Author: Standards Australia,
Year: 2009
Type: Book


This Standard specifies the design requirements applicable to new building work, excluding work to private residences, to provide access for people with disabilities. Particular attention is given to accessways and circulation spaces and consistent linkages suitable for use by people who use wheelchairs, and access and facilities for people with ambulatory disabilities and for people with sensory disabilities. NOTES: 1 This Standard does not include requirements for furniture and fitments used in the fitouts of such buildings (see Preface). 2 Buildings that are purpose-built for people with disabilities should be designed with regard for the special need of the occupants of these buildings over and above the requirements of the BCA and this Part of the Standard. 3 This Standard may also be applied for the provision of access to existing buildings.
