Desktop audits

Desktop audits are performed on concept, draft and detailed drawings. Utilising the latest technological programs ensures accuracy and compliance in attained.

Access Audits are undertaken to ensure accessible environments are provided where everyone can participate equally.

They examine all relevant site and building features. They detail how these may restrict access, and also suggest appropriate solutions. In the process, we always bear in mind the nature and size of your business, and consider what would be ‘reasonable adjustments’ for your budget and particular building.

This sets out the work involved and indicates the level of priority for each task. This helps you budget and plan for current and anticipated changes, so you can make informed decisions.
