A Raised Balcony For Brian

For several years, Brian has used a wheelchair and as a result, has been unable to access his balcony at home.  Due to the geometry of both the room and the balcony, there is a severe restriction on ramp lengths that can be used. This has provided challenges on many occasions.

Remap had received a request to produce a raised balcony, which helped to provide Brian with the opportunity to enjoy nature, and the fresh air outside on his balcony.

The level of the balcony was raised using wood joists and decking, which provided height and the number of handrails was increased from two to three. The room width would not allow a single ramp to be used so an intermediate platform was built.

Now Brian is able to access his balcony whenever he wants to, enjoying the ever-changing seasons that the world brings.
