City Hall Plaza Accessibility Improvements
Under an on-call contract with the City of Boston, BSC provided design services to the City for accessibility improvements at City Hall Plaza. The project involved working with the Mayor’s Commission for Persons with Disabilities, and designing accessibility improvements to the large open space at Government Center that makes up City Hall Plaza. The plaza was comprised of uneven grouted bricks, concrete, and cobblestone, presenting a challenge to persons with disabilities. BSC Group’s design corrected deficiencies in accordance with the Massachusetts Architectural Access Board and the Federal Department of Justice Standards for Accessible Design and provided an accessible route across the plaza.
