You might think that by meeting Building Regulations a building will automatically meet the requirements of disabled people under the Equality Act, but you’d be wrong.

The Equality Act is concerned just as much with information and customer services as it is with physical environment and facilities.

We appraise building designs from the earliest stage so that inclusivity is built in from the outset rather than being an afterthought.

‘Retro-fitting’ solutions and adaptations can be disruptive and costly so ensuring you get accessibility right from the outset can save you valuable time and money as well as meeting the needs of all potential users from the day your building opens.
