The Access Audit Handbook is an invaluable tool for auditing the accessibility of buildings and services, and for writing reports in appropriate formats in the content of current legislation, funding requirements and best practice in building management.
This book offers straightforward advice about undertaking access audits and the various report formats to best communicate recommendations. The practical guidance is supported by a range of up to date and informative case studies, and a new, authoritative worked example of a successful report based on a real-life access audit. An updated checklist for audits is included in the appendix at the back of the book, and purchasers of the book can download the checklist from a website as PDF or Word files.
Also new to the second edition are updates to the legislation chapter – including guidance on the Equality Act, the Building Regulations Part M 2013, and BS8300 – and an additional section covering the current planning policy framework, community engagement and user involvement. Designed to complement the best-selling and recently updated Designing for Accessibility, the new Access Audit Handbook is an indispensable tool for all those involved in access reporting for buildings.
