Disabled Access Night

May 2011 at our Architectural Practice

Disabled Access NightParticipating in Disabled Access Night in Paris
A group of architects from our practice recently participated in the first "Nuit de l'Accessibilité" which was organised by the group jaccede.com in Paris on the 26th May 2011.

Undertaken in partnership with the Mairie of Paris and the RATP, this event was designed to get people involved in issues surrounding the accessibility of Paris's night spots.  
Our goal for the evening was to give our full support to the work of groups such as J'accede by helping in assessing the disabled access of places such as bars and restaurants for people with reduced mobility or those in wheelchairs.  

Throughout the evening 300 volunteers in small teams visited bars, cafés and restaurants to find the ones that were able to welcome people with reduced mobility and also to inform people about the importance of accessibility for all.

The teams spent the evening on the Parisian streets, taking it in turns to be wheeled around in a wheelchair in order to better understand the problems faced by wheelchair users. We also took this opportunity to learn about how we can improve the disabled access in our construction projects and ensure that they are accessible to all.

Each location we visited was given a score for it's accessibility and the results can be seen in the database at jaccede.com. The evening finished with a concert at La Bellevilloise.
