Internal Design Ideas to Promote Accessibility  – Thursday 19th May

This session will focus on physical aspects of design, such as horizontal and vertical circulation, and how we can plan these to maximise accessibility. We will also look in more detail at general factors such as colour contrast, surface textures and lighting and the importance of considering every physical and sensory aspect of a design proposal. We will look at architectural details such as handrails, their importance to both accessibility but also the historical character of a building. We will also use this session to look at signage and wayfinding in more detail, how to ensure people can maintain independence and find their way around without installing something that is inappropriate or imposing.

External Design Ideas to Promote Accessibility – Thursday 16th June

This session will take an in-depth look at the external environments that surround our historic and heritage assets, indeed some sites are purely an external entity. Here we will look at solutions to access barriers and provides guidance on achieving a balance between access and conservation and gives examples of good practice.

Which Guides and Documents Can Help Me to Achieve Good Design Outcomes And Compliance? – Thursday 18th August
