Access Audits in London and the South East
Equality Act 2010 and the Building Regulations 2010
I carry out Access Audits across the built environment including commercial workplace / offices, hotels / leisure, large scale events spaces, colleges, schools, churches, parks, historic listed buildings and I can assist with National Lottery Heritage Fund applications.
I have carried out access audits for Haringey Council to help them successfully secure funding through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). Lordship Recreation Ground was awarded in excess of £4 million in Heritage Grants and Markfield Park was awarded in excess of £1.5 million.
How can I help you?
Level 1: Access Audit
A Level 1: Access Audit is a cost effective service which will provide you with a concise, text only summary of key recommendations for improvements to inclusivity and accessibility.
This low cost service will provide you with an overview of the accessibility of the external environment, building/s and the services you provide. I will walk around your premises with you, talking through any access issues which may arise. A short written summary of our discussions will then be prepared. You are very welcome to take your own detailed notes during the audit.
Level 2: Access Audit
A Level 2: Access Audit is a detailed photographic report and is useful if you require comprehensive recommendations backed up by current design guidance in the Building Regulations Approved Document K and M.
All recommendations will be cross referenced where relevant against current design criteria, including Approved Document K: Protection from falling, collision and impact, Approved Document M: Access to and use of buildings, the BS 8300: 2018 Codes of practice and any other relevant design guidance. Category or priority ratings will also be provided if required.
A Level 2: Access Audit will help inform design considerations for future refurbishment and building works.
