Access Audits

An access audit or accessibility gap analysis is the first step towards improving accessibility in a built environment. It is an important tool to identify infrastructural barriers that may make the building or facility less favourable to use by persons with disabilities. The access audit provides a baseline assessment on which access solutions are suggested. 

The scope of an audit includes assessment of approach to the building, parking areas, access route to the main entrance, pedestrian pathways, entrance in to the building, internal components of the building & periphery, toilets, signage, level changes through ramps or lifts etc. 

In case of street design or transportation systems, the audit covers the pedestrian networks, street crossings/ intersections, kerb-ramps, traffic signals, table tops, pedestrian islands, access to transport nodes & seamless connectivity, accessibility to & within the rolling stock and related services on an equal footing with others. 

The access audits are done keeping in mind the needs of all users.  We specialise in conducting architectural audits of buildings, walkability audits, street audits, transportation audits (audits of rolling stock, aircrafts, buses, taxis, para transit mediums etc).  Follwing built environment is our focus :-

Access Awareness / Audit Training

Govt. of India has published Guidelines on Accessibility in built environment that prescribe mandatory design requirements for all public buildings. National Building Code 2016 details out specific accessibility provisions in buildings open to public - whether govt or privately owned, including housing. Often the practicing professionals (architects, interior designers, engineers) are not well acquainted with these requirements, hence the need of such training for professionals. As these requirements are mandatory, students of architecture, urban planning, interior design, civil engineering, rehabilitation professionals or NGOs working with people with disabilities also greatly benefit from such /similar training. Length & Content of the Training programs can be customised keeping in mind the educational background of the trainees and specific expectations.
