This seminar will show how recent changes in regulations, standards and legislation can inform the design process to assist the architect in creating buildings that are accessible and inclusive for all. Areas covered will include:
- The Equality Act 2010
- Changes to the Building Regulations Parts K, M and N affecting accessibility (coming into effect in 2013).
Using flow charts and examples, this seminar will demonstrate how legislation, regulation and guidance can be used to support the design process in creating places and spaces that are accessible and enjoyable for everyone - without stifling design freedom or creativity
