Constructing a disability and mobility ramp without disrupting the general public whilst building.

Health Centre Disability - Mobility Ramp

Project Brief

  • We were commissioned a job to construct a disability and mobility ramp plus steps to a health centre entrance.
  • To construct a bin store and also to make alteration to the line marking in the car park.
  • To maintain access for clients and the general public for duration of contract but also provide protection and separation between us, the contractors, and the general public.

The Process

  • Minor alterations made to existing steps and construction area fenced off to maintain access.
  • Existing ramp demolished and disposed of safely.
  • Tarmac cut, foundations dug and edgings to new ramp installed.
  • Prepared base by laying and compacting MOT hardcore.
  • Tactile pavers laid within landing areas.
  • Ramps concreted and tamp finish provided.
  • Powder coated NHS blue handrails installed as per specification.
  • Steps constructed out of hours to maintain access for the public during surgery times.
  • Carpark tarmac made good, existing lines removed and new line marking painted to show "No Parking" zones and disabled parking bays.
  • New bin store constructed.

The Result

  • The surgery now complies with document M access and use of a building.
  • The patients can now access the building safely without fear of further injury or need assistance to see the doctor.
  • The car park has reserved spaces for those who are disabled or leasable.
