Inclusive Design for Museums and Heritage
Access and inclusive design consultancy supports museums, galleries and heritage sites in welcoming deaf and disabled people and making collections, interpretation and display more inclusive for them.
Scope of work extends from strategic approach and concept design review through to appraisal and advice on technical detail, facilitation to test features, finishes or inclusive formats and post completion review. Design and installation is also undertaken for small inclusive display and interpretation projects.
A creative and holistic approach to inclusive design is balanced with in-depth knowledge of current inclusive design standards, equality and disability legislation along with knowledge of latest interpretation techniques and conservation display materials. This makes for effective, practical and sustainable solutions.
