A new construction project can involve an army of experts all working towards the same aim but not necessarily aware of the fine detail which can make or break the best-laid plans.
You might have a lead architect, someone looking after construction design and management, a fire engineer, a mechanical and electrical expert, a landscape architect. They are all specialists in their respective disciplines but they may not necessarily anticipate the accessibility impact of their individual contributions on the wider project.
By appointing an access consultant to the team you can ensure you get things right first time and avoid the delays to a project that result from having to revise the work of one specialist and then make sure it fits with the plans of all the others. The savings in time and money are such that typically the investment will pay for itself.
