About Access joins Chamber

A company which is winning recognition nationally for its work to ensure public and private sector organisations are genuinely open for business has now joined the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce

About Access is a leader in advising on accessibility of premises and making sure they can be used by disabled people.

Operating nationwide, About Access recently completed two contracts for property audits for the Virgin group – studying the premises in Crawley, Sussex, of Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Holidays.

Managing Director Ian Streets was also appointed by the Access Association as its representative on BSI Standards, the UK’s national standards body, to advise on appropriate designs for buildings and their surrounding areas.

“Virgin is probably the highest profile business we have worked with and the projects demonstrate that we can operate at the highest level,” said Ian.

“The appointment by the Access Association is a real honour because they are highly respected in the access field, but that shows the progress we have made.”

Ian, who is also a member of the National Register of Access Consultants, launched About Access in 2006.
