Inclusive Design Consultancy.

Inclusive design is about creating meaningful spaces that everyone can use, removing the barriers that create undue effort, stress and separation for people.

Accessible design support.

Whether a new build or refurbishment, we can provide accessible design consultancy at all RIBA stages to help deliver accessible and inclusive buildings.

Accessible design is more than a tick box exercise to comply with local regulations. Truly inclusive buildings are only built considering the needs of everyone and our expert design team are the leaders in their field in design for physical, cognitive and sensory impairments, including design for neurodiversity and dementia. We also have significant experience of designing spaces for older people, gender diversity and design for faith facilities.

We are experienced at working collaboratively with architects, interior designers, contractors and building users from initial project planning to post-occupancy. Our team is always happy to chat through your project requirements informally to see how we can help. Here are some ideas on how we can contribute at different stages of the design process.

  • Stage 0-1: Strategy & Project Brief

  • Stage 2: Concept Design

    • Review architectural drawings and provide recommendations for access improvements.

    • Attend design meetings and help shape the accessible design of the concept design stage.

  • Stage 3-4: Technical Design

    • Review the more detailed design proposals and highlight potential areas where access could be improved.

    • Accessible design recommendations on all elements of the built environment including interior finishes and specifications.

    • If required, Motionspot can provide designs for accessible, adaptable, and future proofed bathrooms, washrooms, and kitchens. This would include 3D visuals of proposals, mood boards, specification, product data sheets, and indicative costs.

    • Detailed product specification, data sheets, and product supply.

  • Stage 5: Construction

    • Comment on contractor-led changes to ensure access is not compromised as the building is constructed.

    • Support for access queries on site including site visits where required.

  • Stage 6-7: Handover & use

    A building is only accessible if the people operating it are aware of the key access principles. Motionspot can help producing:

    • CPD accredited staff training on access features.

    • Access Statements for client websites.

    • Ongoing post-occupancy feedback.

    • Access management plans.

Accessible Design Guides.

We make visually inspiring design guides to help you turn accessibility recommendations into practice.

Grounded in the latest research and evidence-based design thinking, an accessible design guide can provide a framework for the client and their design team highlighting key inclusive design principles and how they should be implemented across a development.

Depending on your needs, they can cover every aspect of your build from layout to interior finishes.

These guides are designed to excite and engage your staff and senior leadership teams, helping to unlock the power of inclusive design in your business. We can also provide relevant training and workshops if required.
