Risk mitigation is essentially taking steps to reduce a negative outcome and thereby decreasing the riskiness of a project.

Typical risks to consider during a building project generally relate to those that will increase costs or cause delays in scheduling.

Engaging MAA to review designs and project plans to identify any disability access issues can help reduce this risk, and ensure a project stays on budget and schedule. The last thing anyone would want after working on a design for months, or even years, is to find that it doesn’t comply with the BCA and needs a redesign to achieve compliance, resulting in delays, cost blowouts and delayed projects.
