Building regulations being dealt with via an approved inspector and independently appointed consultant. It makes the process easier and quicker to review works and approve them.
Inclusive access strategy is being used primarily for the entrance. The current entrance design from the 1930s has reduced accessibility, so the architects designed an entrance at the same level as the outside pavement (with and a lift to every level of the building. They created modern disabled toilets with exact specifications approved by government standards.
