As a delivery partner of the East London Inclusive Enterprise Zone, which aims to support disability-led innovation, Plexal’s made a number of changes already to optimise our physical workspace for accessibility. And our latest change is the upgrading of a hotdesking zone in the middle of Plexal.
We’ve worked with a whole community of partners, including Disability Rights UK, the Global Disability Innovation Hub, Scope, Here East and University College London, to design a space that anyone with a seen or unseen disability can comfortably work in.
The space features:
- improved acoustics and noise reduction for people who might find it disorientating to work in a noisy environment
changes to the floor to reduce the level of glare. The living moss we’ve put in helps with this.
- 32 height-adjustable desks. You can work while sitting or standing at a height that suits you.
- accessible desks: we’ll make sure that four desks in the area are left without a chair so there will be accessible space for wheelchair users
- a breakfast bar overlooking Canalside
Come along and try it out!
