Somerville Scan BS8300:2009 Accessible Design

Integrated Signage for All

Working to BS8300:2009 offers a great opportunity to create and re-fit buildings and public spaces that meet the recognised needs for accessibility in all areas.

SomervilleSCAN is now able to offer a completely new way of enabling blind and partially sighted, and other users (such as older persons, children and people with learning disabilities) to comprehend and move through both public spaces and buildings.

Using the latest in 3D design, current research in tactile understanding and access to the award-winnng printer technology, we can enhance both new and existing buildings and spaces with tactile signage and guides that can truly enable visitors to understand those spaces and how they can interact and move through them independently.

We offer robust signage that can ensure people of all abilities and ages can find where they are and where they want to go.

In emergencies, the same tactile signage is an added measure to help everyone to exit the area safely.

Using a set of tactile designs that are understandable by all and placed consistently across the physical spaces, we offer an enabling experience that exceeds the requirement of BS8300:2009 as well as existing building advice and disability legislation.

We offer both an audit and advice service and can provide a full service of design, manufacture, fitting and maintenance using experienced architectural and access designers with quality managed building contractors.
