Accessibility Auditing and Compliance Consulting

 

 

An accessibility report may be required by a council as part of a building consent application

When altering/upgrading  an existing building or changing the use of it, the New Zealand Building Act requires that the Building Consent Authority is satisfied that, after the alteration, the building will comply as nearly as is reasonably practicable.

We provide Accessibility Reports for Building Consent Documentation packages.

 

Typically an “Accessibility Report” will cover matters such as: door widths, surface finishes, toilet layout & numbers, lifts, handrails, car parking and signage.

The purpose of an accessibility report is to give an overview of the proposed design or existing building against the requirements of the relevant NZ Building Act sections, Building Code clauses/solutions and standards. (NZS 4121:2001)
