We are experts in access for People of Determination. Our accessibility audits are the easiest and most economical way to make sure you not only open up your premises to every visitor, but also meet your obligations under relevant local legislation.
From Dubai’s Universal Design Code to Saudi Arabia’s Disability Code and from Kuwait’s Law No 8, to drawing on international best practice, we understand the differences and challenges across the Middle East and North Africa.
We take a common-sense approach to Universal Design too. We will highlight lots of significant but inexpensive changes – so improving your accessibility can cost a lot less than you imagine.How we can help
Each of our Access Consultants identify as People of Determination. Our individual experiences of disability provides a unique insight into the barriers that people face.
That’s why organisations across the government, health care, education, transportation, entertainment, retail and architectural sectors trust us to get it right. We work very closely with our clients to find the most cost-effective way to implement access for People of Determination.Our story
