FREE Calculator for Accessible SOUs & Accessible Car parking spaces for Class 3 Buildings

Photo of an Accessible Bedroom in a HotelVista Access Architects receives regular inquires as to requirements for Accessible Car parking spaces for Class 3 developments such as Hotels, Motels, Group homes, Hostels etc.

The number of Accessible Car parking spaces for Class 3 developments depends on:
- The total number of the Car parking spaces provided in the development;
- The total number of SOUs (Sole occupancy units/ bedrooms) and
- The total number of Accessible Bedrooms as determined by BCA Table D3.1.

The calculations involve determining the Accessible SOU numbers through the BCA Table D3.1 and then multipying the total number of Car parking spaces by the percentage of the Accessible
SOUs/ Bedrooms to the total number of SOUs/ Bedrooms, with the answer taken to the next whole
figure.

Vista Access Architect's website offers a FREE Class 3 Accessible SOUs and Accessible Parking Calculator to simplify the process. Just enter the total number of SOUs/ Bedroom and the total number of Car parking spaces provided and the
Calculator will display the requirements for both, Accessible SOUs/ Bedrooms as well as the Accessible Car Parking spaces as required by the BCA 2016 for your project.
