Accessibility, inclusive & universal design
We are a leading consultancy specialized in the accessibility of the built environment for people with movement, sight or hearing difficulties. Our accessibility strategies begin with a thorough understanding of how people use and move through the built environment using innovative techniques of journey mapping and detailed site analysis. Through an understanding of how people with restricted movement, sight or hearing can interact and travel in cities we can create strategies that focus upon all users.
Through actions aimed at people with disabilities we are helping to create cities that are accessible to all and focused on the most vulnerable users. This is helping all people with temporary disabilities, the elderly, families, people with pushchairs travel safely.
