Equitable Access

Equipping projects with equitable access while achieving design goals is a core function of the Credwell Access team.

Our Unrestricted Building Surveyors (formerly known as A1 Accredited) can guide your project through the various tiers of accessibility requirements. From BCA compliance for equitable access and provision of toilets, to ensuring disability premises standards are met and finally, council planning requirements are achieved.

Our accredited Livable and Adaptable and Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) housing assessors are well-versed in implementing integrated design for livable and adaptable housing, enabling people with disabilities to utilize or adapt the dwelling to individual requirements.

Our fully qualified team is ready to assist with your project’s access requirements.
