Disabled Access Audit

A professional surveying service providing key information for assessing building compliance against current access standards. 

Disables Access

The Disabled Access Audit

To ensure that physical barriers to access are identified, we have developed our own survey DDA Audit Checklist. From this we will identify courses of action that are reasonably appropriate under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995.

Data is gathered using hand held electronic gathering tools that provide data consistency between surveyors and have in-built checking and productivity functionality.
