DesignABLE Environments Role: An accessibility building audit is the study of an existing building or buildings that is done to determine a defined level of accessibility. Beginning on the grounds of the site and progressing through the building, the trained accessibility auditor(s) identify items that are assets or deficits in the accessibility of the environment.
Results are recorded and a report summarizing the finds is created. Depending on the type of audit, this report may range from a few pages to a comprehensive package including reference architectural drawings and further referrals. The final report serves as a guide to plan renovations and achieve accessibility goals.
