St Paul’s Cathedral, London

Requirement: Tasked with installing a wheelchair ramp to the North Transept of the iconic building. The ramp would provide safe and modern wheelchair access for visitors, as the existing wooden structure was disintegrating and dangerous for public use.

Solution: Due to the historic nature of the site, the support legs weren’t bolted down.  Instead, the legs were connected by cross-braces to ensure rigidiity. In addition, we allowed for extra support legs to ensure stability. 

All precautions were taken to prevent any damage being caused to the site’s cobbled ground or stoned steps. Conservation and planning authorities were also consulted throughout the design process.          

We consciously ensure to take special care when dealing with historic buildings, as we acknowledge that sites need to be carefully preserved, so that future generations can continue to enjoy them.
