Accessibility

 

The installation of a new lift and careful design of public spaces ensures the building is universally accessible for public and staff. The courtrooms have also been re-designed to provide universal access for persons with mobility difficulties. New signage has also been designed with accessibility in mind and induction loops have been installed in the courtrooms for use by users of hearing aids.

The total cost of the design, build, and fit-out of the newly refurbished and extended facilities is €8.5 million. The project was completed a month ahead of schedule – with works taking place between June 2009 and August 2010. Ends.
