Help With Building Control Access Issues

Access All Areas provides valuable assistance with meeting your planning requirements and current building compliance. We provide valuable help with Building Control access issues and disabled access.  Helping Building Control and local authorities to fully understand the true requirements of the Equality Act. This enables you to get plans signed off that previously required difficult to meet, unreasonable requests.

The requirements of the Equality Act are that you should make a “reasonable adjustment” in meeting tBuilding control disabled accesshe needs of people with disabilities. Sadly many Building Control staff have no access officer within their department or even employed by the Council that Building Control are working. They often simply quote Part M of the Building Regulations as a 100% must comply with with no knowledge or understand the important of reasonable adjustment under the Act.

This approach if not challenged can cost you as a business a great deal of money, often running into many thousands of pounds as well as severely delaying your building project.

Since 2003 we have assisted many businesses that have struggled to meet unreasonable requests by Building Control including the installation of unneeded passenger lifts when all disabled facilities are offered on the ground floor, hard to meet ramp gradients, additional disabled WC’s and much more. We work with you and prepare access statements that satisfy Building Regulations and work with them so they can understand the issues and assist with coming to a reasonable and financially viable solution while still providing full disabled access and egress needs.

Contact us for help with Building Control access issues and let us work with you to identify your actual requirements and highlight them in a way that Building Control understand.

Disability Discrimination Claim Assistance

Access All Areas provides disability discrimination claim assistance to all UK businesses, hotels and shops.  The best overall way of avoiding a case of disability discrimination claim being brought against you as a service provider is to address your access and egress issues before they become a problem. This is the aim of our “reasonable adjustment” access audit service. However not all businesses have undertaken this level of protection and many eventually find themselves facing a claim of disability discrimination against them by a disabled person.

There are a multitude of reasons why disability discrimination would result in a claim Disability Discrimination Claim image

We can assist you by advising on whether or not we believe the claimant has a viable case against you as well as assisting with making “reasonable adjustments to help reduce the risk of a further disability discrimination claim occurring in the future as well as settling any ongoing claim.

We have assisted many service providers, legal establishments and recently a great increase in “no win – no fee” lawyers acting on behalf of disabled people that rightly or wrongly feel they have a discrimination claim that has caused them distress or injury.

Disabled people have a right to receive the same level of service or treatment as a non-disabled person, if that cannot be achieved then a reasonable adjustment to how you provide your services must be made in order to prevent a disability discrimination claim. It may well be that you have made that reasonable adjustment and you have no case to answer, we can help you by investigating what you do have in place.

When it is evident that discrimination has occurred we will advise you on what we believe to be the best course of action to avoid a costly court case as well as a serious blow to the reputation of your business.
