The Physical Environment: Legal and Practical Considerations
The SCIS Accessibility Handbook was revised in 2017 taking into account the Equality Act 2010 and the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014. ADP Architecture were a key partner in this publication, providing essential guidance with regard to the physical environment. We are delighted that ADP Architecture are hosting this event in their central Edinburgh studio, with Stephen Miles, Studio Director in the Chair.
The event will be comprised of 3 sessions, with each session incorporating a Q&A:
Demystifying Accessibility Guidance
Anita Chan, ADP Architecture will lead this session. Anita worked closely with SCIS and will provide an overview of the handbook in this context. She will consider aspects such as the legislation, nature and scope of an Accessibility Group and additional considerations such as fire, safety, security and listed building restrictions.
Accessibility and other technical changes to historic buildings
The implications of wider issues will be discussed. Using case studies the legislation, procedure/ consultation and change in historic environment will all be explored.
Design in the Historic Environment
This session will be led by Stephen Miles and Graeme Feechan, Edinburgh Studio Directors. Using case studies consideration will be given to a range of issues including the context of historic buildings, understanding the significance of change, and stakeholder engagement.
The event will conclude with a networking lunch.
