“Accessible Design costs a lot of money!” – Wrong!”

04_Mal_12a_kuching_2Due to our travel experience in developing and emerging economies we know that with simple and cost-effective means accessibility can be created. Where steps would hinder access, within minutes a portable wooden ramp provides access. Where a ship balustrade hinders access into the water, a mobile lift is built with some ropes and knots that provides access to the water. Many of the newly created tools are made to stay- but even more important that accessibility is possible with the simplest of means.

Therefore, below we would like to provide info material for tourism service providers in developing and emerging economies how to create accessibility cost effective. The documents are not just by us created but we also try to gather information from other sources. Further we provide free advisory to tourism service providers in developing and emerging economies on how to make their accommodation wheelchair accessible.

Accessible architecture – “Universal Design”:

“Retrofitting accommodation costs a lot of money and it will look like in a hospital aterwards – Wrong!”

If one thinks ‘Universal Desing’, right from the start, beautiful faciliteis and resorts can be created.

With simple, cost-effective means and adaptations one can also create accessible faciliteis and acommodations within exisiting infrastructures.
