Keen to know if a place, in Singapore, is ‘friendly’ to People with Disabilities?
Look no further than the following site, by the Building & Construction Authority (BCA) – http://www.bca.gov.sg/friendlybuilding/FindBuilding/FriendlyFeatures.aspx
Tourists and locals alike, can benefit from checking the site, to ascertain if the place they intend to visit, does come with disability-friendly features.
For example, Sengkang Sports & Recreation Centre, can be revealed by the search facility to be highly ‘friendly’, as indicated by the five smiley icons (see the picture, extracted from the search results obtained from a check on the sports facilities in the Sengkang vicinity). The ‘friendly’ features, as well as intended user groups, associated with the venue, are also depicted accordingly.
