The Access Manual: Designing, Auditing and Managing Inclusive Built Environments by Ann Sawyer

This manual covers the design, improvement, maintenance and management of accessible environments. It shows you how to provide and run buildings, services, and employment facilities to enable independent and convenient use by everyone. The Access Manual was first published in November 2003 and has been used by architects and facilities managers needing to meet the requirements of new legislation in 2004. It was well received by design, management, access, and health professionals. This is a fast-moving area and there are now several additional pieces of legislation and guidance central to inclusive design and making buildings accessible to all. This 3rd edition follows the same structure and approach and updates three main areas: * The Equality Act 2010 * Building Regulations: Approved Documents to Parts M (2013) and K (2013) * British Standards: amendment and updating of BS8300 The authors have also updated the material on access auditing, providing additional examples and sample access audit reports and access statements. With its comprehensive information on standards, legislation and good practice, The Access Manual: designing, auditing and managing inclusive built environments, 3rd edition ensures you can: * be fully aware of the issues involved in accessibility and inclusive design * understand your legal obligations and the guidance available * commission access audits * create and manage an access improvement programme * maintain accessibility in buildings and working practices * understand access issues in the design of new buildings
