Case studies


Royal Holloway, University of London


Background

Royal Holloway is one of the largest colleges in the University of London with an excellent reputation for teaching and research. The buildings are Grade 1 listed and since opening in 1886 the College has become one of the top research-led university institutions in the country.

Project

The College contacted Easiaccess because they needed specialist support to make their facilities accessible to everyone. In order to make the buildings compliant with DDA regulations, and to enable wheelchair users at the campus access to a wider range of facilities within various locations around the College, Easiaccess were contracted to install a series of access solutions.

Outcome

Easiaccess installed 12 ramps in total around the campus, making the College accessible and wheelchair friendly. This project had the added complexity of the restrictions of a Grade 1 listed building, and keeping within planning regulations, but this is a challenge that Easiaccess overcame with ease. One of the more complex ramping systems that they installed was to the altar in the old chapel where graduation ceremonies takes place. It was important that these alterations were of the highest standard both in terms of functionality and appearance.
