Making Buildings Accessible for All incorporating Part M 2010, Disability Access Certificates and Access Auditing

About the Programme

This programme introduces participants to the key principles of Universal Access, Universal Design, Disability Access Certificates and Access Auditing to ensure all aspects of the built environment are accessible.

This practical workshop is highly interactive, with videos, discussions, case studies, design appraisals, route appraisals, problem-solving of everyday scenarios, examples of everyday barriers faced by people with disabilities and more.

Day two and three of the course aims to build on participants’ existing knowledge, equipping them with the skills to carry out an access audit of the built environment. As part of the course, participants will carry out an access audit on a chosen building. The audit will be reviewed and graded as part of course.


The aim of this course is to equip participants with an understanding of how to carry out an access audit and to gain an understanding of Universal Access and Universal Design in the built and external environment. The content would be particularly beneficial to Architects, Consulting Engineers; Construction Personnel and Local Authority technical staff.
