There are two accessible parking bays marked out on either side of the main entrance. These can be used by staff working in the building. If you are visiting, it is advisable to contact the building beforehand to book a parking space. Both spaces are very close to the main entrance.

The main entrance is at the front of the building and is accessed from Churchill Drive. There is level access from Churchill Drive to the entrance. The double doors are powered and open automatically during office hours. Outside of these times they are operated using the proximity card reader to the right hand side; this is at an accessible height for wheelchair users.

The next door is manually operated and some people may find this difficult to use – the handle is set fairly high up and there is not a lot of manoeuvring space.

Once through the doors you will find yourself in a lobby area. There is a breakout space to the left, the rest of the building is to the right.

There is a secondary entrance at the rear of the building. This is access controlled at all times. There is a steep ramp up to this door which is manually operated.

There is a platform lift which connects the ground, first and second floors. Many wheelchair users will find there is not enough room to turn inside the lift, although there is a mirror fitted to help when exiting. The buttons are at an accessible height for wheelchair users – please note you will need to keep the button pressed down for the duration of the journey (and when calling the lift).  There is audio and visual information. There is a handrail to the right as you enter the lift. The lift door is manually operated.

All internal doors are manually operated. Most doors have vision panels, although some only have these in the top half. Some of the doors are quite heavy to open. Some door handles are rather high up and may be difficult to grip for some people. Some doors are access controlled – card readers are at an accessible height for wheelchair users.

There are a variety of meeting rooms and hot desking areas on all floor of the building. Some may be too small for wheelchair users. However, there is a good mix including some very spacious rooms. The largest meeting room is on the ground floor. Furniture can be rearranged as needed in all the meeting rooms.

There is a small kitchen on each floor of the building. The kitchens on the ground and first floors are not accessible – there is very little manoeuvring space, and there are no accessible work surfaces or sinks. The kitchen on the third floor is larger than the others meaning that some wheelchair users may be able to use this room (although there are no accessible work surfaces or sinks).
