  3. Are the entrance doors and internal circulation doors wide enough for wheelchair access?
  4. Does the building have an accessible toilet and if so, does it meet current standards in terms of size, layout, facilities and colour contrast?
  5. Consider acoustics and whether a hearing loop should be installed.
  6. Ensure there is a good colour contrast between doors, switches and walls, and for any obstructions such as columns.
