Abstract

This project examined building accessibility available to the disabled throughout the Borough of Merton, England. Research involved learning about individual disabilities that affected mobility and identifying buildings that were used frequently by or were need by the disabled. These buildings were assessed for the renovations they had or didn't have for disabled access. The team designed a website for building accessibility evaluations as well as "Awareness Plaques" to be placed on public buildings to indicate the types of facilities available for the disabled. Both the website and plaques are intended to increase awareness about issues of disabled accessibility in the Borough of Merton.
