We have a strong, established presence in the UK and are often invited to present at conferences across the globe on Universal Design.
Some countries we have worked in include the United States, Australia, France, Canada, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. In the latter, we have engaged with several organisations exploring how the new Dubai Universal Design Code and the Abu Dhabi International Accessibility Standards can be best met. Our UK and Ireland experience includes our work on the Technical Guidance Document, Part M included consultation on Luas, Dublin’s tram network, as well as as well as consulting on the first-ever BSI standard providing guidance on neurodiversity and the built environment; PAS 6463 Design for the mind.
Our access audits fully evaluate your premises or environment to check all provisions for disabled access are in place. Using their trained eye and first-hand experience of disability issues, our Consultants offer practical, professional advice on overcoming a wide range of physical barriers and ensuring access for all.
