Building Access

There are two glass doors on the street that open outwards to get into the building. With both open there is 118cm room to pass through.

Our office is open between 10am and 5pm. Next to the glass door on the right there is a doorbell intercom which connects to our foyer. Pressing the intercom button will connect you to a phone upstairs. Please note that this button is 1.5 meters off the ground and is sometimes behind a glass door if the right-hand door is open.

Before 6pm one of the two doors are open. One can be opened outwards. They are heavy doors so they cannot always be opened by someone independently. Please let us know if you would like us to open both doors before your arrival.

There is an elevator on the ground floor. The elevator door is 85cm wide.

The elevator buttons are 1.4 meters off the ground.

The buttons have braille.

There is an emergency telephone button.

The door into the foyer is usually open until 5pm. Please let us know if you need it opened later.

If you prefer to take the stairs, there are two flights of stairs, which have railing.
The steps are grey concrete and are not colour-contrasted or tactile.

Our carpets are thin and suitable for wheelchairs.

Our studio doors are heavy and cannot always be opened independently. The handles are 1 meter off the ground. The studio doors are 87cm wide. There are no tactile indicators on the doors.

We have room reset posters in each of our studios that encourage our program makers to make sure nothing is left in a place that could get in the way of someone who uses a mobility aid. It also encourages people to leave two spots at the desk for wheelchair users.

We have an accessible bathroom with an accessible sign on the door. At this stage we do not have a call button fitted in the bathroom.

We have telephones you can use that are placed at an accessible height in each of our studios.

We have a quiet room with dim lighting if you require it.

Our kitchen is at the back of the building. All surfaces are at an accessible height. We have straws, easy grip cutlery and plastic cups available.

Currently, none of our staff speak New Zealand Sign Language.
