Case Study:
Middlewood Locks

Although Direct Access provides award-winning accessibility audits on an international scale, we remain immensely proud of our work on home soil and Greater Manchester has played a key part for Direct Access over the years.

The £1Bn iconic Middlewood Locks development in the heart of Manchester is a new mixed use neighbourhood spanning 25 acres. The largest construction site in the city, 2,215 homes are being built with 900,000 sq. ft of commercial space, a 200 bed hotel and a canalside park. 

Direct Access has provided Access Appraisals throughout the design and construction phases.


As the infrastructure of the City has grown and developed, so too has Direct Access and our efforts to make the region accessible for residents and visitors alike.
