Disability design matters are discussed including universal access, vision, hearing augmentation, changing places etc. and incorporating new changes on meeting disability requirements on drawings.
In this one-hour presentation Bruce will walk you through the newly included accessible adult change facilities (Changing Places) that were included within the 2019 version of the BCA. He will also provide an overview of luminance contrast detailing why it is so critical to people with vision impairment and explain how it can be easily calculated, this then leads into stair nosing compliance and the key issues he regularly sees.
Equal Access Group
Bruce has over 36 years of experience in disability access, architectural design, documentation & project management
He formed Equal Access Pty Ltd in 2006 in response to a growing recognition, that whilst businesses were being urged to respond to their obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act, the majority of assistance available was focused almost entirely upon the needs of the individual with a disability without an understanding of the impacts and practicalities for building owners, managers and consultants.
Bruce also specialises in evacuation procedures and policy for people with a disability and is a member of the Australian Standard AS3745 development committee. He was also a co-author of the Specialist Disability Accommodation design standards and lead author of the Changing Places design standard.
