso, ACA's co-founder, suffered an almost fatal motorbike crash in 1994. Consequently he spent 6 months confined to a hospital bed, in an unfit for purpose, noisy and clinical environment. Thereafter, upon recovery and grateful for the second chance, Alessandro was inspired. As a result, he promised himself to design better building environments for any user group. Accordingly, ACA's mission is to create healthier and happier buildings for everybody. Learning about our Clients' priorities and research is crucial to our design approach, based on continuous learning and innovation.
ACA's approach is to look at the lifespan of critical elements of a building. This includes structure and vertical circulation, engineering services, internal layouts and partitioning; grouping activities with similar technical requirements; positioning lifts and staircases so that they do not affect future layouts; using standard and universal room sizes and embracing sustainable technologies. Through our integrated and open approach we learn and work with residents, commissioners, the wider community and all important user groups.
The ACA team has extensive clinical understanding and is a specialist in the health and social sector, having designed in excess of 350 facilities. Accordingly, we work for several NHS Trusts, Private Health and Social Care Providers and Registered Social Landlords. For example, we design a range of Residential Care facilities including: Extra Care Housing; Dementia, Nursing and Care Homes; Respite Care and Intermediate Care Units. Additionally, we design: GP surgeries and Health Centres; Pharmacies; Community Hospitals; Outpatient Departments; Vascular Units; Haematology Departments; Diagnostics; Intermediate Care Units; Critical Care (HDU/ICU and PICU); Operating Theatres and Acquired Brain Injury Units.
