Two Access Reviews Completed
Public Health Wales and Aberdare Community School reviews before presentation
Last week Accessible Wales handed in two Access Reviews, one for Rhondda Cynon Taff on Aberdare Community School and the second for Public Health Wales on their new offices in Capital Quarter 2, Cardiff.
These two jobs represent the two opposite ends of the work we carry out as part of our Access Consultancy Service.
Aberdare Community School
Firstly was a review of the new Community School, a school designed to be fully accessible. This building was already open and our review involved looking at access from a pupil’s perspective.
Public Health Wales new office
The second piece of work was reviewing the access to a new building. Previous clients Public Health Wales were moving offices into a new building and commissioned us to look at the accessibility before any of the furniture was put in place. This is always good practice as it can save on alterations once the building is finished. While these are not always costly they can have an impact on the way a building is used.
Both pieces of work were a pleasure to undertake, both buildings have the potential to be beacons in relation to access.
If you would like to know more about the accessibility of your building please get in touch. All our access services can be tailored to any building, whether it’s a one room shop, hospital, listed building or six story new building we cater for all.

We are proud today to have been access reviewing Capital Quarter 2 building in Cardiff for Public Health Wales. The building is a blank canvas, with no furniture in. Public Health Wales and their designers have put an exceptional amount of work in making the building accessible, and we are very impressed that we’ve been asked to consult on the access at such an early stage.
Temple of Peace a building that was occupied by Public Health Wales
In 2015 Accessible Wales consulted for Public Health Wales on access to the Temple of Peace. The Temple of Peace is 70 – 75 years old, and is a grade two listed building. This means that there can be difficulties when making physical alterations regarding access improvement. The building is used for external events such as weddings and filming by television companies.
