RIBA London (Portland Place) - Inclusive design for external built environments, RIBA, Tuesday, 17. November 2020

Inclusive design for external built environments





This seminar will consider how the external built environment, including streets, landscaped areas, the approach to a building and the spaces between and around buildings, can be designed, built and managed to achieve an inclusive environment. 



 


The most recent publication of BS 8300:2018: Design of an accessible and inclusive built environment includes a separate code of practice, which exclusively considers the external environment. It includes aspects of the wider external environment that were not covered in the original standard, particularly in relation to the external public realm. This seminar will explore the importance of this link in the access chain and how public realm, streets and approaches to buildings are vital in ensuring safe, dignified and independent access to services and facilities for all building users. This interactive seminar will cover: 



 


· Navigation, orientation and way finding: inclusive of signage and lighting 


· Public transport infrastructure: bus and tram 


 


· Parking provision: on-street and off-street, cycle parking, electric vehicle charging, setting down and picking up points 


· Approaches to and around building 


· Access routes: hazards, surfaces, obstructions 


· Public facilities: seating, landscaping, art, public realm, shared space principles
