New handrails installed

St Stephen’s Hall and Forecourt Redevelopment Project

Finishing is HARD!

Just when we thought we are nearly at the end new things seem to keep springing up to surprise us. One example is a need to install a hearing augmentation system which was unfortunately omitted in the original designs. Such systems – older systems called ‘hearing loops’ – are often found in public spaces and venues that have in-built PA or audio amplification. We are currently evaluating different types of hearing augmentation systems to make sure everyone can use this space with ease and dignity.

New handrails have been installed. No one is more excited about this than Juliet and Cheryl who have already given them a test slide!

Thanks to the Brisbane City Council Access and Inclusion Community Partnership Grant for contribution toward ramps, handrails, tactile indicators, stair nosings, accessible parking and amenities.
