In recent years new laws and reforms have been enacted to better reflect the community and those who access the built environment or any building within it. Though these laws are well intentioned and have led to great strides in accessibility and community understanding, they are not sufficient to best represent both the client’s needs and the needs of the end user.
A major focus for iAccess over the next decade will be to better these laws by advocating for them to be streamlined, removing contradictions between legislation.
Our goal is to encourage the building industry to understand the social and economic benefits of inclusivity and accessibility rather than feeling like a ‘disability tax’ has been imposed.
At the core of iAccess’ practical focus is a unique mantra to never disrupt the design, but instead to support and enhance the design itself.
Over the last 25 years great change has been made in this sector and a more vibrant community exists because of it. Now it is our mission to ensure that significantly greater change occurs in the next 25 years, such that equitable access for all is simply a given.
