Disability Discrimination Act 1995

The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 places a requirement on building owners to ensure that Disabled Persons Access audits are undertaken on specific types of buildings and that, where practical, alterations are made to accommodate the requirements of disabled people.

The Act provides a definition of disability; "A disability is a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long term adverse effect on a person's ability to carry out normal day to day activities".

It follows therefore, that disabled people can have impaired hearing, sight, as well as mobility issues, all of which should be taken into consideration when preparing a DDA access audit.

Chandlers Building Surveyors aim is to provide practical advice to enable cost effective measures to be implemented in buildings.

The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005

Fire Exit

This act places a requirement on owners of specific types of building to prepare a Fire Risk Assessment of their premises, taking into account compartmentation, means of escape, managerial issues etc.

Experienced chartered building control surveyors at Chandlers Building Surveyors Ltd are able to survey your premises, produce a practical assessment and make cost effective recommendation of how the requirements for a Fire Risk Assessment can be properly implemented.

In our experience minor changes to management issues and cost effective changes to building structures can provide meaningful improvements to properties in the event of fire.
