To do this, we can assist with the following:

  • Reviewing Fire Engineering Reports for new buildings to ensure considerations of people with disabilities are made in the fire safety strategy
  • Meeting with Fire Safety Engineers during the development of a new design
  • Assessing existing arrangements, to determine if planning for people with disability is in place
  • Meeting with individuals with a disability to measure how safe they feel in the public space or building
  • Identification of opportunities to provide a safer environment
  • Developing wayfinding strategies to help all occupants identify the safe path of egress out of each space or building
  • Working with event organisers to help develop emergency planning strategies during temporary events

Please review our Services to see how we can assist.
