Disability Access and Inclusion

Interpreting Access and Inclusion Requirements

OHA, in collaboration with our clients, often presents to Disability Access and Inclusion reference groups during the design or construction phase of a project. Our role is to act as a conduit between disability sector representatives and advocates, and design and construction professionals.

At times OHA provides an interpretation of the needs of disparate groups or individuals who represent the needs of people with disability, to the designers of spaces and built form. We may also interpret the BCA, Premises Standards and the technical detail of Australian Standards, and the impact of topography, heritage or site constraints, to Access and Inclusion Reference Group participants.

Our advice has assisted with tasks including the development of management plans and policy development and the design of built infrastructure that goes beyond minimum access requirements to meet the needs of all users.

Our access consulting services include the following areas of expertise:
