    Architectural Plan Design Reviews to BS 8300

    Inclusive Design Reviews

    If you're at the early design stage of a project, I can carry out a comprehensive inclusive design review of the proposed scheme.

    When carrying out an architectural inclusive design review, I carefully assess drawing packages, including the specification of fixed interior elements, signage and F,F&E, against the design guidance in the Building Regulations Approved Document K: Protection from falling, collision and impact and Approved Document M: Access to and use of buildings. Ideally, an access consultant would be involved during the early RIBA work stages and throughout the design process through to occupation.


    I will also advise on the client's duties in relation to the Equality Act 2010 and how these relate to the Building Regulations.

    For clients who would like a higher level of detailed assessment, I am able to cross reference the design proposals against the current versions of the British Standards BS 8300 and advise of any recommendations;

    BS 8300-1:2018 Design of an accessible and inclusive built environment - Part 1: External environment - Code of practice

    BS 8300-2:2018 Design of an accessible and inclusive built environment - Part 2: Buildings - Code of practice.


    An inclusive design review is a cost effective way to help ensure that the finished built scheme will be inclusive to everyone and will be accessible.
