  2. 2. The Main Entrance to the Grand Hall (Dewan Besar)•too steep for the people on the wheelchair•no railing provided•no tactile paving tiles - no "warning" or "guide" to thedisabled people.
  3. 3. MBPJ The maximum permissible slope should not exceed a 1:12 gradient with the minimum clear width of 1800mm. Length of a ramp must be in the range of 600mm to 1200mm and the maximum rise is 215mm. Hence, a user-friendly slope should be provided. Handrails must be fitted on ramps with certain specification for comfort and safety of the users, which the girth of the handrail (ukurlilit) is 40mm to 50mm and the height of handrails is 3 feet (or 900mm). Tactile paving should be provided continuously along the walkway of pedestrians towards the main entrance without any obstructions. It also has to be provided from the disabled parking spaces to the main entrance. Providing tactile paving for blind people is a must .
  4. 4. Route to the Toilet Near in the Grand HallIssues•no accessible toilet provided for thedisabled people.•stairs designed are not easilyaccessible for the disabled peoplebecause the rise of the stairs is too highfor them to climb.SuggestionsAccording to MBPJ requirement, height of a riser should not exceed 180mm andminimum tread is 300mm.After every two-meter height, there should be a landing area of 1200mm x2000mm with handrail provided.
  5. 5. Accessible Toilets located outside the grand hall. Issues •There are two accessible toilets for the disabled people located on the both sides of the external of Grand Hall. •No proper walkway for the disabled people to access to the accessible toilets •The travel distance from the interior of the Grand Hall to the accessible toilets are far. •Ramps are provided for the wheelchair users to mobilize themselves to the toilet, but with no handrails and barriers for safety concern.
  6. 6. Suggestions:•Proper stairways should be designed to accommodate the people withdisabilities, such as the elderly, pregnant women and those who are ill.•Handrails should be fitted along with the kerb to assist people with disabilities.
  7. 7. Heights and Arrangement of Fittings in a Height of Various Fittings inUnisex Wheel Chair- Accessible Toilet Toilet Accommodation
  8. 8. Upper floor of the Grand HallSmall Gateway Leads to the Upper Floorof the Grand Hall•No ramps or disabled facilities providedfor the disable users to access to theupper floor of the Grand Hall.•The disabled people only allowed toaccess into the hall via ground floor. Ramps Provided within the Grand Hall. •mobile ramp, which can be placed anywhere preferable, along the two steps stair •used for loading and unloading purposes. •provide easy access for the disabled people in and out the hall.
  9. 9. Alternative Accessible RouteIssues:Ramp outside of the Grand Hall•Available at the outside of the Grand Hall.•The only convenient ramp for the disabledpeople to access into the hall,•This ramp is wide enough and there is kerbsprovided .•Lacking of is the handrails for the disabledpeople to hold onto•This ramp is not sheltered, thus it would beinconvenience for the disabled people to use if it was raining.Suggestions:According to MBPJ; the accessible routes have to be very convenient andwithout obstacles.It has to be very well connected between inside and outside of the building.The whole spaces within the building have to be accessible by wheelchairusers.
  10. 10. ParkingIssues :There is no designated parking space forthe disabled, only VIP parking spacesavailable. The walkway width is less than the requirement for a wheelchairNon-covered walkway to main entrance,as there is no ramp or direct access to themain entrance for the disabled, onlygrand stairs.
  11. 11. ISSUEPublic parking opposite Hall Ramp with handrail Assume that suppose to have OKU parking. Opposite the hall.. -no designated oku Parking at the hall. -.disadvantages have to cross the road to reach the hall
  12. 12. ISSUE accessible ramp from public parking to the Hall. -no handrail provided. -and the pavement is not well maintain.
  13. 13. Conclusion There were noticeable aspects that showed lack of consideration for disabled users in the design of the Grand Hall, in terms of facilities, accessibilities and circulation. The lack of concern probably due to there isnt much of a demand and misunderstanding of the term "universal design". People with disabilities are not limited to those who are visually impaired, or on wheelchair, they could be anyone who are pregnant, ill, deaf or elderly. Thus, promoting the universal design concept should be prioritize and proper guidelines and regulations should be available to all parties for successful implementation. Moreover, the importance of raising awareness and understanding among architects and technicians should not be neglected, especially the younger generation.
