    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides guidance on the design of domestic and non-domestic buildings and their approaches so that they are convenient and safe to use by disabled people. Although the primary aim of these recommendations is for application to new buildings, they can also be used as guidelines for assessing the accessibility and usability of existing buildings and where practicable, as a basis for their improvement.
