QLD – HENDRY disability access consultants advise that many building owners and property managers will find themselves in the unenviable position of knowing that the disability access provisions of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) will have an immediate and direct impact on any proposed building works in their buildings, but not knowing exactly where they stand, or what is needed. Advice from building certifiers may be required before applying for a building approval.

While full and complete Disability Access compliance might be a desired outcome, the reality is that many building owners would benefit immensely from knowing their building’s present disability access compliance position from our building certifiers, and having a costed disability access compliance program from which to plan and proceed toward future full compliance.

HENDRY building certifiers provide a complete range of design assessment, inspection, reporting, disability access audits, alternative solution and evaluation services designed to enable and empower building owners in relation to planning for the Disability Access requirements of the BCA.
