Our team of NRAC Access Consultants have undertaken access audits for many Housing Associations and bodies. Access audits for housing associations have included offices, sheltered schemes, communal flat blocks and more.
Sheltered housing schemes are there to provide a service. The residents are there to ensure they are able to live in comfort and remain independent in their later years. The problem is many of the sheltered housing schemes up and down the county are in desperate need of updating to comply with the latest accessibility standards.
Our housing access audits provide a simple solution to identify the areas of weakness. The first step is to examine the current provisions and then begin to focus on what is required in order to bring the properties up to standard. When making any plans on improvements it is vital that the access is properly examined and reasonable developments are created that will ensure planning permission is granted.
With the help, support and guidance of our access consultants each step of the process will be fully monitored. The consultants will evaluate the premises, produce understandable reports that can be used by you, the architects and designers. We can provide additional support on how to meet the demands of the latest accessibility standards and improve your properties in the most efficient way necessary. If planning permission is required we are able to work closely with you to help prevent any refusals or delays in the process.
Housing access audits will ensure that the residents will be provided with a decent quality of life. If you would like to work closely with our consultants to achieve excellent results and improve accessibility we are ready to help.
