DASS Solutions is a team of passionate experts dedicated to providing innovative and progressive accessibility and safety solutions to overcome barriers and hazards in the built environment. We leverage our expertise to help businesses and communities achieve accessibility compliance and build a safer, more inclusive society.
As organizations in the region strive to meet and exceed increasing governmental and societal expectations of accessibility and safety, we recognized a need for a different approach to these crucial elements.
Using a people-first approach we provide answers and strategies necessary to equip government and private organizations with universally accessible facilities and services that are inclusive to both employees and customers.
Our insights into regional and internationally accepted accessibility codes such as the Dubai Universal Design Code (DUDC), the UK’s Part M and the Americans with Disabilities Act design guidelines, help us transition our clients beyond minimum compliance to true inclusivity.
DASS Solutions will help ensure that your organization’s premises, processes and services are accessible to persons with disabilities (people of determination) and help identify business opportunities that result from adopting universal accessibility and inclusion.
