The project for the University of Leeds was focused on a Health & Safety audit and Disability Access Consultancy of 150 buildings on the campus. It required a successful partnership with the various student and staff disability groups and forums associated with the University.
Our Director Alex Taggart, managed this prestigious project prior to joining Adams Consulting Group.
Phase 1 of this project involved carrying out a strategic health & safety audits covering over 150 campus buildings. In addition a comprehensive disability access audit was carried out covering all campus buildings including student residences and external environments. The audits produced a detailed, prioritised and costed Implementation Plan to ensure that the University meet their requirements under the Health & Safety at Work Act and the Disability Discrimination Act 2005/ Equality Act 2010.

The project was managed by Alex Taggart and Brian Taggart throughout and involved carrying out a major stakeholder consultation exercise involving a number of events designed to create greater awareness of the issues that disabled people face and to encourage involvement in the implementation project.
Alex & Brian delivered a series of information seminars to the University management, educational staff, students and estates staff over a 2 year period.
Alex and Brian also forged a successful partnership with the various student and staff disability groups and forums associated with the University. This partnership ensured that disabled users were fully consulted on the proposals and were given the opportunity to play a prominent role in the project through a unique tri-partite sign-off certification scheme.
