Equality and disability issues have been addressed so many times in the national conferences and seminars. Actually the whole debate has

psychological matters of conflict that has often raised serious concerns and has demanded. Demand for equality and human psychology has confronted each other. Individuals with disability demanded for them special facilities so as to move with the changing world freely, while the social

structure was no way ready to change their way for a particular set of individual group. This whole conflict gave rise to the discriminatory thought that in later stages kept on growing. And soon came the time when it was realized that just because of some disability (either in born or accidental) no one can be deprived of his fundamental rights.

And this lead to the passage of disability discrimination act. According to this act the whole building structure is managed and planned as per access audit guidelines. The purpose of access audit is to evaluate how well a building performs in relation to access and ease to use by a particular set of individuals including people with physical immobility and sensory impairment.

Access audit is essential to identify necessary adjustments to be made in the services provided to the disabled individuals as per the

disability discrimination act provisions and Part M of building regulations. The first step with the access audit is to recognize the potential obstacles and devising ways to eliminate the possible litigation by discriminating with disabled.

The access audit also forms the part being future disabled action plans enabling incorporation of reasonable adjustments of future refurbishments, regular maintenance and budget planning.

The whole purpose of access audit is to spread the disability awareness and make a better accessibility for the people with disability all around. Basically this concept is seen with the commercial complexes and buildings of masses. Physical barriers considered in the access audit statement are parking, approach and route to entrance, lighting and signage to entrance, surfaces of approach, street and ground furniture, steps

and ramps, entrance doors and thresholds, reception areas, including desks, seating and lighting.

And the premises area includes alternations in lateral circulation, width of corridors etc, internal direction signs, Floor surfaces and tonal contrasts of surfaces, vertical circulation including lifts and stairs, toilets, washrooms, changing and bathroom facilities, access to eating in bars and restaurants, public room access layout, lighting, heating and acoustics, accessibility of switches, handles and controls, telephone and alarms etc.

Similarly the fire exists and escape routes are to be managed. Besides that access audit also deals with the equality training that includes training the staff and alter their attitudinal approach towards the disabled. In short the whole access consulting is managed and planned to bring convenience and ultimate access to the individuals with disability. And

getting the planning for the building as per the disability discrimination act is compulsory for each and every individual.
