Description

The Talk:

This talk is part of the 'Building Accessibility' series. The one hour talk discusses the need to provide a luminance contrast between architectural features in premises.

The presentation also provides an overview of the free Luminance Contrast Assessment Tool (LCAT) developed by Access Central (part of the Egress Group). The LCAT is available from https://luminancecontrast.net.au/

Suitable for anyone responsible for specifying architectural products, certifying designs or checking compliance.

The Presenter:

Presented by Lee Wilson, a disability access and egress consultant in Melbourne. In early 2018 he was appointed as a volunteer Subject Matter Expert (Disability Access) by the Australian Building Codes Board.

Who should attend?

This talk is suitable for people of all backgrounds and professions working in the construction and property management. It is designed as an entry-level introduction to the concept of luminance contrast and how to comply with the minimum prescriptive requirements of the Building Code and the Premises Standards under the DDA. Additionally, best-practice concepts will be presented. The use of the free Luminance Contrast Assessment Tool will also be demonstrated.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The building is conveniently located off the Eastlink (take the BP Service Centre exit).

There are external car parking areas to the east of the building (off Lakeview Drive) and to the west (in front of the adjoining buildings, 35 and 37 Dalmore Drive). The best accessible car parking spaces are located in front of 35 and 37 Dalmore Drive. There are no undercover accessible car parking spaces.

If you are coming from the city via public transport, take the train to Glen Waverley, then catch the 753 bus to Nyadale Drive (and then it is a 2km walk to the office building though).

Is the building wheelchair accessible?

Yes, it is a newly constructed office building with all accessible entrances, passenger lift, left-hand and right-hand configuration accessible toilets. However, avoid the eastern external car parking area if you have any difficulties using a stair (as above, use the car park in front of 35 and 37 Dalmore Drive).

Where is the training room located?

The training room is on the ground floor of the Waterman Business Centre. The room is called The Laneway Boardroom. The photo below is the view as you arrive at the ground floor lobby area. If you walk down past the reception area, the training room is at the end of the internal laneway. See you there.
