The audit involves a full site survey of a facility, a comparative report between our findings on site and the relevant performance standards, a series of practical cost effective recommendations as required to bring the facility into substantial compliance with Building Regulations. The access audit document is considered a practical tool which would form a basis of reference in the process of endeavouring to achieve compliance with the requirements of Section 25 of the Disability Act 2005.
