26 buildings recognised for attention to accessibility features

For going the extra mile in coming up with user-friendly features, private condominium Reflections at Keppel Bay bagged an inaugural Building and Construction Authority (BCA) award.

Wheelchair users in the condominium can move in and out of each residential block using a specially designed door. Residents and visitors also can find their way around by looking at detailed cube-shaped signs.

The Keppel Bay condominium is one of 26 buildings lauded by the BCA for their universal design features, which means including accessible and inclusive features to cater to all users.

Other winners include the United World College of South East Asia's East campus, the Pasir Ris Sports and Recreation Centre, and Changi Airport Terminal 1. The awards ceremony will be held on May 16 at Resorts World Sentosa.
