    Australian Disabled Access Consultants negotiates entry access solution for Sydney restaurant

    Australian Disabled Access Consultants

    Australian Disabled Access Consultants negotiated an assisted entry access solution and access management plan for a restaurant fit-out on Oxford Street, Bondi Junction in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

    Australian Disabled Access Consultants arranged a compliant fit-out design that facilitated assisted entry disabled access into and within the restaurant located at Shop 6, 310-330 Oxford Street.

    Designed by Two Form Architecture & Interior Design of Surry Hills, the fit-out provided assisted entry into and within the restaurant for people living with disability.

    Australian Disabled Access Consultants’ scope of work included providing disabled access design advice to ensure compliance with the principles of the Disabilities Discrimination Act 1992, Waverley Council’s Development Control Plan accessibility guidelines, Part D3 of the Building Code of Australia and the Disability Access to Premises Standards 2010, and Australian Standards AS1428.1-2009, AS1428.2-1993 and AS1428.4.1-2009.

    The restaurant is located in a recently constructed multi-storey mixed development retail and residential building with multiple tenancies. The restaurant has two floor levels separated by two internal steps near the front entry doorway, preventing an internal step-less pathway of travel.

    The disabled access and wheelchair access guidelines were considered for continuous safe pathway of travel into and within the restaurant’s customer floor area; the principal front entry doorway; internal circulation areas; door and window glazing; existing and new doorway widths and circulation areas; pathways of travel widths and heights; and fitments.

    Australian Disabled Access Consultants prepared the disabled access assessment report for the fit-out’s compliant design elements and congratulated Two Form Architecture & Interior Design for its innovative fit-out design techniques to improve disabled access and wheelchair access within the restaurant.

    Additionally, the restaurant’s internal steps prevented a smooth pathway of travel within the shop to the customer service counter area.

    Australian Disabled Access Consultants prepared an assisted entry alternate solution supported by an access management plan for facilitating disabled access to enable people with a disability to reach the customer food display and the service counter in an equitable, dignified and safe manner. Implementing this plan would satisfy the principles of the Disability Discrimination Act and the disabled access objectives and provisions of Part D3 of the Building Code of Australia and the Disability Access to Premises Standards 2010.
