Direct Access are excited to be involved in a major development project in Saudi Arabia that will contribute hugely to the cultural and commercial fabric of this amazing country. Direct Access will be adding our expertise in accessibility towards the shared goal of creating inclusive design so that people of all abilities can access, enjoy and experience this phenomenal project. Our audit will see major cultural architecture changes that will increase accessibility while respecting the heritage of the site in question, the finer details of which we will reveal as and when we can.
Direct Access is no stranger to working with clients in the Middle East. With the long awaited opening of Expo 2020 finally kicking off tonight, our architectural experience and lived knowledge of disability no doubt informed the decision to make our founder Steven Mifsud a Director of Accessibility for this landmark event, which will be the first world expo in the Middle East in what is arguably one of the world’s most accessible cities; Dubai.
