DBA provides access consultancy services for residential projects to ensure that standards for accessibility (inclusive design) are considered from concept stage and form an essential part of design principles.
Recent changes in legislation (Part M), government planning policy (including promotion of Lifetime Homes and Wheelchair Housing Standards) and housing policy (London Wide initiative -to provide low cost housing) have all sought to promote inclusive design within housing schemes.
DBA has researched the potential for reconciling differing residential access standards. This enables the practice to make informed judgements with regards to design proposals.
DBA prepares Access Statements to support housing planning applications and building control submissions.
